Guyana Goldfields: 1Q Output In Line With Guidance
Guyana Goldfields Inc. (TSX: GUY) says first-quarter gold output from Aurora Gold Mine was around 38,500 ounces, in line with annual production guidance. The mill processed a record 6,700 tonnes per day of ore at an average head grade of approximately 2.35 grams per tonne gold with gold recoveries averaging 91.0%, the company says. A first-phase mill expansion was completed on time and slightly under budget, Guyana reports. Grade and production is expected to be weighed towards the second half of the year due to mine sequencing and incorporating a higher throughput capacity with the completion of the first and second phases of the mill expansion.
