Projects

Heron through merger with TriAusMin, effective August 5th 2014, will now advance the Woodlawn Zinc-Copper Project, through high grade resource expansion and supporting studies for a combined Woodlawn Underground and Woodlawn Retreatment projects. Heron is well placed to fund through to BFS.

Current Development focus

  • Fast track Woodlawn BFS and a development decision. PEA is complete (released June 2015). Feasibility Study (FS) complete, confirming project viability with compelling commercial case for development. An expedited program launched to secure project funding and bring project online to meet global zinc supply shortfall. Read announcement »

Exploration focus

  • Heron continues to maintain and explore a strategic, 620 km² tenement package over the prospective Silurian volcanic rocks around the Woodlawn Mine. The exploration strategy is to focus on known mineralisation with comparable metallurgy to Woodlawn and within proximal trucking distance of the proposed Woodlawn concentrator. Targeted satellite production feed grades and other economic parameters will look to displace tailings reprocessing as the plant feed. A number of excellent targets exist.
  • In and near mine Woodlawn exploration projects Cowley Hills, Currawang, Hayshed and Cullarin are all prospective for VMS style mineralisation.
Project Locations

Woodlawn Zinc-Copper Development Project

The Woodlawn Zinc-Copper Development Project is based at the former Woodlawn Mine site located 30 km south of Goulburn and 220 km southwest of Sydney, and comprises two significant poly-metallic resource-based assets; the Woodlawn Underground Project and the Woodlawn Tailings Retreatment Project.

Woodlawn Regional Exploration Projects

Heron continues to maintain and explore a strategic, 620 km² tenement package over the prospective Silurian volcanic rocks around the Woodlawn Mine. The exploration strategy is to focus on known mineralisation with comparable metallurgy to Woodlawn and within proximal trucking distance of the proposed Woodlawn concentrator. Targeted satellite production feed grades and other economic parameters will look to displace tailings reprocessing as the plant feed. A number of excellent targets exist.

Other NSW

Following the Ardea Resources Ltd (Ardea) spin-off and beyond the Woodlawn tenure, Heron retains a free-carried high quality tenement holding in the Lachlan Fold Belt of NSW. This tenure is held through joint venture and other free-carried residual or royalty interests which results in minimal costs to Heron.

WA Exploration

Following the Ardea Resources Ltd (Ardea) spin-off, Heron retains a free-carried high quality tenement holding in the Eastern Goldfields of Western Australia. This tenure is held through joint venture and other free-carried residual or royalty interests which results in minimal costs to Heron. Please see the latest quarterly report for a full list of tenements.
