SAN GONZALO DEVELOPMENT
The decline from level 2 to level 3 has advanced 275 metres to date, and a total of 155 metres remain to go until the level 3 elevation of 2215 metres is reached. Productivity has increased approximately 3 fold when the recently purchased 5yd scoop was put into service. It is expected this productivity will increase further once the Company Jumbo has been completely reconditioned and put into use. A smaller 3yd scoop for the smaller crosscuts and drifts has been sourced and arrangements are in the works for its purchase. These equipment acquisitions will replace the contractor’s low availability equipment.
