The Newman Zinc Project consists of a large tenement position approximately 60km south west of Newman in Western Australia. The project is well provisioned for infrastructure with a gas pipeline from the North West shelf and the modern town of Newman nearby.
Early in 2014 Marindi signed up to the $18M CSIRO Distal Footprints program which is designed to better understand and aid in discovery of giant ore deposits in the Capricorn Orogen to which the Newman Zinc Project belongs. Marindi has subsequently begun expanding its own tenement position in anticipation of this program.
Late in 2013 Marindi acquired the Newman Zinc Project in a Joint Venture with Prairie Mining Ltd. Marindi identified the project as a very large mineralising system capable of producing world class ore bodies far beyond the size already delineated at the Prairie Deposit and recently discovered at the Wolf Deposit. Marindi has begun mapping, drilling and geophysics to better aid its understanding and focus its forward exploration program.
