This high-grade zinc-silver-lead-gold project, with a recent maiden JORC 2012 Resource of 9.1Mt grading 12.9% ZnEq has attracted Sandfire Resources to our register.

White Rock also owns the Mt Carrington gold-silver project in New South Wales, Australia. This project is underpinned by a JORC Resource containing over 340,000 ounces of gold and 23 million ounces of silver, and with a maiden Ore Reserve. The resources are situated in seven surface deposits and located on granted Mining Leases with developed infrastructure. White Rock is planning to progress its Definitive Feasibility Study and permitting.
