New underground lead/zinc/silver mine in Broken Hill to start next year

The Rasp underground mine in the heart of one of Australia’ most historic mining centres —  Broken Hill’s Line of Lode — should be operating by April next year.

Development of the Rasp mine on Central Mining Lease 7 is in one of the most intensely worked areas between the Perilya Ltd North and South mining leases and it had a stop-start scenario with the big stall being when the zinc price crashed in during the global financial crisis.
