This project comprises intermediate to high-grade zinc silicate deposits suitable for direct shipping (currently to smelters in Asia). The total resource for the entire project is 972 000 t at 29.8% Zn and 21% Pb (Perilya Limited 2007 Concise Annual Report p. 13).
Mining operations were completed at the Beltana Mine in late January 2008, ahead of schedule and under budget. Production for the short campaign totalled 316 400 t of zinc silicate producing 101 385 t of contained zinc, a much higher volume than initially proposed as a suitable market was found for lower grade ore. Two shipments to Chinese customers occurred in late 2007.
