Production as of Dec/08 is350Tpd. the Extracted Mineral is Transported From Stockpiles Directly to the Animón Plant at Chungar(42KM.)With Trucks of 40MT Capacity. Considering That the Production Will Increase up to2,000Tpd.,the Capacity of Animón Plant Would not be Enough; Therefore,the Construction of a Plant in Alpamarca is Being Designed and Programmed to Operate in 2011. Alpamarca is Programmed to Increase its Production In The Long Term to720,000MT in the Following Years.
