Value enhancement programmes at diversified miner Independence Group’s Jaguar zinc/copper/silver/gold operation, in Western Australia, has demonstrated that the project’s mine life could be extended to 2022, while operational performance could also be improved.

A prefeasibility study completed on the Triumph deposit has confirmed that an estimated ore reserve of 1.2-million tonnes could extend the current Jaguar operation’s mine life to at least 2022. A process plant improvement study has demonstrated opportunities to achieve higher metallurgical recoveries for zinc and copper concentrates, and to grow a new revenue stream through production and sale of a new precious metals concentrate.
