Pure Gold Mining Inc said it is on track to hit average production of 1,000 tonnes per day in the current quarter after a record-breaking month at the Red Lake mine in August.
There was a single-day record of 1,037 tonnes of ore processed with another record for ore brought to the surface at 2,050 tonnes on 17th August.
Poured ounces of gold totalled 5,535 ounces, another new monthly record.
Pure Gold said the average daily ore throughput was 703tpd over the whole month inclusive of planned downtime to install interstage and trommel screens with 870tpd in the last week.
The mined average stope grade was 6.5 g/t gold with a processed average total mill feed grade of 5.6 g/t.
Darin Labrenz, President & CEO added: “The PureGold Mine made significant strides in August toward our goal of consistently producing 1,000 tonnes per day of high-grade ore by the end of the year.
“By completing the installation of interstage screens on the CIP tanks and a trommel screen on the SAG mill, we have increased the processing capacity of the operation by at least 25% compared to the original design capacity of 800 tpd.”
