TORONTO, Jan. 30, 2012 /CNW/ - Red Tiger Mining Inc., (TSXV-RMN), (the "Company" or "Red Tiger") is pleased to report that the
construction and development of the Company's Luz del Cobre Copper
Project (Sonora, Mexico) has reached an overall 85% completion mark.
The mining contractor has continued waste rock removal and copper ore is
being stockpiled next to the crusher at the valley leach pad area. Ore
mined from the end of November to January 25, 2012 from the 650 to 640
metre levels totaled 50,300 tonnes at an average grade of 0.87% copper
based on blast hole sample assays, compared to a planned grade of 0.77%
copper. Crushing and stacking of ore on the leach pad will start in
February while the solvent extraction and electro-winning plant enters
into various stages of commissioning. Copper cathode production from
this 15 million pounds of copper per year project is expected to
commence in April, at a cash cost of production (cash cost before
interest, taxes, and amortization) projected to average $1.30 per pound
over the life of the mine.
The Company is also pleased to announce that its new website www.redtigermining.com is operational and special reference is made to a photo gallery linked
to the home page showing the progress on site at Luz del Cobre.
