Tim Swendseid, Elevation Gold’s CEO, stated “Our second quarter production reflected some fragmentation and crusher maintenance challenges, and the majority of the ore was sourced from West Pit. Moss’s second half is forecasted to show improvement as we mine additional East Pit ore and move past the issues experienced in the first half. We remain confident in our guidance of 34,000 to 36,000 ounces of gold production for all of 2023. We have kicked-off construction of our 3A-Ph2 Leach pad, which will be completed in Q4 2023 and will provide sufficient leach pad capacity for ore production through 2025. Our collective Moss Mine team had an outstanding half in terms of safety and are well prepared to carry out improvements throughout the remainder of the year.”
