Inca One Announces Record Production Numbers For May
VANCOUVER, BC – June 8, 2021 – INCA ONE GOLD CORP. (TSXV:INCA) (OTC:INCAF) (Frankfurt:SU92) (“Inca One” or the “Company”) a gold producer, operating two, fully permitted, mineral processing facilities in Peru, is pleased to report it has just recorded its most productive May since commencing operations in 2015. All comparative month-over-month (“MoM”) production numbers represent consolidated operations from both facilities.
|Consolidated Production||May-21||Apr-21||MoM Change|
|Gold Production (ounces)||2,219||1,141||94%|
Gold production for May 2021 increased 94% on a MoM basis as Inca One produced 2,219 ounces of gold compared to April 2021 (1,141 ounces). The Company also processed 3,538 tonnes of material in May 2021 as compared to the prior month of April 2021 (2,968 tonnes). This was the highest level of gold production for the Company in over one year, dating back to pre COVID-19 operations of March 2020 (2,315 ounces). Average grade processed this past May also increased to 19 grams per tonne, an increase of 58% over the prior month of April.
Deliveries for the month of May 2021 also increased significantly by 46% on a MoM basis as 5,367 tonnes of gold and silver bearing material was delivered between our Chala One and Kori One processing facilities. Deliveries for the month averaged 173 tonnes per day (“TPD”).
“I am pleased with the increase in production and especially the level of deliveries recorded at our plants over this past May,” stated Edward Kelly, President and CEO of Inca One. “Our ore purchasing teams have been focused and working hard to source high quality, high grade mineral supplies and their effort has been recognized as we recorded record numbers this past month."
As indicated, this past month was the most productive May in the Company’s history. The high level of deliveries should bode well for June’s production numbers which generally lag deliveries by a few weeks. The steady increase in deliveries is a direct result of the effective deployment of the OCIM Gold Pre-Payment Facility (see Press Release dated March 31, 2021).
