Zinc and lead-silver concentrate production from the metallurgical plant at the Trevali Mining Corporation (TSX:TV,OTCQX:TREVF,FWB:4TI) Santander Mine in Peru has commenced.
The Crushing, Transfer, Grinding (all four mills), Flotation and Tailings circuits are all operational and undergoing commissioning and optimization (Figure 1).
Trevali Mining President and CEO Dr. Mark Cruise said:
Commencing metal concentrate production from our Santander Mine is a major achievement for Trevali. We now aim to ramp-up operations to the planned 2,000-tonne-per-day throughput. This milestone is a testament to the hard work and dedication of the Trevali – Glencore construction teams as well as our contract partners that continue to play a vital role in our success.
