We have made tremendous progress towards the completion of construction at the Santana gold project since activities were allowed to restart around the middle of last year following the widespread Covid-19 shutdowns. Major civil works are now drawing to an end and the focus has shifted towards the final placement of field connections required for fluid handling systems involved in the leach process. The overall project site is quickly taking shape with the plant, remaining buildings and storage facilities all beginning their final construction and installation phases over the coming month. In parallel, our mining group continues to finalize start-up optimization plans for the Nicho and Nicho Norte open pits.” stated Darren Koningen, CEO of Minera Alamos. “We would like to take this opportunity to thank our contractors and team in Mexico for the excellent progress in building the Santana operation at a time where so many logistical challenges presented themselves. As construction activities draw to a close at Santana the project’s development is a testament to their hard work and commitment.”
