Share

Highlights:

  • Due to the seasonality of the operations at Staroverinskaya (Solcocon), there was no alluvial gold production in the period, although 47 155 m3 of top soil was moved in Q1 2022 preparing access to the gold sands;
  • In Q1 2022, total gold sales were 292.1 kg (9,392 oz), compared to 180.0 kg (5,787 oz) in 3m 2021, an increase of 112.1 kg (3,605 oz), or 62%;
  • 96,268 tonnes of ore with an average grade of 2.44 g/t were processed through the CIL plant;
  • The CIL plant operated for 1,887 hours at an increased throughput rate of 51 tonnes per working hour (>50 t/hour) and at the targeted recovery rate of 91.2%;
  • 51,090 tonnes of ore were mined in Q1 2022, compared to 26,190 tonnes in Q1 2021, an increase of 24,900 tonnes or 95%. Stripping volume amounted to 528,200 m3 (+115,600 m3, or 28% more than in Q1 2021);
  • The average grade in Q1 2022 was 2.44 g/t, compared to 2.04 g/t in Q1 2021, an increase of 20%;

Overall, Q1 2022 production was in line with the Company’s production plan.

Others:

  • In regards to the current challenging geopolitical situation, although operations at Tardan have been unaffected, the Company has decided to widen its gold sales channels.  
    • Three new sales contracts with refinery plants were signed.
    • The Company’s subsidiary has applied for an export license to be able to sell gold outside Russia.
    • There is an option of selling gold to a new bank under a new sales contract.   

Despite the current restrictions and the challenging market environment, the Company’s subsidiaries continue to sell gold, but with discounts to the LBMA gold price that can be substantial. The effect of these discounts is to some extent mitigated by the strong gold price and the weak Ruble.
