Gran Colombia Gold Corp. (TSX: GCM) announced today that it produced a total 18,746 ounces of gold in August bringing the total for the first eight months of 2018 to 143,621 ounces, up 36% compared to the first eight months of 2017. This brings the Company’s trailing 12-months’ total gold production as of August 2018 to 211,983 ounces, up 22% from 2017’s annual production of 173,821 ounces.

 

 

Serafino Iacono, Executive Co-Chairman of Gran Colombia, commented, “We are continuing to see strong performance from our company mines at Segovia this year with head grades averaging close to 20 g/t through the first eight months of the year. In light of our production results to-date, we now expect that our annual gold production for 2018 will range between 210,000 and 220,000 ounces.”

 

 

At the Segovia Operations, gold production in August amounted to 16,393 ounces, bringing the total for the first eight months of 2018 to 127,101 ounces, up 43% compared to the first eight months of 2017 which included the adverse impact of the civil disruption on operations in August last year. This brings Segovia’s trailing 12-months’ total gold production as of August 2018 to 187,108 ounces, up 26% from 2017. Operating activities remained steady in August and the Company now expects that the annual gold production from the Segovia Operations for 2018 will range between 185,000 and 195,000 ounces, above the top end of the Company’s initial 2018 gold production guidance of 167,000 ounces.

 

 

With the third consecutive month of better head grades, averaging close to 3.0 g/t, and processing an average of 924 tpd in the month, gold production at the Marmato mine increased to 2,353 ounces in August, bringing the total for the first eight months of 2018 to 16,520 ounces, on par with the first eight months of 2017.  This brings Marmato’s trailing 12-months’ total gold production as of August 2018 to 24,875 ounces. The Company continues to expect annual gold production from the Marmato mine in 2018 will range between 24,000 and 26,000 ounces.
