INCA ONE GOLD REPORTS 91% INCREASE IN YOY GOLD PRODUCTION
Inca One Gold Corp.'s mineral purchases in February, March and April, 2017, increased more than 117 per cent, while mineral processing increased 88 per cent compared with the same three-month period in 2016.
February, March and April are the height of the rainy season in Peru. Typically flash floods and landslides temporarily disrupt mining activity, causing transportation delays and a sharp drop in production. Particularly harsh torrential rains in Peru this year made international headlines, damaging the national economy. In light of the state-of-emergency flooding in Peru over the three-month period, the company still achieved an average throughput of 57 tonnes per day, an increase of 88 per cent over the same three-month period in 2016, while gold production at Inca One's Chala One plant reached 2,290 ounces, an increase of 91 per cent from the comparable February, March and April, 2016, period.
"Despite the unusual weather challenges, mineral buying and production increased early in 2017," confirmed Inca One president and chief executive officer Edward Kelly. "In fact, we reached all-time company highs for these months compared with rainy seasons in previous years."
The company expects that mineral supply and gold production for Chala One will accelerate as the rainy season has ended, resulting in higher levels of production for the remaining months of 2017.
The company will no longer be pursuing the private placement announced on April 6, 2017.
