QUEBEC, QUEBEC–(Marketwired – April 15, 2016) – The Nampala mine (from the company Robex Resources Inc. (“Robex” and / or “the Company”) (TSX VENTURE:RBX)(FRANKFURT:RB4) treated an estimated tonnage of 55,000 tonnes of ore during the month of March 2016 (from March 1st to March 31th 2016 inclusively). This exceeds the preliminary goals by about 35%. During this month, the average production was close to 1,800 tonnes / day with an availability rate of 80% at the mine which operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The recovery rate was consistent with the objectives of the startup phase.
The construction of the mine is currently in its final phase with the objective of achieving processing capacity of 4,000 tonnes a day. The gas oil central, the power plant and two (2) additional CIL tanks (to bring the total to six) are entering into the commissioning phase (startup) in the upcoming days. The Zadra type elution system is at the end of the assembly process and will allow the recovery of the gold that was stored in the carbon during the period. The installation of the larger mill, the cyclones tower and additional water supply circuit are also in the final phase of installation; and are scheduled for startup in May 2016. Finally, all civil work is completed.
Soutex confirmed that according to data from the mine scale and analytical data from SGS laboratory in Bamako, a total of about 1,200 oz of gold were extracted from the ore by leaching. The Zadra type elution system is not operational yet, so two-thirds of the 1,200 oz have been accumulated in the carbon for treatment later and the balance recovered in bullion.
A second feed bin is also planned to be added. This second feed bin will increase the mine production capacity above the initial objectives and secure the availability of the ore supply at all times.
