Drilling commences at Woodlawn mine

Heron Resources has begun drilling at its Woodlawn Zinc-Copper Project, 30 km south of Goulburn in NSW.

After successfully completing the Woodlawn Feasibility Study, the 2500m diamond drilling program will be targeting northern extensions to the known massive sulphide lens system.

The drilling program will use down-hole EM geophysical surveying to assist with targeting follow-up drilling after finishing the first hole.

Woodlawn had been shut down in 1998 when its previous owner went into administration, reopening with TriAusMin – which later merged with Heron in 2014.

The mine has the ability to produce approximately 150,000 tonnes of zinc, copper, and lead each year for up to 21 years.
