Aeris Resources is an established copper mining and exploration company listed on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX: AIS).

Tritton Copper Operations

There are four additional mine projects scheduled for future production, which together with Tritton and Murrawombie form the current Life of Mine plan (LOM). These projects will supplement and then replace production from Tritton and Murrawombie as the latter are exhausted.

Brownfields exploration at the Tritton deposit has identified a number of opportunities to extend the life of the operation, including extensions to the current Mineral Resource.  Importantly, both the Tritton and Murrawombie deposits remain open at depth.

Aeris is confident that drilling will grow these known deposits and that mine life will progressively extend. Exploration success in finding new deposits in this highly prospective region could increase production rates and/or increase the life of the operation.

Tritton Underground Mine
The Tritton deposit is a large, (over 20 million tonne), copper dominant sulphide system, discovered in the mid 1990s via geophysical methods.

Mining of the Tritton orebody commenced in 2004 with the development of an access decline and construction of a sulphide ore processing plant. Copper is extracted via conventional crushing and flotation circuits producing a copper concentrate. Stope production commenced in March 2005. In its first year of production, Tritton produced 23,088 tonnes of copper in concentrate.

Tritton reached 10 years of production in 2015 with significant Mineral Resource remaining. As at 30 June 2019, the combined Measured, Indicated and Inferred Tritton Mineral Resource Estimate is 9 million tonne at 1.3% Cu for 120 thousand tonne of copper metal.  Find out more

The Tritton Underground Mine successfully transitioned to a new mine design in response to a change in orebody geometry, with changes to stope extraction sequence on the lower levels to eliminate pillar stopes.

Additional upgrades to the ventilation circuit  were completed in 2017 to sustain ore production at more than a million tonnes per annum.  This investment, together with  changes to the mining sequence have set Tritton up for stable stope production in coming years as mining extends at depth.

Aeris is committed to continued investigation and investment into mining equipment and technology.  Some recent examples have included a significant upgrade of the tele-remote loader operation system allowing loading operations to be conducted from the surface control room, and bogging ore from the stopes to be continued during blast clearance and shift changes.
