Telson Commences Tahuehueto Pre-Production Toll Milling Campaign
Vancouver, British Columbia - TheNewswire - August 16, 2019 - Telson Mining Corp. ("Telson" or the "Company" (TSXV:TSN) (OTC:SOHFF) (Frankfurt:TSGN) (formerly SQ82)) is pleased to announce that ore shipments from its flagship Tahuehueto Gold Mine under construction are underway for delivery to the Atocha Toll Mill for processing scheduled to begin early next week.
Approximately 5,000 tonnes of Tahuehueto ore at a cut-off grade of 8 g/t AuEq will be available for processing on this current campaign. Mill processing is expected to be completed within two weeks and the produced lead and zinc concentrates sold immediately under the Company's offtake agreement with Trafigura Mexico.
Tahuehueto's previous toll milling campaigns have achieved consistent excellent recoveries of gold, silver, copper, lead and zinc producing excellent quality lead and zinc concentrates. Proceeds realized from the sale of the resultant concentrates have helped fund the construction of the Tahuehueto mine, now advanced to approximately 70% of completion.
- Average recoveries achieved during 2018 toll milling were,
- 81.4% gold, 85.0% silver, 86.8% lead, 74.1% zinc and 78.5% copper.
- Average produced concentrate grades during 2018 were,
- lead concentrate 46.09% lead, 3.65% copper, 79.23 g/t gold, 996 g/t silver,
- zinc concentrate 44.87% zinc, 1.40g/t gold, 409g/t silver
Telson plans to continue its toll milling pre-production throughout the remainder of 2019 by shipping high-grade ore obtained during its ongoing underground development program to the Atocha Toll Mill. Upon completion of the current campaign the Company anticipate the next subsequent campaign to be delivered and ready for processing mid-September 2019.
