    Iguana prospect

    The Iguana prospect, located within Lady Ida Project Area, is situated approximately 55km south of the Davyhurst Processing Plant. Historical open pit mining operations spanning back 30 years have focussed on the Iguana, Lizard and Blue Tongue deposits.

    This is a large deposit that has the potential to deliver higher grade ore to our 1.2mtpa Davyhurst processing plant”

    Management Comments

    Ora Banda CEO Peter Nicholson said: “The strong initial drilling results indicate that our development plans for the Iguana deposit are on the right track. This is a large deposit that has the potential to deliver higher grade ore to our 1.2mtpa Davyhurst processing plant. We have more work scheduled at Iguana and remain excited to see what the next round of drilling delivers to allow us to move forward with assessing the potential for material mine life extension via this deposit.”
