via BacTech Environmental Corporation. In June 2011, BacTech signed a Memorandum of Understanding (“MOU”) for a tailings project in Chihuahua, Mexico, with TW SEOP, S.C., doing business as “Teamwork”. The tailings are located at the closed Avalos smelter in the city of Chihuahua.
Teamwork was recently engaged by the State Government of Chihuahua through the Avalos Trust (Fideicomiso Avalos) to remove all the surface material from the site. Included in the material to be removed is a yet to be quantified amount of tailings containing up to 250 g/t silver, 10% zinc and 3.5% lead, slag produced from the smelting operation and concentrates that were left behind at the time of closing.
