130.8 tonnes of zinc concentrate grading 40.82% zinc, 12.02 grams gold/tonne, 93.94 grams silver/tonne
Telson anticipates that it will process at least 5,000 tonnes of ore during this 11th campaign and intends to continue to deliver Tahuehueto ore to the Atocha Toll Mill throughout the rest of 2019 which should allow the Company to process at least one campaign of between 3,000 to 5,000 tonnes on a monthly basis until it has completed construction of its on-site 1,000 tonne per day mining facility.
