Auriant Mining AB
Auriant Mining AB (publ.) publishes 12m 2020 operational update
Tardan Operations and Production
Total 12m 2020 gold production was 953 kg (30,629 oz) , an increase of 50% compared to 635 kg (20,407 oz) in 12m 2019.
During 2020, the Company’s main source of ore was the Pravoberezhniy deposit. Total stripping works amounted to 902 thousand m3. Ore mined amounted to 387 thousand tonnes with an average grade of 2.42 g/t (total gold in ore was 937 kg). In 2021, the Company will continue mining the Pravoberezhniy deposit.
In 2021 the Company will also undertake stripping works on Ore zone #3 and Ore body #26 of the Tardan deposit in order to secure access to ore on these ore bodies in 2022 and 2023.
During 2020, the Company produced 12 kg (386 oz) of alluvial gold at Solcocon compared to 54 kg (1,730 oz) in the previous period. This was due to the late start of alluvial production (August 2020 vs May 2019) because of the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic. This production is 100% outsourced.
Follow up on CIL Project
After start up in November 2019, the newly constructed CIL plant achieved projected throughput per working hour (50 t/hour) and gold recovery rate (91%) which have continued to be achieved throughout the full year of 2020.
Heap leach operations were discontinued at the end of December 2019. As a result, the Company didn’t crush any ore or produced any gold from the heap leach in 2020.
