Paroo Station Lead Mine Gets Approval for Expansion

LeadFX Inc. received approval from the Western Australian government for the Hydrometallurgical Facility and mine extension at the Paroo Station Lead mine, 30 kilometers (km) west of Wiluna in Western Australia.

The proposal involves the construction of a new hydrometallurgical facility and associated infrastructure adjacent to the existing flotation concentrator that is expected to produce approximately 70,000 tons per year (t/y) of lead ingot and increasing the mine disturbance area by 400 ha to accommodate a 15-year mine life for the operation. Lead ingot is expected to be trucked from site to port as an item of general freight.
