Victoria Gold: Eagle Gold Mine Q1 2024 Operational Highlights

 

 

 

 

 

Victoria Gold Corp. (TSX:VGCX) produced 29,580 ounces of gold during the first quarter of 2024.

 

Mr. John McConnell, President and CEO commented, “For the second consecutive year, we have stacked ore on the heap leach pad through the winter. While quarterly gold production is down year over year, the summer and fall seasons are our strongest operating periods and we expect to achieve 2024 gold production guidance of 165,000 to 185,000 ozs and cost guidance of US$1,450 to US$1,650 per oz of gold sold.”

Q1 statistics may be subject to immaterial reconciliation and rounding variances.

 

Tonnes of ore mined and stacked on the heap leach pad in Q1 2024 is in line with ore mined and stacked in Q1 2023. Gold production in Q1 2024 was lower year-over-year due to lower grades related to mine sequencing of the Eagle orebody, the timing of placing stacked tonnes under leach, and lower than planned stacking rates in Q4 2023. Both gold grade and metallurgical recovery continue to reconcile well against the Eagle reserve model.
