Dundee Precious Metals (DPM) has announced their 2nd quarter preliminary production results.
“During the quarter, we continued to deliver strong operating performance at both of our mines, and we are on-track to achieve our guidance targets for the year for gold and copper production,” said David Rae, President and Chief Executive Officer.
“Permitting activities for our Loma Larga project in Ecuador continue to progress well, and at the end of June, we achieved a key milestone with the receipt of the technical viability certificate for the filtered tailings storage facility”.
The table below shows preliminary results for the 2nd quarter of 2022:
Chelopech delivered strong performance, producing 49,200 ounces of gold and 8.8 million pounds of copper.
Ada Tepe produced approximately 23,700 ounces of gold. Gold grades are expected to increase in the fourth quarter as per the mine plan.
The Tsumeb smelter processed approximately 21,100 tonnes of complex concentrate. The results reflect unplanned 45-day shutdown due to water leaks. This was resolved during the planned Ausmelt maintenance shutdown to the off-gas and baghouse system. Operational performance is expected to improve moving forward.
Updates to permitting activities for Loma Larga are progressing. The project received the technical viability certificate for the filtered tailings storage facility last month. In order to proceed, an environmental licence is required by The Citizens Participation Process. This was temporarily postponed due to national protests last month, but will likely resume closer to the end of this month. Work related to the revised feasibility study continues as planned, while drilling activities remain suspended.
