 Trevali Mining Corporation (TSX:TV,OTCQX:TREVF,FWB:4TI) provided an update on its Santander Mine, located in Peru. Processing plant commissioning, and zinc and lead-silver concentrate production continues to progress well.

As quoted in the press release:

During the month of September the Santander operations team has steadily increased both mill throughput and head-grades to the point that both are currently at the processing plant’s nameplate 2,000-tonne-per-day design capacity.

Metallurgical recovery has also significantly increased during the month as the processing plant operators continue to familiarize themselves with the plant and mine feed characteristics.

As part of the commissioning process, tonnages have been increased from approximately 1,500-1,600 tonnes-per-day to full nameplate 2,000 tonnes per day during the month. Mineral feed head-grades have also steadily increased towards design capacity and averaged 5.3% zinc, 1.6% lead and 1.7 oz/t silver from September 17th to month end.

Trevali Mining Corporation President and CEO, Mark Cruise, said:

We are extremely pleased with the rapid progress being achieved at the Santander mill commissioning and ramp-up. With nameplate capacity already achieved, our operations team will continue to further improve mill performance and metal recoveries.
