I caught up with Goldstone Resources CEO Emma Priestley again following the news that they have been awarded the Environmental Permit (EP) for Homase South.
This was a major milestone for the company and now pathes the way for first gold production in as little as eight weeks.
Emma explained that the ‘in-tray’ will be well and truly full for 2021 as they develop and expand the AK-HM projects with the following activities:
- Completing construction and commisisoning to pour first Gold
- Upgraded DEP (Definitive Economic Plan) to reflect increased mineable resource and a substantial up-lift in planned production from 14.5koz pa
- Further Homase drilling at additional pits and on exploration targets to further expand and increase resource confidence
- Updating the JORC resource following new drilling, historic soil sampling, auger work and historic data review
- Progressing the Akrokeri UG mine (24g/t head grade)
It’s clearly going to be busy year for the company all against the back-drop of a bullish gold environment where some commentators believe we will see North of $20koz in 2021
At an $850 AIC this presents some excellent margins on the the gold production with nice leverage to gold as they ramp up the production.
I hope you find the interview useful and look out for further SpongeCasts!
