First gold pour at Haile Gold mine for Oceana Gold
OceanaGold Corporation is pleased to announce first gold production at the Haile Gold Mine. Today, the operation poured its first gold doré bars totalling 445 ounces.
“The first gold pour at Haile is another significant achievement for the Company, the valued communities of Kershaw and Lancaster, and the state of South Carolina. This achievement marks the first gold production from the Haile Gold Mine in 25 years, and nearly 190 years since gold was first produced there.
The Haile Gold Mine is a world-class asset with leading margins, a growing resource, and significant expansion potential,” said Mick Wilkes, President and CEO of OceanaGold.
“Construction is complete and commissioning activities are progressing to plan as we move closer to putting the newest gold mine in the United States into commercial production early in the second quarter this year,”
“We are also advancing the Haile optimisation study which is expected to be complete by mid-2017,” Mr Wilkes added.
