The first shipment of 5500 wet metric tonnes of zinc concentrate from Red River Resources’ Thalanga mine in north Queensland has been loaded at the Port of Townsville, bound for the Port of Lianyungang in China.

Zinc and lead concentrates from Thalanga are sold under an offtake agreement to Trafigura.

The company has also completed its first delivery of copper concentrate under its offtake agreement with Glencore International A.G, which takes the concentrate at the Thalanga mine gate.

The first shipment of zinc concentrate and first delivery of copper concentrate follow the successful commissioning and ramp up of the Thalanga zinc project, which began production in September 2017.
