New Century Resources (ASX: NCZ): Operating the Century Zinc Mine in Queensland, Australia, Becoming One of the World’s Top 10 Zinc Producers; Interview with Patrick Walta, Managing Director
by Dr. Allen Alper, PhD Economic Geology and Petrology, Columbia University, NYC, USA


New Century Resources (ASX: NCZ) is operating the Century Zinc Mine in Queensland, Australia, with the aim of becoming one of the world’s top 10 zinc producers. After the rehabilitation process that upgraded the mine’s existing world-class infrastructure, it successfully entered production in August 2018, with the goal of producing zinc in the lowest cost quartile globally, initially with the existing vast tailings resource on the mine site. We learned from Patrick Walta, Managing Director of New Century Resources, that during their third full quarter of operations they produced nearly 21,000 tons of zinc metal, placing them in the top 25 of all operating zinc mines in the world. The Company currently has half of the plant online, with the goal of bringing on the rest of the plant over the next 12 months, doubling its capacity and, ultimately, re-establishing Century as a top 10 zinc producer. According to Mr. Walta, the key differentiator for the Century Zinc Mine is its competitive operation cost of 56 cents a pound, because reclaiming the existing stockpile largely eliminates most mining costs. The Company plans to develop and bring into production the significant amount of undeveloped resources on the mine lease, to increase the life of mine, which is currently 7 years.
