Miner Kagara says production has restarted at its Mt Garnet polymetallic plant following heavy rainfall in Queensland.

Miner Kagara says production has restarted at its Mt Garnet polymetallic plant following heavy rainfall in Queensland.

The news comes week after the company restarted trucking operations and trimmed its zinc production forecast from 38,000 tonnes to 30,000t.

 

The announcement is below:

 

Kagara Ltd wishes to inform the market that the Mt Garnet polymetallic plant recommenced production yesterday. Ore transport on a restricted basis commenced on Friday 20 March to allow the build up of stockpiles for the commencement of production. High grade ore from Mungana averaging 20% zinc and 2% copper will be blended with ore from Mt Garnet. The processing of this high grade blend will offset some of the delayed zinc production resulting from the recent road closures. Transport of copper ore to the Mt Garnet and Thalanga mills is continuing.

The grade of copper ore being processed through the Mt Garnet plant is over 5% which will also help recoup some of the delayed copper production in March.
