VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Feb. 5, 2013) - Huldra Silver Inc. (TSX VENTURE:HDA) (the "Company") is pleased to announce that during January, 2013, an estimated total of 127 dry metric tonnes of lead/silver concentrates and an estimated 90 dry metric tonnes of zinc concentrates have been shipped to a smelter under the terms of previously announced concentrate purchase agreements. The Company has received provisional payments representing approximately 85% of the total receipts for the first 195 dry metric tonnes of lead/silver concentrates and 147.3 dry metric tonnes of zinc concentrates shipped to date. Concentrates continue to be shipped on a regular basis. The Company will receive final receipts for November, 2012 and the first half of December, 2012 during February, 2013 based upon current metal prices. Once independent assays have been confirmed, the Company will begin publishing trailing revenues.
The Company continues to make adjustments to the mill equipment and processes to maximize metallurgical recovery and throughput. Since the last update a number of permanent adjustments to the operation have been implemented. The Company has also made significant progress to deal with moisture in the mill feed. The gravel screening plant has been moved from the aggregate pit and is now in place sorting up to 150 tonnes per hour of raw mill feed into finer and coarser material. The finer material is being directly fed into the mill via a secondary hopper and the coarser material is being put through the regular crushing circuit. With two sources of feed to the mill, the Company expects output will be significantly increased over the coming weeks. There are still minor modifications and adjustments being made to the equipment and processing that require brief stoppages. However, the total utilization of the mill continues to increase. The Company expects to announce commercial production in the first quarter of 2013.
