About PPX Mining Corp:
PPX Mining Corp. (TSX.V:PPX.V, SSE:PPX, BVL:PPX) is a Canadian mining company with assets in northern Peru. Igor, the Company’s 100%-owned flagship gold-silver project, is located in the prolific northern Peru gold belt in eastern La Libertad Department. PPX is operating the Callanquitas mine (“Mina Callanquitas”) which exploits high grade oxidized gold and silver mineable underground. Based on the Company’s Pre-Feasibility Study (“PFS”), PPX expects the Callanquitas Mine to produce up to 26,000 AuEq* ounces per year over a seven-year mine life at a cash cost of less than US$610/AuEq* ounce (the Igor PFS is available on the Company’s website and SEDAR). Rising metal prices and mine productivity, along with superior milling contracts, have contributed to increased revenue from operations at Mina Callanquitas. It should be noted that the decision to commence mining operations at Mina Callanquitas is based solely on the aforementioned PFS, not on a feasibility study. As such, there is greater uncertainty as to the specific economic outcome of the project and a similar increase in the technical risk of failure associated with a production decision based solely on the PFS.
*AuEq is calculated as follows: ounces AuEq = ounces Au + ounces Ag/75. By PFS, including metallurgical recovery.
Through the second fiscal quarter of 2022, the Callanquitas Mine has produced over 174,099 tonnes of ore grading 9.65 gpt gold and 97.5 gpt silver, resulting in the production of 53,519 ounces of gold. and 500,525 ounces of silver from the Mineral Reserves and Measured and Indicated Resources at Mina Callanquitas as defined in the Igor PFS. The mine is currently producing at a rate of approximately 134 tonnes per day and ore is processed at nearby pay-milling facilities.
