Minefinders Corporation Ltd. (NYSE Amex: MFN) reports that remediation work on the phase 1 leach pad at the Company's Dolores Mine continues.

In mid-September, the Company implemented a revised remediation plan. The remediation work has negatively affected production of gold and silver in the third quarter and is also expected to result in lower than planned metal production in the fourth quarter. The decrease in production is expected to be temporary as stacking to the recently constructed phase 2 leach pad has been accelerated to full production levels and leaching of material on phase 2 began in mid-September. Non-leached crushed material from the phase 1 pad will be moved to the phase 2 leach pad in order to accelerate metal recovery.

Minefinders is a precious metals mining and exploration company and operates the multi-million ounce Dolores gold and silver mine in Mexico.
