According to the company, the mining contractor mobilized with production commencing on 19 September, 2018 and by month end production was in line with the initial schedule of 100 tonnes per day.

Consolidated Zinc (ASX:CZL) has released an update on mine commissioning activities at its Plomosas zinc-lead-silver mine in Mexico, following its first shipment of ore from Plomosas site last month for delivery to the Santa Eulalia concentrator for processing.

According to the press release, the mining contractor mobilized with production commencing on 19 September, 2018 and by month end production was in line with the initial schedule of 100 tonnes per day. 1,245 tonnes of ore were mined by 30 September, 2018 of which 256 tonnes were hauled to surface for shipment off site to Santa Eulalia. 989 tonnes ore remains stockpiled underground awaiting transport offsite including 256 tonnes of lower grade material derived from ore development which will be blended into the high grade shipments.

CEO of Consolidated Zinc, Brad Marwood said:

“Since the 20 September shipment, the Plomosas operating team has continued to perform safely while delivering production and development in line with expectations. Production haulage to the surface has been challenging with a “zig zag” in the decline however, we are taking steps to remove this restriction and increase our production once this bypass is complete.”
