Wesdome Announces Second Quarter Production Results






Wesdome Gold Mines Ltd. (TSX: WDO) announces second quarter results.


Anthea Bath, President and CEO commented, “Combined gold production for the second quarter of 30,992 ounces was in line with budget. With a similar production profile expected in H2, our year-to-date performance of 59,360 ounces has us tracking to the mid-point of our 110,000 – 130,000 ounce guidance range.


At Eagle River, Q2 production of 22,845 ounces was 13% higher than Q1 as a result of record productivity from the underground mine, offsetting a slightly lower grade cycle related to mine plan sequencing.


At Kiena, despite the impacts from the regional forest fires, production of 8,147 ounces was an improvement over Q1. As previously guided, we continued to supply the mill with lower grade ore from the Martin and S50 zones to supplement the Kiena Deep material that is available to mine, which is mostly lower grade fringe material and diluted ore from previously mined areas. Importantly, we continue to prioritize the development of the production ramp, which remains ahead of schedule, positioning us well to ramp-up production in 2024.”
