Hot Chili ramps up Chilean copper production

Hot Chili has put in place an agreement to ramp up the processing of copper ores from its Productora deposit at the nearby Vallenar mill. The agreement will see the company lift production from its underground mining operations at the high-grade deposit to 180,000 tonnes per annum, a 50% increase on the current mining rate. This increase will will bring the Vallenar mill to its full operating capacity which is likely to reduce operating costs for ENAMI whilst providing an enhanced income stream for Hot Chili.
