The MRE is reported in accordance with the Australasian Code for Reporting of Exploration Results, Mineral Resources and Ore Reserves (JORC Code 2012 edition). The Altair MRE is reported using a Zn equivalent (ZnEq%) cut-off grade (Table A). The MRE is 7.0 Mt @ 1.8% Zn, 0.5% Cu, 5.0g/t Ag (2.9% ZnEq) at a 2.0% ZnEq cut-off for 200,000 ZnEq tonnes (130,000t Zn, 30,000t Cu, 1.1Moz Ag). The Altair deposit location is displayed in Figure 1, with plans, sections and 3D diagrams presented in Figures 2 to 9. Final assay results from initial RC and follow-up diamond drilling at Altair have been received and have been incorporated into the Altair MRE.
