Callyoma is located approximately 225 kilometers northwest of Arequipa, Peru at an elevation of 4,500 meters above sea level. The mine, processing plant and related infrastructure are located in the Caylloma Mining District, 14 kilometers northwest of the town of Caylloma.
Fortuna purchased a 100% interest in the Caylloma Mine and related mining concessions in 2005. Following significant expansion and modernization of the mill, the mine resumed production in the final quarter of 2006.
The mill is currently operating at a rate of 1,300 tpd. Production is sourced primarily from the silver-polymetallic Animas vein (95%), with the balance from the Bateas vein.
