WIM Resource – Think Ahead, Move Ahead
WIM Resource Pty Ltd (WIM) is an emerging major producer of Zircon, Rare Earths & Ilmenite. WIM has an extensive resource portfolio across four different projects – comprising a cumulative resource inventory of around 1 Billion Tonnes of ore.
WIM's flagship Avonbank Mineral Sands Project is at an advanced stage of development, with a DFS & Approvals pathway well advanced. WIM plans to bring the project into production by 2023, subject to final approvals & finance.
The Avonbank Project has Proven & Probable Reserves that underpin a mine life of 30 years, a low strip ratio & high Zircon content. The recent successful completion of a Demonstration Plant & Test Pit – has provided a robust foundation for the project to be developed.
AVONBANK - WORLD CLASS ZIRCON PROJECT
Commencing in April 2019 WIM excavated a test pit, and a large bulk sample of ore for processing through an on-site Wet Concentration Plant.
The Avonbank Demonstration Plant is a sign of the commitment and intent of WIM to bring the Avonbank Project on line, co-incident with an expected decrease in global Zircon supply. The Demo Plant has now been completed and the test pit will be monitored for several months before rehabilitation.
The project has a Total Ore Reserve of 311.8 Million Tonnes @ 4.3% THM (JORC 2012,Proven & Probable), a high Zircon & rare earth content.
