In a press release at the start of the week, Brazil Minerals Inc announced that the initial gold retrieval unit installed in one of its mining concessions for gold in the Jequitinhonha River valley in Brazil has begun operations. This unit was built to specifications at a metalworking facility located in northern Minas Gerais state in Brazil and after transport, the company took over two weeks to configure, test, and optimize several aspects of its operation.
In the same press release, Brazil Minerals Inc announced that the portable diamond and gold plant of an unrelated third-party enterprise that signed a previously announced royalty deal also started operations. Under this royalty agreement, Brazil Minerals Inc will receive 25% of this third party’s production of gold and diamond at virtually no cost to the company.
