The Best people, Projects and Clients

We’re revolutionising underground mining to be safer, more sustainable, and more rewarding.

DEVELOP creates high-performance projects that offer certainty to clients and value creation to shareholders. Our underground DNA is central to evolving the production of essential ingredients to decarbonise the world.

The JORC Compliant Resource inventory of DEVELOP’s base metals projects is 27.7Mt grading 1.3% copper, 5.9% zinc, 1.0% lead and 31.2g\t silver containing >360,000 tonnes of copper metal and >1,600,000 tonnes of zinc metal.

Sulphur Springs Project

A Western Australian project producing commercial-grade copper and zinc.

The Sulphur Springs project is located 144 km to the south east of Port Hedland and includes the Sulphur Springs and Kangaroo Caves deposits together with tenements along the 27 km Panorama Trend that contains six advanced targets that have returned intersections of commercial grade copper and zinc.

Once the Sulphur Springs project is operational the focus is to continue exploration along the Panorama Trend with a vision to develop a new mining region.

Woodlawn Project

Woodlawn is a high-grade zinc-copper-lead-gold-silver project located in the world-class Lachlan Fold belt in NSW, 250km south-west of Sydney and 40km south of Goulburn.

The Woodlawn mine operated from 1978 to 1998 and processed 13.8Mt of ore from the Woodlawn open pit, underground and minor satellite deposits. Following its closure, the project was acquired by ASX-listed Heron Resources. Heron developed the underground mine and processing plant, investing ~A$340 million in the project before it was put on care and maintenance in 2020. Heron was placed in administration in July 2021.

DEVELOP completed its acquisition of Woodlawn and the extensive tenement package in May 2022 for A$30m upfront and success driven milestone payments. The acquisition included the underground mine and the new processing plant and site infrastructure.

Pioneer Dome

Pioneer Dome Project is a highly prospective, multi-commodity project located approximately 130 km south of Kalgoorlie and 200 km north of the port of Esperance. 

The project targets the 20 km strike length of the eastern periphery of the Pioneer Dome. The project was recognised as having potential for lithium mineralisation following a review of historic exploration reports which recorded numerous pegmatite intersections in nickel or gold‐focused drilling completed since the 1960s.

Access to the project is excellent with the Goldfields Highway and Esperance railway, and water and gas pipelines passing through the Project. The project covers an area of approximately 389 km².


Whim Creek Joint Venture Project

Located 115 km to the south west of Port Hedland the Project includes the Whim Creek, Mons Cupri, Salt Creek and Evelyn deposits.

The Whim Creek JV Project includes crushing and heap leach infrastructure, offices, workshops and established water supplies, along with a regional exploration package with gold and base metal prospectivity. 67,000 tonnes of copper was produced from historic (near surface) oxide ores of the deposits.

In 2020, the Company executed an unincorporated Joint Venture with Anax Metals Limited (ASX:ANX) to acquire 80% interest in the Whim Creek Project via staged cash payments to DEVELOP and additional earn-in expenditure. DEVELOP retains a 20% interest that is free-carried through to a decision to mine.
