Company Overview

Terramin Australia Limited is an ASX- listed base and precious metal development company with advanced zinc and gold projects in Algeria and South Australia.
Terramin is advancing approvals for both the Tala Hamza zinc project in Algeria and the Bird-in- Hand gold project in South Australia.

Terramin has completed a Definitive Feasibility Study (DFS) on Tala Hamza and is waiting for feedback from the Algerian government before proceeding with the project. Tala Hamza is one of the largest undeveloped zinc and lead mines in the world and an important part of future supply geared towards meeting projected increases in global zinc demand next decade.
Terramin is also nearing the final stages of its Mining Lease Application for the high grade Bird-in-
Hand Project gold project in South Australia.

Projects Overview

Tala Hamza is one of the largest undeveloped zinc & lead mines in the world and an important part of future supply geared towards meeting projected increases in global zinc demand in the next decade

  • World class resource containing 3.5 million tonnes of zinc and lead
  • Global resource of 0 million tonnes at 6.6% zinc plus lead
  • Joint venture with Algerian government owned entity (65% Terramin)
  • Infrastructure available including deep water port and international airport
  • Low operating cost due to availability of low cost power and fuel
  • Young educated workforce available

Bird-in-Hand Gold Project is situated on the site of the historic Bird-in-Hand gold mine, located 2.7km from Woodside in the Adelaide Hills, 30km east of South Australia’s capital city, Adelaide and 35km north of Terramin’s existing Angas Zinc Mine (Angas) at Strathalbyn.

  • Low Capex
    • Low pre-production capital cost
    • Existing processing plant with license tailings storage facility
    • Existing infrastructure corridor
  • Low Costs Quartile
    • High grade deposit
    • Existing skilled workforce in regional South Australia
    • Access to reliable energy sources
  • Simple Processing
    • Tailings storage facility has capacity for current Bird in Hand Resource
    • Existing flotation technology with add-on capability
    • Option to add gravity circuit for coarse gold
  • Exploration
    • Bird in Hand is open at depth with opportunity to grow
    • Regional opportunities based around central processing hub
    • Proximity to workforce, services and infrastructure

Evolution of the project

  • Terramin has completed two Feasibility Studies on Tala Hamza, the second DFS focused on a smaller selective mining optimised case
  • Underhand Drift and Fill as a mining method allows for selective mining in deposits with poor ground conditions
  • Reduction in surface infrastructure and location of all assets in one valley substantially reduced pre-production capex
  • Trade-off in lower capex with higher operating costs
  • Opportunities remain to be explored to increase mining efficiencies during front end design and optimisation processes

Expansion of Tala Hamza

The Tala Hamza Deposit remains open in multiple areas. Optimisation studies after the grant of the Mining Lease will look at future options for secondary access to the deposit, increasing throughput rates, maintaining mine life and potentially support expansion of the processing plant.

  • Tala Hamza mineralisation is open to the south and east
  • Historic eastern most holes only intersected the upper lode
  • WMZ drillhole TH039, eastern most hole to intercept the deeper lode
  • TH039 intercepted from 381m, 4m @ 5.6% PbZn
  • includes 413m, 5m @ 48% PbZn
  • and from 436m 1m @ 11.48% PbZn




Exploration Upside

Bird in Hand Gold Project has significant exploration upside – deposit open at depth and historic mines highlight the potential along strike. Current Bird in Hand Resource stands at 252,000 ounces.

Project Highlights

  • Mineral Resource of 588kt at 13.3g/t for 252koz
  • Capacity with existing processing plant and tailings dam
  • Scoping study under independent review for planned release Q4 2018
  • Finalising Mining Lease Submission
  • MAR re-injection test work
  • Upcoming drill program for infill and extension
