Tasmania has a remarkable geological diversity and abundance of rich and high-grade mineral deposits that are easily accessible and close to transport and infrastructure.
With supportive legislation for exploration and development, there remain many untapped opportunities for exploration, extraction and downstream processing of our mineral resources.
Through its mining regulation and exploration division, Mineral Resources Tasmania, the Tasmanian Government is proactively encouraging investment from companies who recognise the importance of sustainable, wealth generating opportunities in mining and mineral processing.
Corona Minerals – The Queenstown Project (Copper-gold-silver)
- The Queenstown Project offers the opportunity to invest in an exciting project in a world-class mineral province where, as Corona’s work has demonstrated, there are still significant new discoveries to be made.
King Island Scheelite – The Dolphin Project (Tungsten trioxide)
- The proposed redevelopment envisages open-cut ore extraction over an eight year period. Thereafter, it is envisaged that the former underground mine at Dolphin will be redeveloped. In production, the Dolphin Project is scheduled to produce a significant proportion of current global supply.
Maydena Sands Project – Eastern Quarry (Silica flour, silica sand and silica rock)
- The primary objective of this project is to develop a quarrying and processing operation to supply high purity silica material for export to the global glass industry.
Silica Downstream Processing Opportunities
- Tasmania has the key components required for the establishment of a modern silicon metal manufacturing industry, such as a high-grade industrial silica resource, a clean, renewable energy base, and suitable site locations in close proximity to necessary infrastructure.
Stellar Resources - The Heemskirk Tin Project
- Stellar Resources flagship project, Heemskirk Tin, is the highest grade undeveloped tin project in Australia, with excellent potential for resource expansion. Stellar Resources’ objective is to establish Heemskirk as Australia’s second largest tin producer by 2019.
Tin Downstream Processing Opportunities
- Tasmania has the key components required for the establishment of a modern tin metal manufacturing industry, such as a large tin deposits, production capacity, limestone and coal resources, a clean, renewable energy base, and suitable site locations in close proximity to necessary infrastructure.
Venture Minerals - Mount Lindsay, Livingstone and Riley (Tin, tungsten and magnetite)
- The Mount Lindsay deposit is one of the largest undeveloped tin deposits in the world. Mine life is projected to be at least 10 years, with significant areas yet to be explored.
