MacLean’s EV series production support mining equipment has been chosen by Torex Gold Resources for their Media Luna project at the gold producer’s Morelos complex in Mexico.
The fleet of MacLean EV series battery electric mining vehicles (BEVs) that will be manufactured, commissioned, and supported by MacLean at the Media Luna project will include a full suite of utility vehicles, explosives chargers, elevated work platforms, graders, and material transporters.
Media Luna is an underground gold-copper-silver deposit, located on the south side of the Balsas River. The skarn hosted deposit was discovered in March 2012. The project has an after-tax net present value (discounted 5%) of $458 million and after-tax internal-return-rate of 16.1%. In 2022, drilling at Media Luna resulted in an inaugural measured resource of approximately 473,000 oz.
“I’m honoured that Torex has chosen MacLean as one of their fleet suppliers. I couldn’t be prouder of my colleagues or more excited for what’s to come as we help support this first, key step in electrifying the Mexican underground mining industry,” said Tony Caron, MacLean vice-president of Latin America and Quebec.
