:: Golden Star Reports First Gold Production From Bogoso Sulfide Processing Plant
Golden Star Resources Ltd. has announced that it has poured the first gold production from the Bogoso Sulfide Processing Plant, using the BIOX® process at its Bogoso/Prestea in Ghana. Results from this first gold pour included 228 ounces of gold attributable to the BIOX® process.
Peter Bradford, President and CEO, commented, "We are very pleased to see the first results of all our efforts at the BIOX® plant come to fruition. While we have previously had gold production from the new processing plant, that production was derived from the processing of oxide ore during the testing of the crushing, grinding and carbon in leach (CIL) sections.
The gold production announced today reflects the first gold poured from the BIOX® process of the new refractory sulfide ore processing plant and, although small in quantity, demonstrates that the process is working as it should. This is a significant milestone in our continuing evolution into a mid-tier gold producing company."
