Capstone slips into optimisation mode

Junior Canadian miner Capstone Mining Corp is optimising its Pinto Valley mine in Arizona and looking at expansion in order to prosper in the low copper price environment. The company has made significant capital investments in 2014 and 2015 under its PV2 mine plan to extend the mine life and increase productivity, president and CEO Darren Pylot told Mining Journal.

With the company nearing completion of its PV2 upgrade project, Capstone expects to complete the feasibility study on its PV3 project during the current quarter.
