Premier Declares Commercial Production at South Arturo
Premier Gold Mines has achieved commercial
production ahead of schedule
at the El Niño underground mine on the
company’s 40% owned South Arturo
Property located in Nevada’s Carlin Trend.
The company also reported that new definition and step-out drilling results from
the ongoing 2019 campaign are showing
better outcomes than projected. Initial
production supports this and emphasizes
the continued opportunity to expand
high-grade mineralization on the property.
Production at El Niño commenced
on budget, with high-grade ore now being
processed at the Goldstrike facility
located 8 kilometers (km) to the south.
Based on current projections, overall gold
production from South Arturo is anticipated
to surpass expectations, which called
solely for pre-production ore, for the year,
according to Premier. Development of the
Phase 1 pit is ongoing.
