Horizon Minerals Limited: Nimbus Silver - Zinc Project Update
Commenting on the Nimbus silver-zinc project, Horizon Managing Director Mr Jon Price said:
"With silver and zinc prices showing sustained increases in recent times, the Company is now assessing all options to create value from this historically successful mining operation at Nimbus. We see significant opportunity to develop the high grades lodes at Nimbus either on a stand-alone basis or in joint venture with an expert group. There remains potential for the project to grow in scale and quality with further exploration beyond the current mineralised envelopes. Any strategic option we elect to pursue for Nimbus will take into account this growth and future development potential."
The Company has now commenced a Strategic Review of the project inclusive of a detailed assessment of all previous Feasibility Study work completed to 2017. Several expressions of interest have been received to acquire or earn-in to the project and these options will be reviewed in conjunction with an economic evaluation at current high silver and zinc prices.
