VANCOUVER, Oct. 26, 2018 /CNW/ - Marlin Gold Mining Ltd. (TSX-V: MLN) ("Marlin" or the "Company") is providing an update on Hurricane Willa, which made landfall on Mexico's Pacific coast as a Category 3 on Tuesday evening and crossed over the Company's wholly owned La Trinidad gold mine in Sinaloa, Mexico (the "La Trinidad Mine") early Wednesday morning.
The Company is pleased to report that no injuries were sustained by any of Marlin's employees or contractors and that the clinic at the La Trinidad Mine has been made available to members of the local community impacted by the storm. To date, we have not had to care for any serious injuries from members of the community.
The heap leach pad, crusher and process plant do not appear to have sustained any significant damage, although the Company is still evaluating their operating condition. Pumps were active and working throughout the storm, and no environmental discharge occurred.
As a result of heavy rainfall from Hurricane Willa, a significant amount of water has accumulated inside the Taunus pit, which will need to be pumped. While the Taunus pit is being dewatered, and until steady deliveries of consumables can be made, the Company intends to process the surface stockpile located next to the crusher.
The local municipality has begun to clear the roads to the La Trinidad Mine, but until normal road access is restored, deliveries of consumables will be limited. There is presently no estimate on how long it will take to restore normal road access.
Importantly, Marlin is appropriately insured for property damage, pit dewatering, debris removal and income loss due to business interruption at the La Trinidad Mine.
