Peru is the sixth largest producer of gold in the world and the Peruvian government estimates the small-scale mining sector accounts for a significant portion of all Peruvian gold production, estimated to be valued at approximately $3 billion in U.S. funds annually, according to Inca One Gold.
Inca One Gold Corp. purchases its minerals from government registered small-scale mining producers from various regions and processes it at its Chala One and Kori One milling facilities located in Arequipa, in southern Peru.
Inca One Gold recently announced consolidated gold production for September 2018 from its Chala One Plant (Chala One) and its recently acquired Koricancha Plant (Kori One).
All comparative production numbers relate only to Chala One.
Gold production reached 3,032 ounces as compared to 889 ounces in September 2017, an increase of 241 percent year-over-year and an increase of 100 percent from the prior month of August 2018 at 1,513 ounces.
The two processing plants combined processed 5,976 metric tonnes of gold-bearing material, an increase of 304 percent year over year and an increase of 89 percent from August 2018’s 3,170 metric tonnes.
Inca One Gold’s president and CEO, Edward Kelly, said, “We are extremely pleased to report, for the first time, the consolidated production numbers from our two processing plants. These figures will provide a new baseline for comparative purposes as we begin to scale our business. The synergies of having two highly optimized and integrated plants situated close to each other have already allowed for substantial efficiencies and cost savings. We have immediately doubled our output, are operating at a robust 200 TPD [metric tonnes per day] and have excess capacity of an additional 250 TPD [metric tonnes per day] available to us. This should translate to significant and continued positive cash flows as we scale up over the next few quarters.”
