The ore stockpile currently stands at around 30,000 cubic metres and creates a buffer of material to ensure constant production.
“We are confident of a strong second year at West Kytlim in 2019 with mining ongoing since the first quarter and with the full scale production and washing started in the second quarter,” said chairman Christian Schaffalitzky.
“Our own team and that of our contractor are building on their experience of last year with several modifications to the circuit aimed at further increasing efficiency and metal recovery. We will publish the improved grades and recovery numbers later this year, after these improvements are confirmed over a longer term production period.”
