LUNDIN GOLD REPORTS Q1 2024 PRODUCTION OF 111,572 OUNCES OF GOLD

 

 

 

 

 

Lundin Gold Inc. (TSX: LUG) (Nasdaq Stockholm: LUG) is pleased to report first quarter 2024 gold production of 111,572 ounces from its Fruta del Norte gold mine in southeast Ecuador. Of the total quarterly gold production, 73,964 oz were produced as concentrate and 37,608 oz as doré. During the same quarter in 2023, the Company produced 140,021 oz of gold.

 

In the first quarter of 2024, the mill processed 413,596 tonnes at an average throughput rate of 4,545 tonnes per day, the average grade of ore milled was 9.5 grams per tonne, and average recovery was 88.3%. These results provide a strong foundation for meeting our production guidance of 450,000 to 500,000 oz for 2024.

 

Ron Hochstein, President and CEO commented, “2024 is off to a solid start, with strong production in line with our expectations. The Phase 2 Plant Expansion Project is firmly underway, and on track for year-end completion. Importantly, we do expect 2024 production to be weighted to the second half from increasing grades and recoveries in the coming quarters. With this first quarter performance, we have put ourselves in a great position to meet production guidance for 2024.
