Consolidated Tin Mines (CSD, the Company) was established in July 2007 and listed on the ASX in February 2008.
The Company was established as a tin exploration and development company, which initially focused on the Company’s tin bearing Mount Garnet Project in Far North Queensland.
CSD commenced tin recovery/metallurgy & resource definition drilling in 2008, reported a major JORC Resource Update in June 2013, and released the highly positive pre-feasibility study in September 2013.
In April 2016, the Company transitioned into a base metals producer by acquiring the active Surveyor Project, Mount Garnet Mine, and the Mount Garnet Processing Plant assets from Snow Peak Mining Pty Ltd (SPM) – ACN 161 212 504.
The operation consists of a processing plant and other associated infrastructure at Mount Garnet, which allows a central location and improved project efficiencies.
CSD is now expanding operations across other mining sites and building a strong pipeline of key exploration tenures. The Company’s strategic vision is to become a major diversified mining company.
Throughout 2017 and 2018, the Company recommenced processing operations at the Mount Garnet Processing Plant by continuing mining operations at the Mount Garnet Mine and Surveyor Projects.
The Company also completed and extensive drilling and exploration program at the Einasleigh Regional Exploration Project as well as near mine targets at the existing base metals Projects. This drilling program culminated in:
- the discovery of the Mount Garnet Deeps Deposit and the subsequent development of the Mount Garnet Deeps Underground Mine;
- the release of the updated Einasleigh Chloe & Jackson Project resource estimates in June 2018;
- the release of the updated Einasleigh Kaiser Bill Project resource estimate in July 2018; and
- the discovery of the Lens 2 Upper resource at the Balcooma deposit located within the Surveyor Project.
