September 3, 2014
Vancouver, B.C., September 3, 2014 – INCA ONE RESOURCES CORP. (TSX‐V:IO) (“Inca One” or the “Company”) is pleased to give an update on the Chala One milling facility upgrade as it remains fully funded, on schedule and on budget for 100 TPD capacity by the end of Q4 2014.
The first 50TPD ball mill being manufactured in Lima Peru, is over 70% complete and expected to be delivered to the Chala One site by the end of September. In addition, the down payment has been made to commence the assembly of the second 50 TPD ball mill and it is slated for delivery by the middle of November.
For the first phase of production of 50 TPD two 20x20 tanks, one 16x16 tank and one 14x14 tank have been fabricated and were delivered to the Chala One site on Wednesday, August 27th 2014. The cement pads for the tanks are complete and are ready now for the assembly of the tanks.

Inca One has also purchased an 80-ton scale allowing the company to weigh ore on arrival at the Chala One processing site to further reduce risk of third party errors. Construction has begun and will be completed at the end of November.
“In short, we are very pleased with our team who remain committed to meeting specific timelines and budgets,” states George Moen, COO of Inca One “we are excited to be in the position to say that cash flow is now in the very foreseeable future.”
ED & ED Engineering Services SA, a Peruvian engineering firm who has built a number of plants for the ore-processing sector of up to 300 TPD is currently on-site, developing the facility's start-up strategy and overseeing the construction of the plant expansion.
The Chala One (CIL) plant is located on 17 hectares of property in the region of Arequipa. Arequipa hosts the largest amount of small-scale mines, which are legal to buy and process ore from. These are mines that are unable to support stand-alone plants and the potential demand for ore processing is considerable. The company has identified sufficient ore sources in the Arequipa region to meet its short and long term sales goals.
