The company has admitted that the government-ordered shutdowns due to COVID-19 has presented significant problems, but that the company is confident it can overcome them.
The company has already completed the majority of the infrastructure on site.
Roads, earthworks and the erection of major buildings on site to facilitate mining operations have been completed.
The last round of construction is the installation of new processing equipment in the grinding circuit, gravity circuit and gold room.
Pure Gold reiterated that the mine was within months of pouring.
Pure Gold CEO, Darin Labrenz, said the outbreak of COVID-19 has changed the way the company operates.
“We are closely monitoring the rapidly changing COVID-19 pandemic situation and will adjust plans and schedules as necessary based on the safety guidelines outlined by the Provincial and Federal governments as well as the Public Health Agency.
“In August 2019 we announced a $US90 million project finance package and construction decision for the Pure Gold Red Lake Mine., based on our robust 2019 feasibility study, completed when gold traded at US$1275 per ounce,” he said.
Pure Gold insists the mine is fully funded to production, and it will start on schedule.
