Construction on Red Eagle Mining’s San Ramon Gold Mine has been completed in q3 2016, the company has announced.

Following a 14-month construction period, the first gold was officially poured at the gold mine in November 2016.

The San Ramon Gold Mine

The San Ramon Gold Mine is part of the company’s large Santa Rosa Gold Project, located in Colombia. Gold mining in the area actually pre-dates the 17th century when it was estimated that around 30 million tonnes of gold were mined.

The San Ramon Gold Mine, a single shear zone within the Santa Rosa Gold Project has a production of around 1000 tonnes per day.

Red Eagle estimates a 2017 production of 70,000 oz.

The construction of the San Ramon Gold Mine and Mill remained within budget and on schedule within the 14-month construction period to first gold in November 2016.

The mine will employ around 160 employees.
