Overview 

Ore mined and processed have now reached circa 100,000 tonnes of ore per month, all of which has been extracted from Zone III with Zone II yet to come into production. Tonnes processed in the third quarter of 2021 were up 5.9% on that achieved in the second quarter of 2021, whilst a marginal fall in the zinc head grade has resulted in zinc metal in concentrate production in line with the second quarter of 2021.

 

Chairman Mladen Ninkov commented: "The third quarter operating results continue the wonderful production results from the second quarter. I am particularly delighted with the normalised throughput averaging over 100,000 tonnes per month in the quarter for the first time at the Caijiaying Mine. This bodes extraordinarily well for next year once the Chinese New Year celebrations, the Winter Olympic Games and the Para Olympic Games conclude at the end of the first quarter of 2022. Nevertheless, we remain cautious for the remainder of 2021 in light of a possible restriction of all mining and processing activities, including Caijiaying, in the lead up to the Winter Olympic games."
