Gold mining company Resolute Mining recently presented its quarterly activities report for the period ended 31 March 2019.
The record quarterly production results achieved at Resolute Mining’s Syama gold mine in Mali, has resulted in a material reduction of the mines’ all-in-sustaining costs. According to John Welborn, managing director and CEO of Resolute, the quarterly production and costs from Syama represents a site production record of 84 552oz.
“The performance of Tabakoroni was exceptional with high-grade ore and strong recoveries enabling us to also achieve record quarterly production of 71 186oz from the Syama oxide circuit. This strong performance supported our decision to prioritise infrastructure, development and the automation implementation programme at Syama’s underground mine,” says Welborn.
The permanent primary ventilation system and critical pumping infrastructure at Syama was completed during the quarter and the mine also commenced autonomous production drilling as part of the ongoing automation programme.
Welborn says that the underground ore production will continue to ramp up over the coming quarters with commercial production targeted for the September 2019 quarter.
