(TSXV : PER / US : DUVNF ) (“Peruvian Metals” or the “Company”) is pleased to provide an update regarding the mineral processing at its 80% owned fully permitted Aguila Norte Processing Plant (“Aguila Norte” or the “Plant”) located in Northern Peru.
During the month of July, Peruvian Metals processed 2,840 metric tonnes (“mt”) of material for third parties. This amount exceeds the previous monthly record of 2,771 tonnes in May 2019. As of July 30, the Plant has processed 14,370 tonnes in 2021 exceeding total tonnes processed in 2020 of 13,185 tonnes. The Company expects a record year for 2021 and is on track to exceed 2019’s total processing record of 18,510 tonnes.
Jeffrey Reeder, CEO of Peruvian Metals, comments: “The Company’s Aguila Norte processing facility is achieving consistent throughput for 2021. Our clients are pleased with the quality concentrates being produced. The Company is continuing discussions with small miners to process and/or purchase batches of mineral and is reviewing new opportunities and sources of mineral. The Company has also acquired by application several new areas near active sources of mineral. Our Company is in a unique position to start reviewing our new properties with the cash flow being generated from the Plant.”
Aguila Norte has an environmental permit (“IGAC”) from the Peruvian government which provides the Plant with the ability to expand operations past the current 100 mt per day level. With the steady processing of third-party mineral, the Company is continuing to improve our balance sheet and is in negotiations to purchase long-term sources of mineral.
