Baita Plai Video Footage: End to End Processing Chain


Vast Resources plc, the AIM-listed mining company, is pleased to announce the publication of new video footage taken at the Baita Plai Polymetallic Mine in Romania which is available on the Company's YouTube channel at   and on other social media channels .  The footage, recorded by Vast management during a recent trip by the senior executive team, highlights the end to end processing chain which continues to operate uninterrupted whilst Baita Plai ramps up in line with the mine upgrade plan announced in March 2021. 


The video footage shows the assessment of the new development area to Level 19 followed by stockpiled ore and ore laiden wagons waiting to be taken to the processing plant.  Filming inside the process plant shows the ore being crushed and milled and then directed through the copper and zinc flotation processes.  The filter press produces fresh concentrate and this is prepared and stored ahead of collection from Vast's offtake partner.


The recent visit by the senior executive team has reinforced the Board's confidence in the successful execution of the new mine plan together with the effective deployment of the enlarged operational team.  The operational team, focussed both underground and in the process plant, now includes a bolstered Romanian workforce spanning highly experienced mining and processing professionals and new entrants to the industry, working under the supervision and tutelage of the operational management team installed by the Company over the past three months.


The new mechanised mine plan, which requires no further funding for capex or opex, continues to progress encouragingly and the Board looks forward to providing further updates in due course.
