PPX resumes Callanquitas mine ops after rainfall

PPX Mining Corp. said June 12 that it is resuming operations at Callanquitas, part of the Igor gold-silver project in Peru after rains subsided.

The access road between the mine and the Malin Plant of Silver Cascas SAC, where the company processes its bulk samples, have reopened to small vehicle traffic.

However, additional road repairs will be required to allow the passage of large capacity trucks to connect Callanquitas to the regional road network.

These repairs have commenced and are expected to be completed within the next two weeks.

In addition, during the temporary shutdown, the company has reviewed the bulk sampling and test mining program, outlining a new mine plan to utilize more efficient extraction methods to reduce cost per tonne for the mined material.

The company will now be able to achieve a bulk-sampling rate of 150 tonnes per day by the end of calendar-year 2017 and anticipates increasing the mining rate to 350 tonnes per day by mid-2018 in order to prepare the mine for commercial production in future.
