Newlox Gold Video Update on the Mercury Free Boston Project
Vancouver, BC, 28 September 2022 – Newlox Gold Ventures Corp. (“Newlox” or the “Company”) (CSE: LUX | Frankfurt/Stuttgart: NGO | PINK: NWLXF)is pleased to invite you to view a CEO Clip posted on the official Newlox Gold YouTube channel updating investors on construction at the Boston Clean Gold Project, which will be Newlox Gold’s second gold recovery operation in Costa Rica.
Newlox Gold’s construction contractors have made significant progress recently at the Boston Project and anticipate the completion of construction this fall. Following the commissioning and testing phases, the Boston Project will provide a no mercury use environmentally positive mineral processing option for local miners, providing economic, environmental, and social benefits to local stakeholders while generating value for Newlox Gold’s shareholders.
Recently, the Company has completed the construction of a loading ramp capable of supporting the heavy dump trucks used for feedstock delivery, fabricated the feedstock chute, moved fixed equipment to site, installed and upgraded water recirculation and treatment systems, and began the fabrication and installation of crushing and grinding equipment, conveyors, and other material handling infrastructure.
The Boston Project, the Company’s second environmentally and socially positive precious metals recovery plant, will process feedstock newly extracted from the Boston Mine by the Company’s local mining partners. Newlox will operate the new Boston mill to process 150 tonnes per day of material grading +- 15 grams per tonne gold with anticipated gold recovery of 90%. All feedstock is to be provided by the Company’s mining partners, with profits to be split evenly between the parties.
Since the early 1900s local miners have continuously operated informal and formal mines in the Central Gold Belt of Costa Rica and the area of the Boston Mine. Traditional pre-industrial mining and goldsmithing history in the area dates to 400-500 AD. Precious metals production and smithing are an integral part of the heritage and traditions of local groups and continue today for both economical and cultural reasons. For the first time since the application of the mercury amalgamation process in artisanal gold and silver production, the new Boston plant will achieve zero use of mercury and eliminate its associated environmental damage.
