Dundee achieves 1st gold at Krumovgrad mine in Bulgaria

Dundee Precious Metals Inc. produced the first gold concentrate from its Krumovgrad mine in Bulgaria, according to a March 14 release.

The milestone was achieved following the processing of 650 tonnes of ore from the Ada Tepe deposit at a rate of about 100 tonnes per hour.

The company said it will ramp up the processing plant shortly to achieve a 105 tonnes per hour throughput and an 85% gold recovery rate.

Dundee said it already spent US$147 million on the project, which is 97% complete as of Feb. 28. The company maintained its capital cost forecast of between US$164 million and US$166 million.

Krumovgrad is expected to produce an average of 100,000 ounces of gold contained in concentrate per year for the first five years of production, with a life of mine average of about 85,000 ounces at a cash cost of US$404/oz.
