Worldwide Perilya Operations Map
Since resizing in 2008, the Broken Hill operation has significantly improved its productivity, profitability and cashflow. Current reserves from June 2012 indicate at least a 10 year mine life. The combined zinc and lead production of Broken Hill for 2012 was approximately 130,950 tonnes of combined zinc and lead with C1 cash costs of US$0.62 per pound of payable zinc.
In January 2011, Perilya successfully acquired 100% of the TSX-listed GlobeStar Mining Corporation. This acquisition gave Perilya immediate access to the low cost Cerro De Maimón copper, gold and silver mine in the Dominican Republic. Perilya has since significantly increased the mine life to in excess of 10 years. In 2012 the Cerro De Maimón mine produces 11,504 tonnes of saleable copper, 13,898 ounces of gold and 345,105 ounces of silver at a C1 cash cost of US$0.62/lb of payable copper.
