ALPHAMIN RESOURCES CORP. PROVIDES PROJECT UPDATE, RELEASES INTERIM RESULTS
MAURITIUS – August 29, 2018 – Alphamin Resources Corp. (AFM: TSXV, “Alphamin” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce an update on progress at its Bisie Tin Project.
Construction of the Company’s 80.75% owned Bisie Tin Project is currently on schedule and 75% complete. Commissioning of the process plant is scheduled for Q1 2019. Equity financing raised to date together with the US$80m credit facility is currently projected to take the Company through to commercial production.
Key project highlights include;
Over 1 million-man hours worked by over 600 employees with no lost time injuries reported.
- Mine construction
Progressing ahead of schedule with 1709 development meters complete out of a total of 2,700.
- Process plant
Construction ahead of schedule with 256 tons of steel erected with majority of kit required now on site.
Construction of the Company’s 36Km access road to site and airstrip is now complete with project deliveries getting through to site without difficulty.
- Logistics and procurement
73% of project loads have been delivered to the mine site. Procurement is 90% complete.
- Social and community
Social development investments targeting over 1500 households for livelihoods and community infrastructure projects continue. Site security and community relations have been strengthened further by the peaceful and voluntary migration of the remaining 500 artisanal miners from Alphamin’s concession in late 2017 and early 2018.
The recent Ebola outbreak in the North Kivu province is being monitored closely and strict protocols have been put in place to reduce the risk of transmission at Bisie. The outbreak is located some 1,200km from Bisie by road. To date there has been no impact on the Company’s operations.
The Company has also filed its interim financial statements for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018 and Management Discussion and Analysis – quarterly highlights, which are available on SEDAR.com.
