Trevali Begins Santander Mine Metallurgical Plant Zinc and Lead-Silver Concentrate Production

Trevali Mining Corporation ("Trevali" or the "Company") wishes to announce that it has commenced zinc and lead-silver concentrate production from the metallurgical plant at the Santander Mine in Peru.

The Crushing, Transfer, Grinding (all four mills), Flotation and Tailings circuits are all operational and undergoing commissioning and optimization (Figure 1).

As part of the commissioning process the mill is currently processing stock-piled mineralized feed during day-shift and fine tuning the plant and optimizing the reagent schemes and run criteria following each run during the subsequent night-shift as required (Figure 2).
