Trigon Restarts Production at Kombat Mine in Namibia

Trigon Metals Inc. announced the full restart of milling and processing at the Kombat mine. The company said it has succeeded in restarting copper concentrate production at the Kombat mine in Namibia, placing the project on track to meet commercial production targets by the end of September.

On the evening of August 3, 2023, the company achieved the major milestone of turning on the mill’s crushing facility and starting the flotation circuit. The plant has been running in 3-hour bursts as the Trigon team fine-tunes the equipment and sets up for a 24-hour, 7-day-a-week operation. Concentrate levels are building in the thickeners with first concentrate production pending.

Trigon President and CEO Jed Richardson thanked the staff, contractors, suppliers, local partners, and the Namibian government for their concerted efforts in getting Kombat back into production. “This milestone for both our company and the Kombat community pushes us forward as a cash-flowing operation,” Richardson said.
