Red River Resources Ltd (ASX:RVR) has mined, processed and produced record amounts from its Thalanga zinc operation over the September quarter in Queensland.

The company produced 6,800 tonnes of zinc concentrate, an increase of 24% on the prior June quarter and 2,747 tonnes of lead concentrate, a 33% increase on the June quarter.

Red River’s managing director Mel Palancian said: “Great to see the site team continue to improve production from both the mine and the processing plant and, we are looking forward to continued increases in concentrate production in the December quarter.”

The Thalanga operations consist of six deposits, however, only the West 45, Far West and Waterloo deposits are part of the current mine plan.

Two of the deposits not in the mine plan are Liontown and Liontown East and recent drilling suggests the two deposits may be linked.

Drilling recently intersected high-grade gold, copper and zinc in the area between the two existing Liontown deposits, known as the Liontown Gap.

The total mineral resources across the two deposits amount to 3.6 million tonnes at 10% zinc equivalent.
