Telson Resources Inc. has announced that it has commenced underground mining operations at its newly acquired Campo Morado Mine.
Operations have commenced within areas of the El Largo Zone, which contain higher precious metal values along with significant base metals.
In order to support the initial start-up of the sulfide floatation mill, the company plans to create a stockpile of mill feed of up to 80 000t, which is planned to commence immediately after securing operating capital. The initial processing is planned to commence at approximately 1 000t per day and will slowly be ramped up to the mill’s ultimate capacity of 2 500t per day.
Over a six-week period, Campo Morado mine site personnel have fully serviced all mobile underground and surface mining equipment. Crews have been servicing, cleaning, repairing/rehabilitating electrical motors and moving parts and equipment where necessary to ready the mine site and mineral processing plant for commencement of commercial production planned immediately after securing operating capital.
“Telson’s management team is very happy with the rapid progress we have made at Campo Morado since acquiring the project just over two months ago which has allowed us to work continually towards last week’s restart of underground mining operations.”
States Antonio Berlanga, Telson’s CEO, “With the full support of local communities, municipal and state authorities, newly formed mining union, and our mine site personnel, we are well ahead of our originally planned schedule and hope to have a large stockpile of mill throughput available to start continuous milling and the mining operations in the near future.”
