TORONTO, ONTARIO–(Marketwired – June 8, 2016) – Torex Gold Resources Inc. (the “Company” or “Torex”) (TSX:TXG) announced updates on operations and geological model reconciliation at its El Limon-Guajes Mine (ELG) in southwest Mexico.
Fred Stanford, President & CEO of Torex stated: “The team on site continues to deliver excellent safety and environmental performance, and to exceed production expectations. In May they routinely operated the processing plant at design throughput levels and produced 29,995 ounces of gold, or 1,000 ounces per day. The Guajes deposit has also exceeded the expectations of the geological model, in both grade and tonnes. We have now processed over one million tonnes through the plant and can compare what the plant received against what was predicted by assays from blast-hole samples, and from there relate through to the geological model. In summary, since the plant was ‘bedded down’ at the end of February, when data became reliable, the plant has received 12% more gold ounces than was predicted by the geological model. Of this 12% increase in gold ounces, ’10’ came from increased grade, and ‘2’ came from increased tonnage. Skarns are known to be variable and there is no reason to expect that this one will be any different; however, it is encouraging to note that as we work deeper into the Guajes deposit the positive reconciliation has strengthened. In conclusion, a big “thank you” to all Torex/MML teams, for their consistent performance in turning intentions into reality.”
