Red River Resources has reported a record quarter for copper at its Thalanga operation in North Queensland.
The bumper result stemmed from an increase in copper grade in the ore milled (to 1.0 per cent copper) and a record copper recovery to copper concentrate of 84.7 per cent.
The company achieved a record quarterly production of 2697 tonnes of high-quality copper concentrate.
At the same time it produced 4310 tonnes of high-quality zinc concentrate and 1133 tonnes of high-quality lead concentrate.
Red River also processed a parcel of historical gold-rich tailings from its Liontown project during the quarter.
This produced approximately 600 tonnes of gold concentrate containing 1300oz of gold on an unreconciled basis.
