Wesdome 2021 Q2 Production at Eagle River up 39% over Q1

Jul 14, 2021

“Q2 production at the Eagle River underground mine of 29,836 ounces was 39% higher than Q1 (21,396 ounces) driven by an 18% increase in both recovered gold grades and in Eagle River tonnes milled," Duncan Middlemiss, President and CEO commented.  

"Higher production rates from the 311 Zone stope allowed production throughput to reach over 693 tonnes per day ('tpd') during the quarter. Total H1 2021 production at the Eagle River Complex is 52,939 ounces, leaving us very well positioned to deliver on our guidance of 92,000 – 105,000 ounces.

“At Kiena, development is proceeding on track to produce our first commercial ounces of gold from this asset in Q3 2021, where guidance is 15,000 – 25,000 for H2 2021. This is a transformational time for Wesdome as we begin to realize our vision of becoming Canada’s next mid-tier gold producer.”
