SMM9, March 8 / PRNewswire-FirstCall-Asianet /-- Australian mining company Ironbark Zinc recently announced that it has provided an additional 90, 000 tons of zinc in the first six years of production following a review of the mining plan for the Citronen zinc mine in Greenland.
The review brings the optimal size of the project to 3.3 million tons of zinc per year, and the life of the mine has been determined to be 14 years.
The company said the increase in production could be achieved because new double grooves were installed to approach the main orebody, which would greatly improve metal recovery.
The Citronen project is positioned as a priority investment project in Ironbark's main zinc project because of its long mine life, potential for large-scale exploration, valid mining licences and the support of Glencore and Trafigura, the off-take agreement with Glencore and Trafigura will result in the delivery of about 70 per cent of the concentrate produced by Citronen.
