Philex Mining Corp. Provides Mine Update
Oct 29 15
Philex Mining Corp. announced updated summary of remaining proved reserves as of December 31, 2014, reflecting additional reserves of 20 million tones and extending Padcal's life of mine by two years from 2020 to 2022. An engineering study was done on mining the mineral resource from 600-800ML based on the March 20, 2015 ore resource disclosure by Mr. Noel C. Oliveros, a competent person for exploration and mineral resource estimation. The operating cost of PHP 810 per tone used in the estimate is higher than the PHP 688 per tone used in the December 31, 2013 estimate. This gives a higher break-even grade in terms of Percent Copper Equivalent. Mineable reserves of 18.3 million tones are estimated from the 800-600 ML mineral resource translating to an increase of 12.5 million tones compared to the 5.8 million tones that was earlier disclosed last March 23, 2015 to be mined at 745 ML. These reserves will be mined via Sub-Level Caving method at 760 ML, 730 ML and 700 ML. The Sub-Level Caving mining method has been used extensively at the 840 ML and the 867 ML.
