A glance at some of the day’s highlights from the Proactive Investors US and Canada newswires
Altaley Mining Corporation is an emerging multi-mine producer in Mexico, which has transformed in the past year, and has near-term catalysts that could potentially re-rate the stock. That’s the view of Red Cloud Securities, which recently carried out a site visit at the firm’s Campo Morado mine and Tahuehueto projects – both wholly-owned polymetallic assets. Operational improvements at the former and first production from the latter are key to a potential re-rating, noted its analysts. Campo Morado is already a producer, having restarted operations in January 2020 due to the improved zinc price. Altaley is now looking at expanding the plant to over 3,000 tpd by adding a flotation circuit but it is also investigating technologies to boost base and precious metal recoveries, said Red Cloud. Meanwhile, at Tahuehueto, construction was well underway with underground development around 90% complete and a 1,000 tpd processing plant around 80% finished, said analysts. Red Cloud said it expected the mine to begin initial production near the end of 2021 at a throughput rate of 500 tpd which would ramp up over H1/22 to 1,000 tpd with commercial production anticipated to be declared in the third quarter of 2022.
