Project developer Anglesey Mining on Monday published the results of its scoping study for the Parys Mountain copper/zinc/lead project, in north Wales, which demonstrates a viable mine development.
The study, which Micon International and Fairport Engineering prepared, envisages a mining rate of 1 000 t/d, to produce an average of 14 000 t/y of zinc concentrate at 57% zinc, 7 200 t/y of lead concentrate at 52% lead and 4 000 t/y of copper concentrate at 25% copper, over an initial eight-year mine life.
