Arequipa, Peru, April 25th, 2013 – Gold Horizons Mining (G.H.M) a B.V.I Corporation (ticker: GHMG on GXG markets). Central to the ramping up of gold production and a key component in Gold Horizon’s mining success is the completion of its new Yuromayo processing plant. G.H.M is pleased to report the company has contracted MBM SAC to complete the last construction phase of this cost efficient “on site” C.I.L gold processing plant. Their work will include metallurgy testing, engineering of the tailing ponds and completion and safety testing of the electro/mechanical connections.
MBM SAC has some 35 years experience in consulting, superintendent and trainer in the field of mining and civil construction. The owner/operator of MBM SAC, Scott McInnes is originally from British Columbia, Canada. For the past 20 years he has been living in Peru and successfully operating the company. Gold Horizons Mining has formed a strategic partnership with MBM SAC with the focus on ramping up mining production at the Gloria Mine to some 200 tons per day.
In the coming weeks the agitation tanks will be tested, the mills loaded with steel balls and fine tuned to insure proper milling particle size. The 10 x 20 primary crusher is being installed and the conveyor belts are undergoing testing. In summary, the majority of the processing plant equipment is onsite and each phase of the processing plant from crushing to milling to agitation/leaching and the chemistry involved is being completed and fine tuned. The company expects to be processing its first test batch of mineral within 4 weeks. Scott Francis, CEO and President: “I am pushing all the contractors to stay on schedule and to start processing our mineral by June 1st, 2013. We have hundreds of tons of mineral both from the Gloria Mine as well as nearby surrounding mines waiting to be processed. It has been a busy past 6 months completing the plant and I am very excited to see our hard work come to fruition.”
