“At Rosario, production quarter over quarter has seen improvements as we transition from mineralized material from development to actual producing stopes at the Membrillo and Cinco Estrellas mines. In addition to this, the Veta Grande mine development has now reached Level 6, and mill recoveries have improved aiming to reach the targeted levels for silver during Q4” stated Arturo Préstamo, CEO of Santacruz adding, “The addition of Membrillo and Cinco Estrellas as feeders to the Rosario Mill has increased the gold content within our Rosario produced concentrates, while higher silver grade areas are now being accessed as the main Membrillo vein starts contributing to Rosario’s mill feed.”
