TABLE 1: Q2 2022 OPERATIONAL HIGHLIGHTS
|Average Plant Throughput||tpd||12,350|
|Average Underground Ore Mined||tpd||1,580|
|Average Open Pit Ore Mined||tpd||10,850|
Torex plans to release its second quarter financial and operational results after market close on Wednesday, August 3, 2022, followed the next morning by a conference call. Gold grades mined, gold grades processed, and gold recoveries will be reported with the quarterly results.
Jody Kuzenko, President & CEO of Torex, stated:
“We had another strong quarter operationally during Q2 with gold production of 123,180 ounces. The better-than-expected result was driven by higher grades from the ELG Open Pits and record ore production from the ELG Underground. During the quarter, the ELG Underground achieved an average mining rate of 1,580 tonnes per day, surpassing the prior record of 1,430 tonnes per day achieved in Q2 2021. Plant performance was consistent, with relatively steady throughput at modestly higher recoveries quarter-over-quarter, in line with expectations as mining in the Guajes open pit transitions away from an area of lower recovery ore.
“As we capped off this solid quarter of production, our team surpassed 10 million hours worked without a lost time injury, the second time our employees and contractors have achieved this impressive milestone since 2020. With the last lost time injury occurring in April 2021, the Company exited the quarter with a lost time injury frequency of zero over the trailing 12 months. We know the strong culture of safety we have built over the years is reflected in our consistent operational performance, and we plan on enhancing this culture even further as we bring Media Luna into production.
“At Media Luna, construction is well underway with long-lead procurement and earthworks on schedule. Development of the Guajes Tunnel has now advanced more than 2,100 metres, with rates averaging 6.7 metres per day in June, improving from the previous record of 6.4 metres per day set in May. Advance rates in South Portal Lower have also improved following challenging ground conditions encountered earlier in the year, with the tunnel now advanced more than 700 metres. Overall, the project is well on track.
“Our Q2 production results demonstrate that our excellence in safety and operational discipline continues – both key to the reliable and consistent results that people have come to expect of Torex – and we look forward to more of the same in the second half of 2022.”
