Restart of operations

The company will initially focus on test work in the beneficiation circuit followed by tests in the hydrometallurgical circuit.

NTU will also proceed with the mechanical construction and installation of ore-sorting equipment at the front-end of the pilot plant.

Exploration to enhance life of mine

Exploration activity across the Browns Range tenement package will also be ramped-up, with a budget of $4.5-$5 million being allocated for greenfields exploration, further evaluation of identified mineralisation and to boost confidence in resources, with the objective of increasing the overall life of mine potential of the project.

The information gathered from the pilot plant operation to date and also the upcoming test work programs will provide data for the potential Bankable Feasibility Study of a full-scale commercial facility.
