Company info

North River Resources Plc ("North River") is a mineral exploration and development company active in Namibia and Mozambique with headquarters in London. The Company is focused on reopening its flagship asset, the Namib Lead & Zinc Mine near Swakopmund in Namibia and is targeting commencement of production in the near term. The company was recently granted its Mining Licence from the Namibian Ministry of Mines & Energy.

The Namib Project has a JORC compliant underground Mineral Resource of 1.12m tonnes grading 6.6% Zn, 2.3% Pb and 46 g/t Ag. In addition, the old tailings dump contains a JORC resource of 610k tonnes grading 2.1% Zn. The original 2014 feasibility study has recently been updated, following several optimisation studies including metallurgical testwork, process plant designs and underground mine development.

The proposed new development program highlights the extraction of 885kt ore containing 6.5% Zn, 2.4% Pb and 47g/t Ag over an 8 year mine life.

Key Points:

  • Advanced lead, zinc and silver project in Namibia offers high-value production potential in the short-term

  • JORC compliant copper resources have been reported at two of its exploration projects
  • Excellent support infrastructure and services exist in Namibia
