Australia’s 5 Most Valuable Mineral Exports

Australia’s economy is largely based on its natural resources, with the minerals sector making the greatest contribution to the nation’s exports.

Newcrest Mining Limited – Exploration Update 10 June 2021

Highlights

  • At Red Chris, drilling continues to expand the higher grade mineralisation intersected at East Ridge and in the Main Zone:
    • At East Ridge, the new discovery adjacent to the East Zone, drilling continues to expand the footprint of the higher grade mineralisation with RC688 returning 344m @ 0.70g/t Au & 0.75% Cu from 776m, incl. 170m @ 1.1g/t Au & 1.1% Cu from 892m. This hole is 100m east of the discovery hole RC678 (previously reported).
    • East Ridge is located 300m east of East Zone and outside of Newcrest's Red Chris Mineral Resource Estimate. Drilling to define the extent of the higher grade mineralisation is ongoing.
    • In the Main Zone, drilling has intersected high grade mineralisation with RC683 returning 300m @ 0.41g/t Au & 0.51% Cu from 260m, incl. 114m @ 0.67g/t Au & 0.85% Cu from 390m, incl. 22m @ 1.1g/t Au & 1.4% Cu from 464m. This hole is 100m east of RC679 (previously reported).
