Project Overview

The Rocklands Copper Project, located 110 km east of Mount Isa in northwest Queensland, has two mineralized bodies: Rocklands South and Las Minerale. Las Minerale has an aggregate length of copper mineralization of approximately 10 km. The project includes conventional open pit mining, onsite benefication plant, tailings storage facilities, waste rock facilities, surface water diversion, and site access.

Project Role
