TREVALI PROVIDES UPDATE ON EXTENSION OF GOVERNMENT DECLARATION OF NATIONAL EMERGENCY IN PERU
The Peruvian President announced on March 26 that the government has extended the state of national emergency, which restricts travel in its efforts to contain the outbreak of COVID-19, to April 12. An additional 13 days were added to the original 15-day period.
The Santander mine has been in full compliance with the government's requirements since the national emergency was declared and has been able to continue operations with no material impact to date. However, as a result of the extension of the declaration, the company will not be able to process ore for the duration of the extension due to the consumption of reagents on site. Mining and other activities will continue, and mined ore will be stockpiled until April 12, 2020, at which time the company anticipates resuming normal production levels, including milling at the mine.
Ricus Grimbeek, president and chief executive officer, stated: "We have made modifications to the operations at Santander so we can continue to mine and stockpile ore. More importantly, our work force is healthy as we have had no suspected cases of COVID-19. We are ready for a quick and efficient ramp-up of the processing facility back to normal levels once the state of emergency is lifted."
