Wesdome announces Q3 production of 20,008 ounces of Gold

Oct 15, 2020

Wesdome Gold Mines Ltd. is on track to meet its 2020 production guidance. The company today announced that its gold production results for the third quarter of 2020. All figures are in Canadian dollars unless otherwise stated.

“Production in the third quarter of 20,008 ounces was lower than the previous quarter due to annual planned mill maintenance from May deferred to August, and the upgrade of the hoist control system affecting the productivity of the Eagle River mine," said Duncan Middlemiss, President and CEO.

"Year to date production of 70,272 ounces leaves us well positioned to achieve our full year guidance range of 90,000 – 100,000 ounces.”

Operations at the Eagle River Complex have continued in the third quarter with several measures in place to facilitate enhanced physical distancing to limit the potential spread of the COVID-19 virus. We are now operating a total of five diamond drills, four underground and one on surface. Mishi open pit operations resumed during the quarter as planned.
