U.S. Antimony Reports Los Juarez Production Testing


THOMPSON FALLS, MT / ACCESSWIRE / December 5, 2016 / United States Antimony Corporation (“USAC”) (NYSE MKT: UAMY) reported that production testing of the Los Juarez circuits has begun.

The alkaline leach plant in Mexico has been installed, tested, and recoveries are now being verified. Approximately 19.8 metric tons of concentrates from previous milling will be processed during December and the beginning of 2017. Answers to questions from our original application for the cyanide permit to leach the mill tailings have been submitted to SEMARNAT, and the permit is being vigorously pursued. Previously mined mill feed from a 19,000 metric ton stockpile at the Los Juarez property will be hauled to the mill in Guanajuato. The flotation mill will be started during Q1 2017. Mining at greater depths in the pits and in close proximity will commence. USAC will continue operating while the cyanide circuit is added in stages using internally generated cash flows.
