Altaley ramps up quarterly production at Campo Morado
According to the company’s statement, Campo Morado produced 11.9 ktonnes of zinc concentrate and 2.7 ktonnes of lead concentrate in Q2 2021, which is 8% and 42% more than in Q1 2021, respectively.
The company said that net revenue has increased on average by 36% to total US$ 16.2 million for the Q2 2021. Average Q2 metal recoveries have increased in all metals - gold up by 50%, silver up by 23%, lead up by 18% and zinc up by 6%.
These increases have been achieved by a combination of increasing realized metal prices, and process improvements implemented by the operations team who have performed above management expectation for the quarter, the company added.
