Assay TV hears from Alastair Mclntyre, president and CEO of Altiplano Metals (TSXV: APN, OTCQB: ALTFP, WKN: A2JNFG), about how the Farellon copper-gold mine, located near La Serena in Chile, is undergoing a planned expansion.
A 6,200m underground drilling programme got underway at Farellon in early August 2021, with the aim of outlining an exploration target of more than 60,000 tonnes of copper-gold and iron oxide mineralization. Processing facilities, including the mill and flotation plant, are also under construction at the site. We also learn how, after completion in Q1 2022, the project’s dewatering system will reduce freshwater consumption by 75% and lower the tailings footprint by 45%.
