Darlot Regional Hub

Red 5’s exploration strategy at Darlot is aimed at establishing the project as a stand-alone mining and processing hub, with a five to ten-year mine life assuming no ongoing contribution of trucked ore from King of the Hills.

To deliver on this goal, the Company has three workstreams underway to extend the mine life at Darlot.

Underground and surface drilling programs to extend the Darlot Mineral Resource

  • Extending existing Resources, including identifying mineable remnants
  • Step-out underground exploration using existing HiSeis 3D seismic data
  • Resource extension drilling underway
    • 22,500m of UG drilling in FY 2021
    • Surface drilling primarily focused on the Great Western, Mission and Cable, Ockerburry and Mt Zephyr target areas to further delineate the extent of the mineralised systems
