"We have completed a review of the project and now have much greater confidence in being able to enlarge the size of the estimated pit,” said chief executive Colin Bird.

“Furthermore, we believe that there now exists considerable potential for other zinc mineralisation types in the deposit and we will aggressively pursue this concept. On completion of this programme and its assessment, we will design a drill programme aimed at confirming the current resource estimate and testing the project's prognosis for an enlarged resource.
