Trevali Mining (TSX:TV,OTCQX:TREVF,FWB:4TI) reported that all critical mill and processing infrastructure is now in place and underground development continues to progress well with 1.8 kilometres of ramp completed to date at the Santander mine. An approximate 100,000 tonnes of mineralized material averaging 5.6% zinc, 0.65% lead and 1.65 oz/t silver has been stockpiled on surface for processing upon commissioning of the 2,000 tonne-per-day plant. The Company also announced the appointment of Mr. Steve Stakiw as Vice President, Investor Relations and Corporate Communications.
As quoted in the press release:
All critical plant buildings are completed – Flotation, Filter Areas, Concentrate Sheds, Milling and Crushing modules, Zn and Pb Thickeners and Closed Industrial Water circuits. The various Mills (Primary through to Re-grind) and flotation cells are all installed. Ongoing construction is presently focusing on finishing the Tailings Management Facility, Coarse and Fine Mineral Stock-pile areas, E-Houses and the Reagent Unit. Piping and Electrical work is ongoing and is making progress.
Underground development has confirmed the presence of several zones of potentially significant footwall satellite mineralization that will require additional drilling at a later date and contingent on results may provide additional mill-feed.
