The company’s recent scoping study on the Berenguela Project in Peru has concluded that the project is positive, enabling the company to initiate a pre-feasibility study (PFS).
The scoping study utilised part of the project’s measured and indicated resource in a shallow open pit mine with a low strip ratio. Importantly, no inferred resources were utilised in the study.
Valor expects to complete the drill program and geotechnical study within calendar year 2018. Metallurgical test work remains on-going and compliments the process design phase.
