[TOP STORY] Orion Minerals secures option on new copper project outside Springbok

04 February 2021

““Whenever I check with Peter Major, he’ll always tell me that there are thousands of mines dotted around South Africa which are not mined out, but are closed up and not working. This is what this new project you’re looking for at Springbok is. In a sense, this is an easier process. You know there’s copper there. You’ll go and do some geological work to get the details and the like, but there was mining happening and those all bodies in many cases are giants and that makes it easier for you. This is not just starting from scratch. You’ve kind of got a roadmap. And, in fact, you’re saying you’ve got the geological reports from when the mine was actually mining back in the 1980s and the 1990s.”
