Consolidated Zinc ramps up Plomosas project

Australian company Consolidated Zinc is revising its strategy at the Plomosas zinc mine in Mexico following positive scoping study results that confirmed a 100,000-tonne-a-year project.

The company is now planning to double production to a target of 250,000 tonnes a year in 2019 over a seven to 10-year mine life, while also increasing its stake in the project from 51 per cent to 90 per cent by 2018.

Plomosas, located Chihuahua in the north of Mexico, is considered one of the world’s highest grade zinc projects with 15.9 per cent zinc and lead per 154,000 tonnes of contained metal and 968,000 tonnes in total.
