2018 production above target at mine

 

March 14, 2018



It’s been a good start to 2018 at the Barrick Golden Sunlight Mine.

At the Community Transition Advisory Committee Meeting last week, Mine General Manager Dan Banghart said that after the first two months they are above their target for the year.

He stated that while the February production of 4,738 ounces was 400 below the target for the month, they are still 120 ounces ahead for 2018 and this is encouraging. Banghart added the underground tonnage is also on plan for the year and the grades of ore from the underground have improved.

Banghart told committee members there are currently 52 Barrick and one Regional Barrick employee at the mine and there has also been an increase in contract and temporary employees at the mine with the number rising to 85. Banghart attributed the rise to drilling activities at the site.

The next CTAC meeting is scheduled for April 12 at 8 a.m. The meetings take place in the Borden’s Building Conference Room.
