Rochester is a junior mining company with 100% ownership of a 7,358 hectare high-grade gold/silver concession in the State of Nayarit, Mexico. During 2006 the Company constructed a 200 tonnes/day conventional milling operation and related infrastructure and completed over 1,500 metres of mine development. By the end of 2006 approximately 17,000 tonnes of mineralized material had been stockpiled in preparation for the commencement of milling operations, which began in early January of 2007. The modular design of the mill allows for the efficient increase in mill capacity at minimal marginal cost to accommodate future increases in mining capacity.
