The Company plans to deliver 100 tonnes per day to the Santa Eulalia concentrator for the rest of this month for processing.
Consolidated Zinc (ASX:CZL) has announced that the first shipment of ore left its high-grade Plomosas zinc-lead-silver project in Mexico on 20 September 2018. First revenues are expected in October-November.
The company said it plans to deliver 100 tonnes per day to the Santa Eulalia concentrator for the rest of this month for processing. Thereafter the Plomosas mine will scale up operations in order to deliver feed to the concentrator at or above 10,000 tonnes per month within nine months.
CEO of Consolidated Zinc, Brad Marwood said:
“We are very pleased that our Mexican team established mining operations on-time, under budget and in a safe manner. There is great potential at Plomosas and this cashflow from early production has created the financial means to begin unlocking that potential”.
