1st Phase Plant now completed

The first bucket at the oxide open pit was on April 6, 2020. Since then oxide ore has been stockpiled at a ROM pad. Construction of the plant ended on May 28, 2020. The plant successfully completed both cold and hot commissioning and has now reached commercial production and is being operated 24/7 under two 12-hour operating shifts per day

A public tender for an increase in the treatment capacity of the oxide gold processing plant was recently completed. The Company is planning to start construction to increase the processing capacity of the oxide plant capacity by approximately 200% in the fourth quarter of this year.

“I am delighted that we have achieved this important milestone in our gold production growth plan, ” said James E. Sinclair, Executive Chairman of the Company. He went on to say that “we are now well-positioned to increase the production of gold significantly; and to accelerate our final feasibility on bringing a second, much larger plant on-line to produce more gold from processing the sulphide ore.”
