Guanajuato Silver begins storing venous material in El Cubo


Company hires MGA for contract mining

VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / Aug 6, 2021 / Guanajuato Silver Company Ltd. (the “Company” or “GSmoney“) (TSXV: GSVR) (OTCQX: GSVRF) is pleased to announce that teams have started stockpiling mineralized material from its El Cubo mine in anticipation of the resumption of operations at the El Cubo plant. In addition, the Company has signed a mining development and production agreement with the contract mining group MGA to perform contract mining services at El Cubo until December 31, 2022.

Resumption of mining in El Cubo:

GSilver is pleased to announce that the mining, mucking and storage of mineralized materials at its El Cubo mine has resumed earlier than expected. Teams have started to remove previously blasted materials from worksite areas 2175 and 1850 (Click here and scroll down for the last long section) in the mine. This material is now stored in the patio of the El Cubo Mill (Click and scroll down for photos). These areas will be two of three construction areas (the other area being “Cebolletasâ€) where GSilver intends to focus its mining efforts at El Cubo for the next 12 to 18 months.

Reasons for mining 2175, 1850 and Cebolletas Stopes (the “Villalpando Stopes”):

  • These sites are easily available with an infrastructure made up of accesses and 4x4m wide ramps;
    • Crews cleaned up these access routes, installed new lighting and ventilation services, and cleared and re-established emergency exit routes inside the mine.
  • These sites have already been drilled and sampled by the former owner / operator Endeavor Silver Corp .;
    • GSilver engineers concluded that extensive drilling and sampling has been done to date to establish blast zones of mineralized material and to begin storing this material on the surface. The Company plans to conduct additional infill and expansion drilling in these areas in the near future, details of which will be reported and described in a subsequent press release. Additional drilling will be carried out primarily for grade control purposes.
  • These are just a few of the sites where mining had already taken place before the mine closed in November 2019;
    • There are many other areas of the mine where GSilver believes it can take the same approach. The three current areas of interest exist in the main venous structure of Villalpando; other areas in which the Company plans to focus its mining operations in the months and years to come include the Dolores North, Dolores South, La Loca, San Eusebio and Asuncion vein structures.

Company engineers believe that Villalpando’s chambers could deliver up to 15,000 tonnes of mineralized material per month once mining reaches full capacity and grinding resumes in the fourth quarter of 2021.

Commitment of MGA mining contractors:

GSilver is very pleased to announce that it has signed a 17 month global contract with MGA Mine Contractors (MGA Contratista Mineras SA de CV) of Durango, Mexico, to be the Company’s primary mining contactor. MGA has over two decades of experience providing quality mining subcontracting expertise to some of the leading Mexican mining companies including Grupo Mexico, Goldcorp., Fresnillo PLC., Endeavor Silver and First Majestic Silver. .

Hernan Dorado, COO of GSilver, said: “At GSilver, we have always planned to bring in an experienced and specialized mining outsourcing group when restarting El Cubo. In this way, we can defer significant amounts of capital expenditure and draw on the experience of our subcontractors. We plan to start El Cubo operations with our “in-company†workers in parallel with our contracted MGA miners. “

Hernan Dorado Smith, Chief Operating Officer and Director of GSilver and a “Qualified Person†as defined by National Instrument 43-101, Disclosure standards for mining projects, has approved the scientific and technical information contained in this press release.
