FLINDERS ZINC PROJECT
Mining - Earthworks/Civil Engineering (Stockpile Management) project In The Far North Council Area of Resource - Zinc type. A resource of 966 000 tpmmes at 31% zinc, containing almost 300 000 tonnes of zinc metal, has been estimated for the Flinders project and additional resources are expected from ongoing work. The project is a small scale mining operation involving the winning of ore using open cut mining methods. Topsoil and vegetation will be removed from areas of working and stockpiled for later use in restoration/rehabilitation activities. Ore block definition (grade control) will be carried out using a reverse circulation drill rig. Blasting of ore and waste will be reuqired from the surface to the base of pit. Material will be loaded and hauled from the pit using hydraulic excavators and dump trucks. Overburden and waste rock will be deposited in a waste rock dump, and ore grade rock will be transported to the pre-crushed ore stockpile at the Beltana Mine. The ore will be transported to Port Pirie for shipping to overseas markets. Site rehabilitation will be carried out on completion of mining and ore transport. This will include the grading windrows back over tracks or cleared areas, the reshaping and re profiling of the waste rock dump, covering the disturbed areas with available topsoil and re-establishing vegetation. The site will be fenced as a barrier to fauna and for public safety. Click for more details...
