TRX Gold Declares Commercial Production of 1,000+ TPD Processing Plant






TRX Gold Corporation (TSX:TNX) (NYSE American:TRX) is pleased to report the declaration of commercial production of the 1,000+ tonne per day processing plant at the Buckreef Gold Mine, effective November 2022.


The declaration of commercial production for the 1,000+ tpd processing plant at Buckreef Gold in Tanzania is made after successful construction, commissioning and ramp-up of processing to a steady state throughput of 1,000+ tpd. The processing plant has now been running consistently at or above nameplate capacity since October 2022 with gold recoveries exceeding 90%. All major construction activities have been completed and Buckreef Gold has demonstrated its ability to sustain ongoing production levels. The mine will continue to seek opportunities to improve efficiencies and increase throughput with the goal of exceeding design nameplate capacities.


Highlights include:

  • Construction, commissioning and ramp-up of the 1,000+ tpd processing facility was completed on schedule and to budget;
  • Throughout construction, safety has been a top priority for the Company. Site management, along with the whole workforce are thanked for making safety their priority, and for achieving this key milestone ‘Lost Time Injury free’;
  • Gold production in October exceeded budget with 2,200 ounces of gold poured during the month (22% above plan); and
  • Gold recoveries in October exceeded budget and were 91.1% (against a plan of 90%).


“The Board, Executive Management and I are very excited to have reached this remarkable milestone in the Company’s history,” noted Stephen Mullowney, CEO. “During the last 12 months, the Buckreef Gold team have delivered excellence in safety and built not only a great 1,000+ tpd processing plant, but also a track record for achievement – this is the second successful build during this period. While we celebrate this goal, we are also ready to advance the growth of the business with improvement initiatives, exploration and ever-increasing production. TRX Gold and Buckreef Gold are currently evaluating a potential further near-term expansion of the processing plant. Let’s keep growing!”
