1 Mine in Construction & the Other in Commercial Production
Telson Mining has one mine in pre-production and under construction and a second in commercial production.
Telson Mining Corporation is a Canadian based junior resource mining company with two Mexican gold, silver and base metal mining projects. The Company announced that on May 15, 2018 its Campo Morado mine located in Guerrero, Mexico had begun commercial production a full 3 months ahead of schedule. The goal at Campo Morado is to increase throughput at the mill toward 2,500 tonnes per day during early 2019. Telson’s Tahuehueto Project, located in north-western Durango State, Mexico is currently in pre-production at approximately 200 tonnes per day utilizing a toll mill for processing and has entered a construction phase with a timeline to be producing on site in its own mineral processing plant capable of milling at least 1,000 tonnes per day near the end of Q1 2019.
Tahuehueto lies within the prolific Sierra Madre mineral belt, which hosts a series of historic and producing mines and most of Mexico’s active exploration and development projects. The project is situated approximately 100 kilometers southwest of silver mines in the Guanacevi region and about 25 kilometers north of the silver mines at Topia.
Consisting of 28 mining concessions grouped into five non-contiguous blocks that total approximately 7,492 hectares the Tahuehueto is in an advanced stage of development with mine construction plan during 2017 and targeting commercial production within the first quarter of 2018. Telson Mining Corporation owns 100% of the project through a 99.9% share ownership in its Mexican subsidiary company.
Campo Morado is an underground multi-metal mine with infrastructure, installations and equipment capable of processing 2,500 tonnes of ore per day. To the end of 2014 there has been 3,036 exploration diamond drill holes totalling 577,155 metres identifying at least 7 mineralized zones, containing approximately 14.7 million tons of measured and indicated resources grading 3.76% zinc, 0.88% copper, 0.81% lead, 106 g/t Ag and 1.34 g/t Au plus an additional 2.15 million tons of inferred mineral resources as calculated and released by Nyrstar in early 2015. The Campo Morado Mine was commissioned and commenced operations in 2009. Nyrstar purchased Farallon Resources in a friendly takeover in 2010 for the equivalent of approximately C$410 million thereby gaining control of Campo Morado. Nyrstar produced up to the end of 2014 when mining operations were suspended in January 2015 and the mine was placed on care and maintenance due to deteriorating industry conditions. . Telson purchased 100% of the Campo Morado Mine in June 2017 for a negotiated purchase price of US$20 million.
