Aeris Resources is an established copper mining and exploration company listed on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX: AIS).


The Tritton Copper Operations located near the town of Nyngan in central New South Wales is operated by Tritton Resources Pty Ltd, a 100 per cent owned subsidiary of Aeris Resources Limited.

There are two active underground mines, Tritton Underground Mine (Tritton) and Murrawombie Underground Mine (Murrawombie). The combined ore production from both mines is treated at the Tritton ore processing plant, which has a processing capacity of up to 1.8 million tonnes per annum, depending on the hardness of the ore.

There are four additional mine projects scheduled for future production, which together with Tritton and Murrawombie form the current Life of Mine plan (LOM). These projects will supplement and then replace production from Tritton and Murrawombie as the latter are exhausted.

Brownfields exploration at the Tritton deposit has identified a number of opportunities to extend the life of the operation, including extensions to the orebody.  Importantly, both the Tritton and Murrawombie deposits remain open at depth.   Aeris is confident that drilling will grow these known deposits and that mine life will progressively extend. Exploration success in finding new deposits in this highly prospective region could increase production rates and/or increase the life of the operation.
