Orion is pleased to announce that it has successfully completed an 85,424m infill and extension drilling program at its Prieska Zinc-Copper Project (Prieska Project), located in the Areachap Belt in South Africa's Northern Cape Province.



The infill drilling program was primarily designed to increase sample density for the Deep Sulphide Mineral Resource, with the objective of upgrading the Inferred Resource reported previously (refer ASX release 9 April 2018) as the foundation for the ongoing Bankable Feasibility Study (BFS) due for completion early next year.



With as many as 18 surface diamond drill rigs in operation on the project at the peak of the program, Orion is pleased to announce that, with more than 475,000 hours spent on the project since May 2017, only one lost time injury was reported which was fully investigated, and the appropriate remedial action taken.



The drilling program consisted of 41 mother holes and 61 deflections (wedge holes) for a total of 85,424m drilled, with the objective of upgrading the confidence level in the current Deep Sulphide Inferred Resource of 27.8 Mt grading 3.92% Zn and 1.22% Cu on the Repli Prospecting Right (Repli) and Vardocube Prospecting Right (Vardocube) (Figure 1) (refer ASX release of 9 April 2018).



As part of the ongoing BFS, the 2017 - 2018 drill program was designed to twin and infill historical drilling to achieve an average 60m intersection spacing. The program was successful in confirming excellent continuity of the massive sulphide zinc-copper mineralisation while also identifying areas where the Resource remains open down-dip and along strike with potential to add significantly to the current Resource.



All core samples were submitted to ALS Chemex Laboratories in Johannesburg for analysis. The Deep Sulphide Mineral Resource (refer ASX releases 8 February 2018 and 9 April 2018) will be updated once all assay results are returned and quality control performance criteria satisfied. The Mineral Resource update is expected to be completed by mid-December 2018.

OrionMin provided an update on ongoing exploration at the Rok Optel Ni-Cu-Co-PGE target on the Namaqua and Disawell mineral rights (Disawell) in the Areachap Belt, South Africa. Assay and whole rock geochemical results have been received for OROD001 and interpreted together with detailed core logging and follow up down-hole geophysics. The integrated results confirm the conduit setting of mineralisation and have identified better targets for massive sulphide discovery.



The pdf version of the announcement is available on the Company's website, www.orionminerals.com.au.



- Initial drilling confirms presence of high tenor polymetallic sulphide mineralisation within two zones of a complex multiphase mafic conduit-style intrusion.

- Massive sulphide veinlets occurring in swarms attain a maximum of 1-2% by volume in the wide swarm intersections drilled in the first hole.

- Base metals within the better mineralised sulphide zones attain maximum tenors of 15% Ni and 4% Cu indicating that the target massive sulphide may be of premium quality.

- Follow up down-hole electro-magnetic surveys detect conductors typical of bulk massive sulphide bodies, presenting high priority drill targets for immediate follow-up.

OrionMin provided an update on ongoing exploration at the Rok Optel Ni-Cu target on the Namaqua and Disawell mineral rights (Disawell) in the Areachap Belt, South Africa. Fixed Loop Time-Domain Electro-Magnetic (FLTDEM) surveys and geological mapping over helicopter-borne Electro-Magnetic anomalies at the Disawell Prospects commenced in May 2018 (refer ASX release 1 February 2018). Diamond drilling commenced in July 2018 targeting high grade, magmatic sulphide Ni-Cu-Co-PGE mineralisation.



Drill hole OROD001 (refer ASX release 30 July 2018) intersected a succession of sulphide bearing mafic to ultramafic intrusive rocks, over a down-hole width of 186.86m. Most importantly, the sulphide mineralisation includes syn-magmatic injection veins and stringers of massive sulphide comprising pyrrhotite, chalcopyrite and pentlandite. The hole was completed at 412.06m.



