Wesdome Gold produces 16,628 oz Au in Q2

2018-07-12 14:26 ET - News Release

Mr. Duncan Middlemiss reports


Wesdome Gold Mines Ltd. has released its gold production results for the second quarter of 2018 (Q2).

Duncan Middlemiss, president and chief executive officer, commented: "The first half of 2018 is off to a strong start, with 34,576 ounces produced to date, demonstrating achievability of the upper end of our guidance range of 68,000 ounces. Eagle River head grades of 11.0 grams per tonne were lower than head grades in Q1 of 12.0 grams per tonne due to stope sequencing, but were in line with internal expectations. During the quarter, underground development was completed in the high-grade 303 area in preparation for stope production in Q3. We expect production to increase in the second half of the year with the commencement of stoping from the 303 area of the underground mine.

"At the Mishi pit, gold production was higher compared to Q1, with 1,860 ounces produced (1,550 ounces in Q1). The operational initiatives implemented throughout the year have resulted in head grades of 2.7 grams per tonne in Q2, compared to 1.8 grams per tonne in Q1."
