NQ Minerals' chairman David Lenigas speaks to Proactive London about plans to start exploration work at the Hellyer mine in Tasmania.  
 
After a 10-year hiatus, he says the company can re-start exploration with the benefit of more advanced geophysical techniques. 
 
NQ is currently producing lead and zinc concentrates (with significant gold and silver credits) by reclaiming the Hellyer mine tailings generated from the former mining operations and processing them through the Hellyer concentrator plant at the rate of over 1.2 million tonnes per annum. 
"There is now significant potential to define new and extensive high-grade mineralisation at Hellyer, one of the world's great polymetallic high-grade mines,” NQ’s chairman David Lenigas said in a statement. 
 
“We are operating in one of the most highly mineralised geological terrains in the world and we have a golden opportunity to continue Bass's work from 2012 to build-up the existing significant underground resource inventory and extend the Hellyer mine life to underpin this operation for a very long time,” he added.
