Gran Colombia Gold Corp. (TSX: GCM) (OTCQX: TPRFF) announced that it expects to produce between 200,000 and 220,000 ounces of gold in 2021 from its high-grade Segovia Operations in Antioquia, Colombia. In 2020, the Segovia Operations produced 196,362 ounces of gold.


Lombardo Paredes, Chief Executive Officer of Gran Colombia, commenting on the Company’s expected production in 2021, said, “Our Segovia Operations continue to be one of the highest-grade underground global gold mines. In 2021, we are complementing our ongoing mining operations and exploration at our four existing mines with a broader regional drilling program within our mining title targeting the other 24 of 27 known veins which we are not currently mining. While the month of January typically starts off a little slower following the holidays and this year included a two-day planned shutdown of the Maria Dama plant for regular maintenance, we are maintaining our COVID-19 protocols and we are confident our mine plan will deliver more than 200,000 ounces of gold production from Segovia in 2021.”


Gran Colombia processed an average of 1,336 tonnes per day (“tpd”) in January 2021 at its Segovia Operations with an average head grade of 12.6 g/t resulting in 15,055 ounces of gold production for the month. January’s production reflected a scheduled semi-annual two-day plant shutdown for regular maintenance. Over the last 10 years, the Company has produced a total of approximately 1.3 million ounces of gold from its Segovia Operations at an average head grade of 13.8 g/t. In 2021, the Company expects that head grades will continue to average between 13 to 15 g/t over the course of the year.


With the recent closing of the Aris transaction with Caldas Gold, Gran Colombia’s equity ownership in the new Aris Gold Corporation (TSX: ARIS) (OTCQX: ALLXF) is now approximately 44.3%. As such, starting in 2021, Gran Colombia will equity account for its investment in Aris Gold and will not include the Marmato mine in its production reporting.


Monthly Dividend Declaration


Gran Colombia is pleased to announce today that its Board of Directors has declared the next monthly dividend of CA$0.015 per common share will be paid on March 15, 2021 to shareholders of record as of the close of business on February 26, 2021.
