An updated estimate increased resources for the Chloe and Jackson deposits of Consolidated Tin Mines Ltd.'s polymetallic Einasleigh property in Queensland, Australia.
The deposits now host indicated and inferred resources of 8 million tonnes grading 3.93% zinc, 1.52% lead, 0.18% copper and 35.6 g/t of silver for 314,900 tonnes of zinc, 121,700 tonnes of lead, 14,200 tonnes of copper and 9.2 million ounces of silver.
Consolidated Tin previously estimated Chloe and Jackson to host 3 million tonnes grading 5.3% zinc, 2.0% lead, 0.2% copper and 53 g/t of silver for 158,000 tonnes of zinc, 61,000 tonnes of lead, 7,000 tonnes of copper and 5.2 million ounces of silver.
Resources were quoted above a 1% zinc cutoff, and the updated estimate includes drilling completed in 2017, the company said in a June 18 release.
Consolidated Tin also said drilling is underway at the Kaiser Bill prospect within Einasleigh and plans to place a drill rig at Chloe and Jackson in the coming months.
