“We are very pleased to have recently completed both commissioning of the Main Shaft and electrical system upgrades, two important steps towards achieving nameplate production. The remaining step, ventilation upgrades, is progressing well, and we remain on target for steady state production of 5,000 tons per day in Q3 this year,” stated Mike Ciricillo, Chief Executive Officer of Nevada Copper. “With the underground project expected to be ramped-up to full production in Q3, we look forward to advancing our other key growth opportunities, including our fully permitted Open Pit and property exploration targets.”
