Underground contractor Pybar Mining Services is heading up Red River Resources’ (RRR) expansion near Charters Towers.
The activity is focused on the Far West deposit and covers a period of seven years.
Pybar Mining Services (Pybar) is an Australian-based and owned underground mining contractor.
Development has started with the completion of the first Far West decline and the first ore for production is expected early next year.
The Thalanga Operation in north Queensland is RRR’s key asset.
RRR commenced copper, lead and zinc concentrate production at the Thalanga Operation in September 2017.
RVR was focused on maximising returns from the operation by increasing plant throughput and extending mine life through increasing mineral resources and ore reserves at deposits currently in the mine plan and by continuing to aggressively explore a growing pipeline of high quality targets within the surrounding area, said Managing Director Mel Palachian.