An additional FLTDEM grid (ROK4) has now been completed to the north of grid ROK1 to test the extension of the conductive zone and better define the anomaly for drilling. Plate models have orientation consistent with the intrusion morphology as currently understood from the available drill hole and surface mapping data. The plate models at ROK 4 have conductance of up to 9400S and are consistently approximately 100m x 300m in area. The intimate associations and consistent plunge of the target indicate that this anomaly is likely to be an extension of the mineralisation drilled in OROD001 (target plate conductances of 1250 to 2900S), with interpreted increasing sulphide content toward the north. A second diamond drill hole, OROD002, was started on 4 August 2018 to test the high conductance target.



In parallel with drilling at OROD002, drill core processing, sampling and analysis of OROD001 is continuing and fieldwork is underway to augment the historic surface mapping. All information is being integrated to enable construction of a three-dimensional intrusion model to enable optimal drill targeting. The Rok Optel intrusion remains open at its northern, southern, and western margins.

Orion (the company) shared the latest results on detailed inspections completed on the main hoisting shaft (Hutchings Shaft) at the Prieska Zinc-Copper Project (Prieska Project). The Prieska Project is in the Northern Cape province of South Africa approximately 290km south-west of the city of Kimberley. Prieska Copper Mine operated as an underground zinc and copper mine, exploiting the Copperton deposit, between 1971 and 1991. Orion intends to establish new mining operations to continue the extraction of the remaining Copperton deposit, a volcanogenic massive sulphide ? style (VMS) deposit, with significant residual potential.



?Figures" referred to throughout this announcement can be viewed on the pdf version of the announcement, available on the company's website, www.orionminerals.com.au.



Detailed visual and mechanical inspections of the Hutchings Shaft barrel and steelwork, from the surface down to a depth of 380m, have confirmed that the shaft steelwork and wall integrity have been well preserved. This makes the option of refurbishing the existing shaft for future use a realistic and viable option to be considered in ongoing bankable feasibility studies.



A large volume of engineering data has now been collected for assessment and is being used to formulate and cost the detailed shaft refurbishment plan. This is a significant step towards de-risking the mine re-establishment project.



The shaft inspections are being conducted as part of the ongoing mine feasibility and environmental studies at the Prieska Project. Mine feasibility and environmental studies were commenced in July 2017, with the appointment of lead consultants, DRA Projects SA Pty Ltd for mining studies and ABS Africa Pty Ltd for environmental studies.

OrionMin advised that the secondary listing of its fully paid ordinary shares (Shares) on the Main Board of the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE), commenced on the JSE at 9:00 a.m. South African time (5:00 p.m. Melbourne time) on Monday 18 September 2017.



The JSE listing is consistent with OrionMin?s strategy of engaging South African capital markets in the funding strategy of the Prieska Zinc-Copper Project (Prieska Project). The ability to access South Africa?s large parastatal banks and funds, which are captive within South Africa due to South African Exchange Control restrictions, is expected to significantly increase funding options for OrionMin.



The JSE listing has the additional benefits of:

- providing an accessible market in OrionMin Shares for South African investors, thus increasing domestic ownership whilst aligning interests with foreign Investors;

- allowing OrionMin to market itself and raise its profile in South Africa, thereby providing OrionMin with better access to South African institutions and to capitalise on funds that are locked within South Africa?s borders due to South African Exchange Control restrictions;

- providing opportunities for South African State Owned Entities to invest in the Prieska Project;

- focussing the attention of potential South African investors on the merits of investing in OrionMin, thereby helping to enlarge the potential investor pool for the Company and over time improve the liquidity and marketability of OrionMin Shares;

- allowing the possibility of OrionMin using its JSE-listed shares to make project acquisitions through non-cash scrip settlements listed on the JSE that would otherwise be precluded due to South African Exchange Control restrictions; and

- adding further momentum to OrionMin?s base metal development strategy in South Africa.



OrionMin?s secondary listing of its Shares is in the ?Gold Mining? sector, under the abbreviated name ?OrionMinMIN?, JSE share code ?ORN? and ISIN ?AU000000ORN1?.



OrionMin?s primary listing will remain on the ASX and the Company will continue to be regulated by the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC). Non-South African shareholders will be able to freely transfer their Shares between the exchanges for trading and all proceeds will be able to be freely remitted to source.
