Primero Reports Preliminary Q1 2016 Production Results; Quarter Focused on Creating a Workplace Free of Accidents

“Primero invested a significant amount of time and resources during the first quarter to create a transformational shift in attitude towards achieving a workplace free of accidents. The safe operation of our two mines is our top priority and while we are encouraged to see a transformation, we know we must remain vigilant,” stated Ernest Mast, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Although production was well below our original expectations during this implementation period, we are committed to getting our operations up to full capacity as quickly as possible. We have a strong operational plan at San Dimas to deliver planned throughput rates with the more stringent ground control conditions for the remainder of 2016. During April, the mine has operated at production rates greater than the nameplate 2,500 tonnes per day. …”

Excellon Reports First Quarter 2016 Production

“In Q1 2016, we again saw the upside potential of Platosa’s exceptionally high-grade massive sulphide mantos and began to see further material benefits from our long-term dewatering efforts,” stated Brendan Cahill, President and Chief Executive Officer. “In late February, we accessed the Rodilla Manto, approximately seven months ahead of schedule as we encountered mineralization outside of the Platosa resource block model and dry mining conditions facilitated rapid development. A significant amount of this ‘bonus’ mineralization was ultra high grade, with approximately 1,600 tonnes of ore produced from Rodilla during March grading over 1,000 g/t Ag, 10% Pb and 10% Zn. This ore was blended with lower grade and low-cost stockpiles to improve mill recoveries and concentrate payability. We are currently developing into the next level of the Rodilla Manto and expect the continuing optimization program at Platosa to deliver further operational improvements as the year progresses.”
