PureGold Declares Commercial Production

The PureGold mine uses a combination of longhole stoping and cut-and-fill mining methods.
Pure Gold Mining Inc. achieved commercial production at its PureGold mine in Red Lake, Ontario, on August 1. Following a successful commissioning period, the PureGold mine, milling facilities, and other critical systems are now all operating in line with or rapidly approaching design capacity of 800 metric tons per day (mt/d) of ore on a sustainable basis.

“Commercial production is a signifi- cant milestone and marks the beginning of a very exciting growth phase for the company,” President and CEO Darin Labrenz said. “By combining stable gold production with the high-grade exploration potential that makes the PureGold mine so unique, we are making significant progress toward our goal of unlocking the full potential of the PureGold mine and becoming Canada’s next iconic gold producer.”

The PureGold mine uses a combination of longhole stoping, conventional cut-andfill, and mechanized cut-and-fill mining methods. Processing includes conventional crushing and grinding, followed by gravity concentration to recover free-milling gold, followed by pre-oxidation, leaching, carbon in pulp circuit and electrowinning, and refining to produce doré gold.
