Record copper production

Red River improved the operating performance in the March quarter at Thalanga by improving mill production and throughput, resulting in higher production of zinc and lead concentrates and record copper concentrate production.

Mine production for the March quarter totalled 91,000 tonnes at 9.4% zinc equivalent, compared to the December quarter's 60,000 tonnes at 9% zinc equivalent.

Total ore processed in the three months was 84,000 tonnes at 8.5% zinc equivalent, up from 66,000 tonnes at 8.4% in the previous quarter.

Copper concentrate production was 2,310 tonnes, a record quarterly total and well up on the 876 tonnes of the previous quarter.

Zinc concentrate increased to 4,310 tonnes in the quarter ending March 31 compared with 3,781 tonnes in the December quarter.

Lead concentrate increased to 1,117 tonnes, up from 876 tonnes in the previous period.

Hillgrove restart

The company recently acquired the high-grade Hillgrove Gold Project in New South Wales, with the intent to commence gold production in 2020.

During the March quarter, metallurgical test work for Hillgrove’s Bakers Creek gold stockpile demonstrated free gold and simple processing route, providing a rapid low capex restart opportunity with low-cost gold production.

The stockpile has a maiden JORC mineral resource of 225,000 tonnes at 2.5 g/t gold.

Red River has also commenced the acquisition of equipment (gravity gold concentrate circuit) for the planned restart.
