Avino Silver & Gold Mines Ltd. (ASM: TSX/NYSE American/GV6: FSE; “Avino” or “the Company”) is pleased to announce that it has commissioned Mill Circuit 4, which involves ramp-up, testing, tuning and that the mill is operating consistent with Management’s expectations. Following the completion of the milling, flotation and thickening components, Mill Circuit 4’s 1,000 tonne per day ball mill, turned over on February 26, 2018, for its initial test. The charged ball mill start-up went very well with only minor issues with the lube system which were resolved quickly. Commissioning of the complete circuit resumed on May 19, 2018, with the introduction of mill feed, followed by testing of the classification, flotation, thickening and filtering components. The commissioning of these portions of the circuit went well, with only minor issues
with the flotation blower that were also resolved quickly. The focus has now shifted to continuing to ramp up throughput to nameplate capacity while optimizing recovery in the circuit.
