Trevali Mining Corp. (TSX:TV) is a zinc-focused base metals mining company with active operations in Peru and New Brunswick, Canada.
In Peru, Trevali has commenced production at its 2,000 tonne-per-day Santander zinc-lead-silver mine. The three carbonate-hosted replacement deposits being mined at Santander (Magistral North, Central and South) are situated in the Central Peruvian Polymetallic Belt, a major zinc producing district. The mine produces zinc and lead-silver concentrates. Based on the current indicated resource of 6,264,000 tonnes and the inferred resource of 13,845,000 tonnes, in addition to the significant exploration potential on the large property package, it is anticipated that operations could have the potential to be expanded to approximately 4,000 tonnes-per-day by mid-to-late decade subject to additional technical studies.
In Canada, Trevali has successfully consolidated the prolific Bathurst Mining Camp and has 100% ownership of the Caribou mine and mill, the Halfmile mine and the Stratmat polymetallic deposit in northern New Brunswick. All three deposits remain open for expansion. The restart of mining and milling operations at Trevali’s 3,000-tonne-per-day Caribou Mill Complex is underway with planned commissioning scheduled for early 2015. The Company also undertook trial mining from its Halfmile underground mine where it produced zinc, lead-silver and copper-gold concentrates from approximately 125,000 tonnes of mineral processed through the Brunswick 12 mill prior to its closure in 2013.
