Red River’s Operations
Far West is the main source of ore for the Thalanga Mill until Red River brings the Liontown deposit online.
Thalanga consists of a 650ktpa capacity milling facility which produces separate copper, lead and zinc concentrates.Thalanga employs approximately 160 employees and contractors on a local residential basis and the majority of the workforce resides in Charters Towers.
Power at Thalanga is supplied by a 66kV connection to the Queensland power grid. The site water requirements are supplied from on site water storages and recycling water used in the processing plant. Thalanga also sources additional water from a bore field.
Red River is currently developing Liontown as Red River’s third mine at Thalanga. Liontown will be an open pit / UG mine with a conceptual mine life of 10+ years. The Liontown Mineral Resource is 4.1Mt @ 0.6% Cu, 1.9% Pb, 5.9% Zn, 1.1 g/t Au & 29 g/t Ag (12.7% Zn Eq.). Red River has increased the Liontown Project Mineral Resource by 115% since acquisition, with the discovery of Liontown East and the completion of a drilling program in 2019. The deposit is open at depth and strike with significant potential for further Mineral Resource increases.
