Figure 1. The Enhanced Processing Plant
Newlox Gold Ventures Corp. (“Newlox” or the “Company”) (CSE: LUX | Frankfurt: NGO) is pleased to announce that it has resumed gold production following the unavoidable Covid-19 suspension of operations at its environmental remediation and gold production facility in Costa Rica.
Management utilized the temporary interruption to upgrade the Company’s production circuit and is pleased to report that the enhanced facility is operational.
The Plant has a rated capacity of 80 tonnes per day of material grading +9 grams per tonne gold with an anticipated gold recovery of approximately 90%.
A Message from Ryan Jackson, President & CEO:
“We are excited to resume gold production at the first processing plant and have set a goal to achieve full production within the first half of 2021. Newlox Gold has also started development work on Plant 2, located at its recently announced Boston Project.
Management looks forward to producing at Plant 2 shortly after Plant 1 achieves rated capacity. Additionally, Newlox Gold has multiple expansion projects under due-diligence, and we expect to announce our third project early next year.”
