QMines Limited (ASX:QML) is an Australian based copper and gold exploration and development company. The Company’s flagship project, Mt Chalmers, is located near Rockhampton in Queensland.

Mt Chalmers (100%) is a high-grade historic mine that produced 1.2Mt @ 3.6g/t Au, 2.0% Cu and 19g/t Ag between 1898-1982. Mt Chalmers has a Measured, Indicated and Inferred Resource of 11.86Mt @ 1.22% CuEq for 144,700t CuEq.

QMines recently executed an agreement to acquire 100% of the high-grade Develin Creek copper-zinc project which lies approximately 90km Northwest of Mt Chalmers. Develin Creek has an Indicated and Inferred resource of 4.9Mt @ 1.97% CuEq for 87,200t CuEq.

The combination of the two projects creates sufficient scale to commence a Pre-Feasibility Study assessing the potential for a stand-alone mining operation. Whilst compiling the PFS, due 1H-2024, the Company is continuing an aggressive exploration program providing shareholders with significant leverage to a growing Resource and exploration success.
