Flying Doctor

New South Wales, 100 per cent ownership, zinc, lead, silver

Flying Doctor has potential for an open cut operation that could provide a fourth source of ore to the Broken Hill concentrator

Flying Doctor is located approximately two kilometres to the north west of Potosi in close proximity to the existing Broken Hill mine infrastructure.

A drilling program completed in 2007 nearly doubled the inferred resource to 520,000 tonnes at 5.4 per cent zinc, 7.1 per cent lead, and 72 grams of silver per tonne.

looking forward

The feasibility of an open pit operation in the latter part of FY2008 is being evaluated.

The high lead content close to surface is attractive at current lead prices and further work will target shallow strike extensions.
