At La María, the plant is in perfect condition and performing at the expected level. We could not understand the lack of reconciliation between incoming and outgoing material, but we have learned that this is perfectly normal and to be expected in a plant that has been shut down for so long.
In the laboratory we have managed to refine the gold to 99.5 purity, which converts the result into investment gold, a milestone if we take into account that it is not a refinery but gold processed directly in the laboratory.

In vereda Guayaquil a total of 304 tonnes of material have been processed with an input tenor of 2,362g/T and an average recovery of 84.29% has been obtained (having achieved maximums of 91%).
