:: Golden Queen Announces First Gold Pour
Golden Queen Mining Co. Ltd. is pleased to announce it has poured its first gold bar at its 50%-owned Soledad Mountain gold-silver project located south of Mojave, California.
‘Leaching of stacked ore has been ongoing since early February. Initial flow rates and ore porosity have been very good. We have started the Merrill-Crowe plant and are now in a position to pour doré’ reported Robert C. Walish, Jr., Chief Operating Officer.
Thomas M. Clay, Chairman and Interim Chief Executive Officer, commented, ‘Today we celebrate the hard work and determination of many long time supporters. The first gold pour is a remarkable milestone signifying the Company’s transition to a gold producer. We would like to sincerely thank all of our shareholders and stakeholders in supporting the development of the project, including our Board of Directors, management team, employees, and contractors. We are proud of what we have accomplished over the past 30 years and are excited to move closer to entering full production as a gold company in California.’
