RNC Minerals (TSX: RNX) is pleased to announce consolidated gold production of 8,239 ounces for the month of September from its Beta Hunt and Higginsville mines in Western Australia. This is the third month of consistent production following the acquisition of Higginsville and brings total gold production for the third quarter of 2019 to 24,216 ounces. These figures do not include the estimated 1,750 ounces of coarse gold recovered from the Beta Hunt Mine in late September (see RNC news release dated September 24, 2019).
Paul Andre Huet, Chairman & CEO, commented: “September gold production of 8,239 ounces continues to demonstrate a strong production rate from our Western Australian assets. We are focused on delivering steady gold production from our two mines and are extremely pleased with this performance following our transformational acquisition of the Higginsville mine and mill in June. Our third quarter results are the direct result of the new team we put in place coupled with our newly outlined gold-focused strategy at RNC, and we look forward to continuing to deliver steady production. I would like to thank our teams at both Beta Hunt and Higginsville for their outstanding performance thus far as we continue to integrate the two operations into one unit. The future looks bright; we need to maintain the momentum and aggressively reduce costs on all levels
Material processed during September was mostly comprised of Beta Hunt, Baloo Stage I and a small amount of Mt. Henry stockpile material. The 1,750 ounces of high-grade coarse gold recovered in late September is expected to be included in October production once the gold has been poured into dore bar or sold.
