Equinox Gold beats revised 2020 guidance, posts record Q4 production
Production for Q4 2020 totalled 136,400 oz of gold, including gold poured during commissioning and ramp-up at Castle Mountain.
The company said that its RDM mine “significantly outperformed” expectations, with the Mesquite, Aurizona and Pilar mines exceeding “the top end” of their guidance range.
All-in-sustaining costs for the full year are expected to be within guidance of $975 to $1,025 per oz of gold sold.
“Equinox Gold had another year of tremendous growth in 2020. We started the year with two producing gold mines and ended the year with seven producing mines, construction underway at an eighth site, and the announcement of our acquisition of Premier Gold Mines. This transaction brings additional diversification and scale with a world-class construction-ready project in Canada and a producing mine in Mexico, and provides additional value from our investment in a new Nevada-focused gold company,” said CEO Christian Milau.
Equinox Gold is a Canadian mining company with seven operating gold mines and construction underway at an eighth site. Equinox Gold operates entirely in the Americas, with two properties in the United States, one in Mexico and five in Brazil.
