Description: The project is located 270 kilometres south-west of Kimberley, the regional capital of the Northern Cape province. Importantly, the project has access to significant local and regional infrastructure, with mine infrastructure including a regional power grid feed, bitumen access roads, access to a bulk, treated water supply and a 1 900m landing strip. Several large commercial wind and solar generation projects are operational in the surrounding area and the mine is located just 48kms from a railway siding at Groveput with an open-access railway line connecting the site to the world-class export port of Saldanha Bay.

Notes: Orion Gold has started a major new phase of drilling at its Prieska Zinc-copper project where the first two holes of the programme are designed to test mineralisation in the north-west target area. The initial drilling will also provide technical information that will allow Orion to plan and complete a drill programme.
