Terramin Australia Limited was incorporated in December, 1993 as Playford Resources NL with the objective of exploring and developing Australian mineral resources opportunities.
In 1997, the Company acquired the Fleurieu Project situated in Australia’s first base metals mining belt east of Adelaide. The tenements included the Angas Pb-Zn-Ag resource.
Terramin acquired the Menninnie Dam tenement in 2003 containing South Australia’s largest zinc-lead-silver deposit. Later that year the company listed on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) in a fully underwritten IPO.
In 2006, Terramin acquired a 65% interest in the world class Tala Hamza Project on the Mediterranean coast of Algeria.
July 2008 saw the commissioning of the Angas Zinc Mine at Strathalbyn in South Australia. The first shipments of zinc and lead concentrate were dispatched in the same month. In September 2013 the mine was placed into care and maintenance.
In December 2013, Terramin acquired the Bird-in-Hand Gold Project and a portfolio of highly prospective Adelaide Hills exploration tenements. The Scoping Study was completed early in the same month.
