(Kitco News) - Nordgold said today that Q1 gold production increased by 4% YoY to 225.9 koz mainly driven by higher volumes of ore processed at Taborny, Gross and Suzdal mines, as well as higher recovery rates at Gross, Suzdal and Taparko.
Q1 production decreased against Q4 2019 mainly due to the normal impact of the winter season on heap leach operations in Russia, lower processed volumes and grade at Bissa-Bouly and Lefa, as well as lower recovery at Suzdal.
The company said it is relatively unaffected by COVID-19.
Nordgold has operations in West Africa, Kazakhstan and Russia.
