With a secondary listing on the JSE now firmly under its belt, Australian base metals firm Orion Minerals is looking to reignite the development of a South African mining asset it believes was abandoned well before its prime – the Prieska zinc/copper project, in the Northern Cape. However, for Orion, it is not so much the reviving of an old mine, but rather the “building of a new mine on an old mine’s footprint”, applying modern technology that previous generation miners never had, to unveil the orebody gems believed to be hidden in the region.
