Overview

Campo Morado, Guerrero State

Campo Morado is an underground multi-metal mine with infrastructure, installations and equipment capable of processing 2,500 tonnes of ore per day. There are over 700 exploration diamond drill holes in place which have outlined six mineralized bodies containing approximately 14.7 million tons of measured and indicated resources grading 3.76% zinc, 0.88% copper, 0.81% lead, 106 g/t Ag and 1.34 g/t Au plus an additional 2.15 million tons of inferred mineral resources as calculated and released by Nyrstar in early 2015. The Campo Morado Mine was commissioned and commenced operations in 2009. Nyrstar purchased Farallon Resources in a friendly takeover in 2010 for the equivalent of approximately C$420 million thereby gaining control of Campo Morado. Nyrstar produced up to the end of 2014 when mining operations were suspended in January 2015 and the mine was placed on care and maintenance due to deteriorating industry conditions. During 2014, the mine processed 657,000 tons of ore with an average grade of 1.2g/t Au, 115.7 g/t Ag, 4.6% Zn, 1.2% Cu and 0.9% Pb. The concentrates produced in the same year were 48,000 tons of Zn concentrate at 47% Zn and 29,000 tons of Cu concentrate at 13%, including 6,000 oz of Au and 0.9 million oz of Ag.

Upon closing of the acquisition agreement Telson plans to work towards restarting mining operations at Campo Morado. Management anticipates that this process could take 4 to 6 months and will require operating capital which Telson hopes to obtain from, and are in discussions with, concentrate purchasers for offtake funding.
