Additionally, the Company processed 6,838 tonnes of material in surpassing its prior record of 6,581 tonnes. Both plants processed a combined 221 tonnes per day (“tpd”) in August 2021. This represents a 4% increase from the prior highest months daily average output of 212 tpd and a 97% increase over last month's processing. Fueling these records was the high volume of mineral supplies to both processing facilities.
“We are excited to see the continuing and increasing volumes of high-quality mineral being sourced and delivered to both plants, which led directly to our record deliveries, processing and best-ever August gold production,” stated Edward Kelly, President and CEO of Inca One. “It validates our business model and operational aptitude that we were able to so quickly and effectively deploy the working capital received from our second Gold Prepayment Facility received in the first week of August from OCIM Precious Metals (August 9, 2021, press release). The Company, now armed with sufficient working capital, its only 10% off its record processing pace set in 2018 and has a goal of achieving a new production record for calendar 2021, as we come into the traditionally busier final few months of the year.”
