The Broken Hill ore body is the largest base metal ore body in the world.

The Broken Hill operation provides the foundation for Perilya's growth. It is complemented by a diversified portfolio of well positioned assets.

geology and testing

Detailed modelling of the Broken Hill Southern Operations has resulted in a sophisticated geological model of the prospective structures and stratigraphy, which in turn has defined a number of large targets.

A two year program is planned to drill these targets, which each have the potential to contain 10 million tonnes of mineralisation. Drilling will be from both underground and on surface and will test targets at up to two kilometres depth.
