:: Pasto Bueno Passes First Test

The Pasto Bueno tungsten mill has been started up and passed its first tests, according to owner DYNACOR of Montreal. Commissioning began the last week of July in the first section (primary crusher, cone crusher, helicoidal classifier and jigs). It was followed by getting the ball mill, hydrocyclones, vibratory tables and spirals on line.

The mill is treating ore from the Huaura area of the mine. The initial rate was 50 tonnes/day, but the 250-tonnes/day capacity should be reached early in 2007. There is a second, larger mill on the property.

The Pasto Bueno mines has proven and probable reserves of 223,570 tonnes grading 2.04% WO3.
