The project is comprised of underground mining and a concentrator with 2kt/d ore capacity. In the 2014 PEA, the mine life of the project was estimated at 8 years.
The major challenge for this project is a metallurgical one. The deposit consists of oxide, sulphide and mixed transitional ore. The mine plan incorporated in the PEA 2014 targeted the extraction of the sulphide zone only.
The San Luis Potosi highway and electricity substation are located about 6.2km from the minesite.
