Share

TORONTO, April 14, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mandalay Resources Corporation ("Mandalay" or the "Company") (TSX: MND, OTCQB: MNDJF) announced today its production and sales results for the first quarter of 2022.

First Quarter Production Highlights:

  • Consolidated saleable gold equivalent production and sales of 29,631 and 28,280 ounces respectively;
  • 12,384 ounces of saleable gold production at Björkdal, highest quarterly production result since Q2 2019; and
  • 12,134 ounces of gold sold at Björkdal, highest quarterly sales result since Q3 2019.

Dominic Duffy, President and CEO of Mandalay, commented:

“Mandalay’s solid start to the year puts us on course to achieve our 2022 production guidance. The continued excellent operational results demonstrate the sustainability and incremental growth at both sites with a consolidated saleable production of 29,631 ounces of gold equivalent in Q1 2022, which is higher as compared to the same period last year.

“At Björkdal, the 12,384 saleable gold ounces of production during the first quarter was our highest quarterly production result since Q2 2019. Site production was at planned levels and we expect it to continue to grow throughout the year as we focus on higher grade production areas in the mine and continue to implement dilution reduction measures.

“Costerfield achieved another solid quarter, producing 17,247 ounces of saleable gold equivalent, 12% growth compared to Q1 2021, this is mainly due to near-record gold grades of 13.5 g/t during the current quarter. Metal produced in Q1 2022 decreased slightly compared to Q4 2021, as lower than average tonnes were processed due to issues encountered with the commissioning of the new crusher at the processing facility. Only 32,206 tonnes were processed in Q1 2022, against an average of 36,370 tonnes per quarter in 2021. The new crusher is now functioning optimally, and we expect processed tonnes to remain at budgeted rates for the remainder of the year. Towards the end of the quarter, shipping delays were encountered due to COVID-19 related issues at the Shanghai port where our product travels through – we expect these delays to be temporary.

“This strong start to the year solidifies the stable operational base we have established over the past couple of years. We are looking forward to further growth and establishing a long-standing sustainable track record of performance.”

Saleable Production for the Quarter Ended March 31, 2022:

  • In the first quarter of 2022, the Company produced a total of 24,581 ounces of gold and 683 tonnes of antimony representing a total of 29,631 ounces of gold equivalent, versus 23,661 ounces of gold and 832 tonnes of antimony in the first quarter of 2021, representing a total of 28,676 ounces of gold equivalent.
  • Production at Björkdal was 12,384 ounces of gold in the first quarter of 2022 as compared to 11,855 ounces of gold in the first quarter of 2021.
  • Production at Costerfield was 12,197 ounces of gold and 683 tonnes of antimony in the first quarter of 2022 versus 11,082 ounces gold and 832 tonnes antimony in the first quarter of 2021.
