SMM4, March 17: recently, Atalaya Mining Company released production data for the first quarter of 2020. Atalaya Mining produced a total of 13229 tons of copper in the first quarter, up 29 percent from a year earlier, with a production target of 55000 tons to 58000 tons for the whole of 2020.

In the first quarter, the ore handling capacity of Atalaya Mining Company increased by 40% compared with the same period last year; the average grade of copper was 0.47%, and the recovery rate was 82.62%, down 8% from the same period last year.

Copper production was only slightly lower than in the fourth quarter of 2019, mainly due to a 17% increase in ore handling capacity, which offset the decline in copper grade and recovery.

In March, 5375 tons of copper were produced from 1.35 million tons of mines, with a metal recovery rate of 84.6 per cent.

In February 2020, the company's main maintenance activities continued as usual.
