Three plants launched at West Kytlim

Eurasia Mining Plc ("Eurasia" or the "Company"), the palladium, platinum, rhodium, iridium and gold producing company, is pleased to announce that three plants have now been successfully commissioned at West Kytlim.

 

Three Plants Launched

To increase production and remove single asset risk at West Kytlim three plants have successfully been commissioned as planned and initially announced via RNS on 12 May 2021:

· the first plant is located on the border of Klyuchiki area and Bolshaya Sosnovka area to process the material mined from both these areas,

 

· the second and the third plants are located on the border of Malaya Sosnovka and Bolshaya Sosnovka areas to process material mined from Bolshaya Sosnovka.

 

Electricity Powerline Progress

The electricity powerline project is progressing on schedule as announced on 12 May 2021 and our team at West Kytlim are comparing several options to acquire an electric dragline to significantly increase our mining capacity and to replace diesel with grid electricity for our processing and ancillary activities. This is part of the undertakings we have made to further improve our ESG commitment (for more information on the ESG at West Kytlim please refer to the RNS of 15 March 2021). Additional benefits of the electricity grid connection and the use of an electric dragline are substantial cost reductions in both mining and processing costs.

 

Christian Schaffalitzky, Executive Chairman of Eurasia commented: " The Board and our Team are enthusiastic about developing the business concurrently with making progress on the strategic options that we have on the table".

 

James Nieuwenhuys, CEO and Managing Director of Eurasia commented: " The Directors are pleased that we are consistently delivering on our promises in terms of our expansion plans, cost reduction and last, but not the least sustainability. The electricity grid connection will further improve our ESG credentials and together with the three plants successfully launched will cement our position as a low-cost producer".
