About PPX Mining Corp:
PPX Mining Corp. (TSX.V: PPX.V, SSE: PPX, BVL: PPX) is a Canada-based mining company with assets in northern Peru. Igor, the company’s 100%-owned flagship gold and silver project, is located in Peru’s prolific gold belt in eastern La Libertad department. PPX operates the Callanquitas mine (“Mina Callanquitas”) which mines underground mineable high-grade oxidized gold and silver ore. Based on the Company’s Pre-Feasibility Study (“PFS”), PPX expects the Callanquitas mine to produce up to 26,000 ounces AuEq* per year over a seven-year mine life at a cost disbursed less than 610 USD/ounce AuEq* (the Igor PFS is available on the Company’s website and on SEDAR). Higher metal prices and mine productivity, combined with superior toll milling contracts, all contributed to the increase in revenue from operations at Mina Callanquitas. It should be noted that the decision to commence mining operations at Mina Callanquitas is based solely on the PFS referenced above, and not on a feasibility study. As such, there is increased uncertainty about the specific economic outcome of the project and a similar increase in the technical risk of failure associated with a production decision based solely on PFS.
*AuEq is calculated as follows: ounces AuEq = ounces Au + ounces Ag/75. By PFS, including metallurgical recovery.
Through the second quarter of fiscal 2022, Mina Callanquitas produced over 174,099 tonnes of ore grading 9.65 gpt gold and 97.5 gpt silver, resulting in the production of 53,519 ounces of ore. gold and 500,525 ounces of silver from Mina Callanquitas’ mineral reserves and measured and indicated resources as defined. in Igor’s PSF. The mine is currently producing at a rate of approximately 134 tonnes/day, with the ore processed at nearby toll processing facilities.
