TORONTO, ONTARIO–(Marketwired – Feb. 25, 2016) – Torex Gold Resources Inc. (the “Company” or “Torex”) (TSX:TXG) announced today an update on the operations ramp-up of the ELG Mine in Mexico.
Fred Stanford, President & CEO of Torex stated: “The ramp up of the processing plant is tracking nicely ahead of plan, costs remain on budget, security and safety performance has been excellent, relationships with local communities continue to be productive, and the construction of production support facilities is drawing to a close. The next three milestones will be the declaration of commercial production, the resettlement of the El Limon village, and the commissioning of the El Limon Crusher / RopeCon. All of these milestones are on schedule for achievement in Q2 2016.” He added, “I would like to commend the site leaders and their teams for their commitment to protecting the environment, and providing a secure and safe work environment. Of particular note, and something that is rarely achieved on a large construction project, is the safety performance of over 6 million hours worked since the last lost time injury. Well done, thank you, and I look forward to continued success.”
