New Century Resources Company Overview

New Century Resources (ASX:NCZ) is an Australian base metal producer operating the Century Mine in Queensland with the aim of becoming one of the world’s top 10 zinc producers.

New Century acquired the Century Mine when it ceased production in 2016 and has executed an economic rehabilitation plan comprised of upgrading the mine’s existing world-class infrastructure. This rehabilitation was completed in August 2018 when the mine successfully entered production.

New Century Resources is initially focusing on the existing ore reserves to produce zinc in the lowest cost quartile globally.  Substantial mineral resources exist on the mining leases which will provide a significant opportunity for mine life extension and metal production increases from the mine’s operations.

Best Shares Thoughts

Issues have dampened the sentiment in this stock and it seems a lot of holders have lost faith. Recovery rates have been under the expected levels but management are confident this is being addressed and we should see an increase. Overall zinc metal output increased by 12% during the June quarter, and if the company can get cash flow positive, funding shortfalls will be put to bed and we should see a strong improvement in the share price.
