Azure Gets Green Light For Oposura Trial Mining

The Australia-headquartered miner confirmed both trial mining and toll treatment processing from its wholly owned project will start in the September quarter.

Initial production and processing rates will range between 1,500t and 3,000t per month, assuming grading of about 15% and combined zinc and lead ore processing. The high-grade mineralisation will be processed on a toll treatment basis through a nearby sulphide flotation processing facility.

Azure officials said there is scope to increase the mine's production rate if additional processing capacity becomes available.
