Avocet Mining PLC announces first gold production at its Inata mine in Burkina Faso on 20 December 2009.
This milestone marks the commencement of production and commissioning at the Inata gold mine with an anticipated six month ramp up to full production. Inata’s gold production is expected to increase to over 10,000 ounces per month by July 2010. During the plant commissioning stage monthly gold production will build up to this level and on occasions be intermittent. Total production in 2010 is expected to be between 90,000 and 110,000 ounces. The Inata gold mine is currently forecast to produce an average of over 120,000 ounces per year during an initial seven year mine life.
