PYBAR announces new project at the Lady Loretta decline project in North Queensland.
Pybar has recently been notified that we are the preferred contractor for Xstrata Zinc’s new Lady Loretta decline project in North Queensland.
This new Project is scheduled to commence in early September with mobilisation to site late August. This is a 2 year project and involves nearly 7km of development over this period.
The Lady Loretta mine, which is located approximately 140 kilometres northwest of Xstrata’s Mount Isa operations, is planned to be operational by the end of 2013. Resources currently stand at 13.7 million tonnes grading 17% zinc and 6% lead and the project will produce zinc-lead concentrate through the Mt Isa processing facilities over a 10 year mine life.
Pybar’s initial scope for the project Involves:
- Site establishment of offices, workshops, and stores areas
- Portal establishment
- Decline development
- Lateral development
PYBAR is looking forward to the challenge of starting a new project with Xstrata Zinc as a new client, with a safe, professional and productive start.
