Callinex Mines (TSXV:CNX) has today announced results from an independent initial Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) on the company’s Nash Creek and Superjack zinc-lead-silver projects located in the Bathurst Mining District of New Brunswick, Canada.

As quoted in the press release:

The initial PEA outlines a 10-year, 3,900 tonne-per-day (tpd) open-pit mining operation with a dense media separation plant and 1,950 tpd conventional flotation process facility at the Nash Creek project.. The mine plan generates a strong economic return with a pre-tax internal rate of return of a 34.1 percent (25.2 percent post-tax) and a pre-tax Net Present Value at an 8 percent discount rate of CA$230 million (CA$128 million post-tax) based on pre-production capital costs of CA$168 million and a zinc price of US$1.25/lb. The company believes there is a clear opportunity to significantly enhance the project’s economics with additional exploration that allows for higher grade material to be scheduled earlier in the mine plan.
