In addition, we are working towards completing the ‘integration drift’ to connect the Colquechaquita and Tres Amigos mines at Caballo Blanco, which is expected to be completed in Q1 2024, and increasing the dewatering capacity at Bolivar. Both these initiatives are expected to significantly improve operations at each mine.”
