Yanfolila gold mine back in operation after Malian govt cleared roadblocks
(Kitco News) - West Africa-focused gold mining company Hummingbird Resources reported today that, further to its announcement on 29 November 2021, the Yanfolila mine is now back in operation following the intervention by the national Mali Government clearing illegal roadblocks and restoring public order in the region.
According to the company's statement, all employees and contractors have been safely accounted for with national Mali Government personnel remaining in place as the Yanfolila mine begins ramping back up to normalized production levels.
"A more detailed Yanfolila mine operational update will be provided once the company has assessed the extent of this recent disruption," Hummingbird said in a press-release.
Hummingbird Resources (AIM: HUM) currently has two core gold projects, the operational Yanfolila gold mine in Mali, and the Kouroussa gold mine in Guinea, which will more than double current gold production when in production, scheduled for first gold pour end of Q2 2023.
