The company recently identified a new process to increase gold and silver recoveries from the Iron Blow VMS deposit of its Hayes Creek Zinc-Gold-Silver Project in the Northern Territory.

Innovative leaching test work on the Iron Blow float tailings stream indicates the potential for recovery of about 13,000 ounces of gold and 1 million ounces of silver that would otherwise be lost to tails.

The optimisation test work was recently completed and results will feed into a definitive feasibility study (DFS) for the Hayes Creek project.

The DFS will incorporate a new unit process designed to capture additional gold and silver from Iron Blow float tails that would otherwise remain locked in the mineral lattice and remain unrecoverable.

This work has the potential to increase the robust economics of the Hayes Creek project which were demonstrated by a pre-feasibility study (PFS) completed in 2017.
