Metal productions have increased at New Century with zinc recoveries averaging at 50 percent for March 2019 and peaking at 54 percent.

This improvement resulted in a 50.4 percent increase in total metal productions with 18,170t of zinc and 152g/t of silver.

The quality of zinc also improved with a 25 percent decrease in lead impurity, 5.6 percent for March 2019 compared to 7.5 percent in 2018.

However, the effects of the wet season resulted in an eight percent reduction in overall zinc metal mined.

Despite these effects in total metal mined the operations still achieved an increase in metal production of over 50 percent.

New Century is aiming to ramp up to 15Mtpa mining rate by the end of 2019 and continued progression towards the remainder of nameplate recovery.
