Table 1. Monthly Gold production* for Q2 in 2017 and 2016
*– Final adjusted production data for April to June 2017
Gold production for the first 6 months of 2017 amounted to 35,310 oz (33,332 oz. in 2016) an increase of 6%. This is below our planned production target due to a lower availability of ore which was the result of an extreme weather event in 2017 (see press release dated June 19, 2017 and April 20, 2017). We expect that gold production will now continue to trend higher over the next 6 months.
Jean Martineau, Dynacor’s CEO and President commented “We have achieved solid operational results and production is steadily increasing at our new Veta Dorada plant in Chala. We expect this trend to continue into Q3 and Q4. I am particularly pleased to report that the metallurgical yield is now better than at our old plant and in fact reached an all-time record during Q2-2017.”
