As quoted in the press release:
San Gonzalo Mine
On October 1st, Avino began processing high grade San Gonzalo material using the 250 tonne per day (“TPD”) circuit at the Avino milling complex.
Avino is pleased to report it has received the environmental permit to allow the Company to restart underground operations and run the 1,000 tpd circuit in the mill. The permit has conditions to which the Company will comply and is valid for 13 years.
Construction of the water treatment plant has been completed and water testing has commenced with the goal of increasing the pH to meet agricultural standards. Once the water has been treated it will be pumped to the El Caricol dam on the property and used for milling as well as for irrigation of local farms.
Avino has commissioned an independent engineering firm to assemble a new property wide technical report that will include new resources estimate for San Gonzalo and Elena Tolosa. At the time of this release, Avino had provided the engineering firm with all of the relevant data to proceed with the report.
