Managing Director's Summary

Simon Noon

"The Sorby Hills Project is the largest undeveloped, near-surface Lead-Silver-Zinc deposit in Australia and we are excited to be commencing directly to a DFS, supported by the current drilling program. Pacifico has a track record of increasing Resources, as demonstrated by our 2019-20 drilling programs which saw a significant increase to the Sorby Hills Mineral Resource Estimates that underpinned the recent Sorby Hills PFS. In addition, we are excited about the opportunity presented by the exploration of tenement E80-5317 at Eight Mile Creek. With drilling now having commenced, we look forward to updating the market with our progress and success with expanding Pacifico’s Resources."
