Gold production at Trans-Siberian Gold falls 18% in Q1, annual forecast - 32,000-36,000 ounces

MOSCOW. April 21 (Interfax) - British company Trans-Siberian Gold plc (TSG), which develops the Asasha gold mine in Kamchatka Territory, saw production of refined gold fall 18% year-on-year in Q1 2017 to 7,644 ounces.

The company said in a statement that planned full year production in 2017 is 32,000-36,000 ounces. For comparison, Trans-Siberian produced 35,550 ounces in 2016.

Trans-Siberian said that extraction of new stoping ore was hindered by a lack of underground equipment, flooding at lower levels and the failure of mobile pump equipment. As a result, 40.8% of ore delivered to the plant was new stoping ore, with an average grade of 7.9 grams/tonne. In order to maintain monthly plant throughput of at least 12,500 tonnes it was necessary to process earlier run-of-mine ore which contained lower grades of gold.

The company also said that in March 2017 the reserves and resources of the Asacha deposit were re-approved by the State Commission of Reserves (GKZ) according to Russian classification. C1 and C2 gold reserves totaled 623,943 ounces with a grade of 19.8 grams/tonne and silver reserves of just under 1.477 million ounces with a grade of 46.8 grams/tonne. The cut-off grade is 2 grams/tonne. There are no remaining P1 or P2 resources.
