Location: Oltre il Cole, Lombardy Region, Italy
Project Type: Brownfield Mine Redevelopment
Company: Vedra Metals Srl
The Gorno project is an advanced stage brownfields mine re-development with well-defined zinc, lead and silver mineralised resources located in the Lombardy region of northern Italy. The project has a rich legacy of historic mining activity which provides significant existing infrastructure.

The primary project aim is to extract and process the rich ore to meet the growing demand for high-grade, clean zinc and lead concentrates for delivery to smelters and offtake customers in Europe.
Established infrastructure & logistics with well developed UG and surface access.
Targeting a de-risked development decision leveraging off existing technical studies.
Supportive local communities and regulators in an industrialised area with extractive industries nearby.
