Newlox Reports 370% Quarter-Over-Quarter Revenue Growth
Vancouver, BC, December 16, 2019 – Newlox Gold Ventures Corp. (“Newlox” or the “Company”) (CSE: LUX | Frankfurt: NGO) published financial statements for the second quarter of fiscal 2020. Management reports that sales revenue increased 370% quarter-over-quarter as a result of increased efficiencies at Newlox’s first artisanal tailings reclamation and precious metals recovery facility in Central America. Management expected this result as Newlox’s operations team has been executing its plan to ramp-up production at the facility.
From the start of commercial operations in June of 2019, Newlox has carefully increased throughput and improved efficiency. The operations team achieved production goals by re-investing operational revenue to facilitate incremental organic growth at Project One and intends to expand Newlox’s environmentally and socially positive business model to additional targeted projects.
- Newlox recently shared a video demonstrating the operation of its in-house analytical laboratory. The on-site laboratory has both fire-assay and atomic absorption capabilities, allowing for the sampling and assaying of both solid and liquid samples for precious metals. The lab enables strict control of feed grade, operational parameters, and metals produced.
- Newlox marked four months of continuous gold production on October 8, 2019 and shared asecond video of gold doré being poured at the environmental remediation and precious metals production facility.
- Newlox posted a video demonstrating one of the many regular gold doré pours during the summer.
- Newlox established steady-state operations in June, as announced July 9, 2019
- The Company announced completion of pre-production activities on May 27, 2019.
About Newlox Gold Ventures Corp.
Newlox Gold Ventures Corp. is an environmental remediation company recovering contaminants and residual precious metals from historical waste left behind over more than a century of inefficient artisanal and small-scale mining in politically and socially stable jurisdictions in Latin America.
The Newlox environmentally and socially responsible business model has been deployed after extensive experience in the region and with the help of the Company’s technical advisors at the Norman B. Keevil Institute of Mining Engineering at the University of British Columbia (“UBC”) which, provides theCompany with the unique advantage of not having to undertake exploration work or mining, resulting in dramatically reduced costs.
Newlox also benefits from the high grades characteristic of artisanal mine tailings due to the inefficient processing techniques used by the original miners.
With the guidance of its advisors at UBC, the Company has also identified essential remediation technologies designed to recover deleterious materials present due to historical artisanal mining practices and is deploying these systems in the field as part of the commissioning process.
Newlox has signed agreements with local artisanal mining cooperatives to provide both a steady supply of historical tailings and a newly created feedstock for its first fully operational processing plant in Central America.
With hundreds of years of mining history in Latin America and inefficient artisanal processing continuing to this day, the Company has identified and secured a compelling opportunity to grow its business model. Newlox has identified a niche within the extractive industry where a clean-technology company can apply innovative processing techniques to recover not only precious metals but also affect positive change in the environmental and social landscape in its targeted jurisdictions of operations.
