Zincore’s Accha Zinc Oxide District (“AZOD”) Project is contained within the Company’s 100%-owned, 50,000-plus hectare AZOD land package. It is located near prolific mining operations and benefits from extensive infrastructure. At the AZOD project, the Company is pursuing a district strategy with a single pyrometallurgical facility (the “Waelz kiln”) to process zinc and lead oxide ores from multiple deposits to produce a zinc-lead oxide concentrate or “fume”.
A recent Pre-Feasibility Study considered two production scenarios for the AZOD project. A “Base” case would see the zinc-lead oxide fume produced at site transported to a Company-run electrowinning facility at a port city and further refined to produce super high-grade (“SHG”) zinc ingot and lead sulphate as final products for sale. An alternative scenario, the “Fume” case, envisioned marketing the zinc-lead oxide fume produced at site to third-party refiners.
Reserves calculated for the PFS are located at two AZOD project locations, the Accha deposit in the north and the Yanque deposit in the southwest and are contained within a larger Resource base. In addition, zinc-lead mineralization has been identified at twenty-one other AZOD locations.
