- Copper Growth Strategy launched to develop advanced stage copper-gold (cobalt) projects and focus on new mineral discoveries in the Curnamona Copper Belt.
- Portia high grade drilling results, including 10m at 8.62g/t in PTAC492, confirm and extend Portia pit floor gold mineralisation.

- Portia plant throughput increased by -11 % in the quarter, making it the third quarter in a row with improved throughput.
- Rights issue raised -$1.5 million and a further - $1.4 million from placement of shortfall to date.
The foundation for the Copper Growth Strategy is a rising copper (and cobalt) price, substantial copper resources, low sovereign risk and highly prospective terrain in north eastern South Australia with a combined JORC resource inventory of over 1.4 million tonnes of copper (3.6 million ounces of gold and 8.2 million kilograms of cobalt).
The experience gained by Havilah throughout the permitting and mining process at Portia will greatly enhance the likelihood of lowering the risk and increasing the probability of success in advancing the projects in the Copper Growth Strategy.
