Steppe Gold has announced the fourth-quarter and year-end financial results for its first year of production.
"We are very pleased to report a strong start to production at the ATO Gold Mine with operating cash flow from mine operations in 2020 of $32.6m, on revenue of $52.1m, in an approximate 9 months of production," announced Steppe Gold President and CEO Bataa Tumur-Ochir.
"Most importantly we are proud to report a zero accident safety record at the project, and our exemplary environmental record has been recognized with a 93% result on the latest environment audit," Mr. Tumur-Ochir continued.
The project now supports a planned production profile of approximately 150,000 gold equivalent ounces per year and an estimated ten-year plus mine life.
In addition, work is well advanced on the Bankable Feasibility Study (BFS) for the Phase 2 expansion of the ATO Gold mine.
The BFS, which is due for release in summer 2021, incorporates the recent resource update and a detailed series of new metallurgical work.
Steppe Gold is targeting an annual production in 2021 and 2022 of between 50,000 to 60,000 oz, followed by a transition to the fresh rock ores in 2023. Production forecasts for 2021 are dependent on a restart of leaching in April 2021 and no further delays on procurement due to COVID 19.
Steppe Gold is a precious metals exploration and development company focused on opportunities in Mongolia. The company's projects include the Altan Tsagaan Ovoo Project (ATO Project) and Uudam Khundii property in Mongolia.
