Aquila Norte Mineral Processing Plant
Peruvian Metals owns an 80% interest in the Aguila Norte Process Plant that is strategically located just off the Pan American highway, near Peru’s 2nd largest city, Trujillo, in northern Peru. Abundant small-scale mining activity occurs in northern Peru but there are very few independent processing facilities available. The Aguila Norte mineral processing plant hosts crushing, milling, gravity separation and flotation circuits with an initial throughput capacity of 100 tonnes per day. Currently Peruvian Metals is processing third party polymetallic Pb-Zn-Ag material through the plant to deliver high-value concentrates for its customers. The Company intends to purchase polymetallic and precious metal mineral to process at the Aguila Norte plant for sale of the mineral concentrates to the Peruvian metal trading market.
