Century Zinc mine restarting


Australia’s Century Zinc mine, the world’s third-largest prior to its closure in 2016, will restart production in the second half of 2018 with capacity of 264,000 tonnes per year of zinc, according to a feasibility study released by owner New Century Resources.

The mine in Queensland, Australia, will resume output based on the reprocessing of tailings at the site. The mine is forecast to produce 507,000 tpy of zinc concentrates with 52% zinc content over an initial 6.3-year mine life.
