Kitco News

The first gold bar from Lundin Gold's Fruta del Norte was poured on Saturday.

The company said the commissioning of the carbon in leach circuit is ongoing and nearing completion. The first export of concentrate and doré is expected by mid-December.

Earlier last week, Lundin Gold held an inauguration ceremony of its Fruta del Norte gold project. The event was attended by Ecuadorian national, provincial, and local government authorities, as well as stakeholders and community groups.

Ecuador's Vice President, Otto Sonnenholzner, lauded the mine in a company news release, stating "...the great work that this team has done, which makes our country proud. Let's make Fruta del Norte be the light that guides Ecuador as it develops its mining sector."
