Meridian Mining S.E. (TSX V: MNO) (“Meridian” or the “Company”), today announced first quarter 2017 production and sales from its manganese project in Espigão and provided an update on its Bom Futuro tin joint venture. Both projects are located in the state of Rondônia, in northwestern Brazil.
As quoted in the press release:
“We continue to make progress on a range of initiatives at each of our Rondônia-based projects,” said Anthony Julien, President and CEO of Meridian. “The completion of the pilot plant will not only expand our production capacity to 50,000tpa, but it will also give us the ability to treat and beneficiate primary vein material so we can verify the metallurgy and advance our understanding of the operational model at Espigão. In parallel, we continue to advance our exploration activities at Bom Futuro looking at both the nearer-term potential of the tailings, which we hope to multiply as we further understand the opportunities in and around the Bom Futuro mine and the Non-Explored area in the 18,000 hectare tenement package surrounding the mine.”
