30 April 2017.- Consolidated Zinc Limited (CZL:ASX) is pleased to present the following quarterly report. OPERATIONS AND DEVELOPMENT – PLOMOSAS PROJECT, MEXICO Scoping Study Commences On 22 February 2017, the Company announced that it had commenced a Scoping Study, led by RungePincockMinarco Ltd and BatteryLimits Pty Ltd to investigate the potential for fast‐tracking development utilising the immediate access to the high‐grade ore in Level 7 and the refurbishment of the small scale plant on‐site. The study will assess mining and infrastructure options, including the possible re‐establishment of past mine operations, and refurbishment and potential future expansion of an existing onsite pilot processing plant, targeting a throughput of between 200‐400 tonnes per day, or approximately 75,000‐150,000 tonnes per annum. Independent global consultant RungePincockMinarco Pty Ltd (“RPM”), which has intimate knowledge of Plomosas from previous work completed with Consolidated Zinc, has been appointed to manage the study. In addition, BatteryLimits Pty Ltd will continue metallurgical testwork and develop the metallurgical and process engineering options. The work is progressing in line with the expected timetable and initial results are expected before the end of the June quarter 2017. Upon receipt of the Scoping Study, the Company anticipates being able to make a decision on re‐ starting mining operations in the 2nd half of 2017, given the reduced capital requirements and lead time, the plant refurbishment and upgrade and access to the ore.
