LAS VEGAS, Aug. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Amarium Technologies, Inc., (OTC: AMMG) through it's wholly owned subsidiary Amarium Minerals Inc., reports the commencement of the ore extraction program at the recently acquired El Desvan Cobre mine. El Desvan is located in the Mexican state of Michoacan, within close proximity to both the Company's producing copper mines, San Pedro and La Jovita.
The program has begun limited mining operations at El Desvan by extracting and trucking up to 200 tons of ore daily to supplement production at the San Pedro Mill in the short-term. The San Pedro property is currently undergoing its own exploration program.
"The acquisition of El Desvan gives the Company another option for ore supply in both the near and long-term. We have now begun extracting ore to supplement production at the San Pedro mill. With the existing production rates averaging 120 tons daily at San Pedro, the additional supply from El Desvan will allow production to increase to 300 tons per day. This will better utilize the existing capital investment in plant and equipment and allow for improved efficiencies and economies of scale, resulting in lower production costs per ton," says Adam Carter, the President and CEO of Amarium. "More importantly, it will allow us to concurrently mine on the San Pedro property, while submitting ore for bulk sampling and testing and to increase daily throughput with no disruptions to production."
Amarium is focused on the acquisition and development of base metals projects in Mexico that are currently in or near production and advanced exploration properties that will add substantially to the Company's asset foundation. Management is continuing to actively pursue mineral interests that represent significant growth, value and cash flow opportunities.
