As previously announced, the new Metso Crusher 125 increases PDI Panama's crushing capacity by approximately 10,000 tonnes per day, providing greater flexibility to ore processing and increasing the portfolio of construction-grade aggregate products that can be produced. This additional crushing capacity will help reduce the stacking period of the Company's on/off leach pads and support the expansion of the Molejon gold plant with a fourth ball mill. The Company plans to continue to increase crushing capacity by acquiring a second Metso Crusher 125.
PDI Panama is also advancing its plans to produce concrete, taking advantage of easy access to small size construction aggregate at Molejon. (Press Release)
