Excelsior Mining Corp confirmed the first delivery of acid to the Gunnison Copper Project in southern Arizona. Excelsior remains on-schedule for first copper production in Q4 2019. In July, Excelsior completed the construction of three new acid storage tanks and a new acid unloading facility. The new acid storage tanks have capacity for 7500 tons of sulphuric acid, providing for excess operational and purchasing flexibility. Acid deliveries commenced on August 12th and will continue on a regular basis until the tanks are full and throughout operations.

Mr Roland Goodgame, COO, commented, “The new acid deliveries are on schedule and continue to demonstrate our progress towards operations later this year. The pure sulfuric acid in these tanks is diluted down to a weak sulfuric acid mining solution via the new acid handling and delivery system. This weaker acid solution is used in the wellfield operations to leach the copper from the naturally fractured rocks below ground.”
