“Juan Gavidia, CEO of Orvana stated: ‘We are pleased to share with the investment community our Taguas PEA, authored by Wood. The highlights of the Taguas PEA, particularly the solid production, cost and revenue assumptions, as summarized in our June 28, 2019 press release, sends a clear message of value creation to Orvana’s shareholders.

Management is now scoping out next steps to fully take advantage of the potential mineral resource upside, as well as to define the economics of Taguas with greater certainty and with a view of identifying opportunities to improve on the economics, given the latest global macro-economic trends.'”
