:: First Gold Poured at New Bissa Mine in Burkina Faso
Nord Gold N.V., an independent, internationally diversified, pure-play gold producer strategically focused on emerging markets, announced in January that construction of its Bissa Mine in Burkina Faso is now complete and gold production has begun.
Philip Baum, Chairman of Nordgold commented: “First gold production from the Bissa Gold Mine is a very important milestone for us. We have seen the project completed through from start to finish in just 15 months, ahead of schedule and on budget. It clearly demonstrates our team’s ability to develop these significant projects and will serve to accelerate our organic growth for the benefit of all stakeholders. Bissa has the potential to be a major gold producing asset and it forms a key part of Nordogold’s growth strategy alongside the Company’s other leading development project - Gross in Russia. We expect that the first ore from Gross will be treated at our Neryungry mine facility by the end of 2013."
