Crew returns to Wishbone's Honduran gold mine after wet season ends

Wishbone Gold Plc said Dec. 7 that construction crews have returned to its Honduran gold mining project to complete the buildings for housing the processing plant after weather conditions improved.

The operations in Honduras were temporarily stopped due to the worst Caribbean hurricane season on record. In mid-September, the company flagged a potential three-month delay to the planned start of production at the project.

Prior to the wet season, most of the equipment was installed, but commissioning activities were suspended as new buildings could not be completed prior to the hurricanes. The buildings are now expected to be completed in the next couple of weeks.

Additionally, Wishbone and its joint venture partners have agreed that the commissioning team from the U.S. will only fly down to Honduras once the political situation in the country stabilizes.

Due to the ongoing election dispute, demonstrations and protests are being carried out and the situation is unlikely to be stable for a few more weeks.
