Gold Town documentary series
The docuseries focuses on Scotland’s first gold mine and is made up of 3 episodes. The series features the Cononish gold mine, which Scotgold Resources is focused on and had recently announced production and corporate update of.
Scotgold Resources Limited’s production and corporation update
The company recently updated that it had accessed high grade iron ore zone much faster than previously estimated at the Cononish Gold and Silver Project, located in Scotland.
The company accessed iron ore, which peaked at 40 grammes per tonne (g/t) during late June. Scotgold thus plans to continue mining at the site for 2 more months and aims to have a blended grade average above 10 g/t.
Moreover, due to June’s uninterrupted mining activity, the company increased its ore volume storage in its stockpile.
Scotgold also stated in its update about the processing performance at the Cononish site that the company plans to continue its ongoing risk analysis approach roll out in order to limit unplanned downtime caused by one off issues.
The full implementation of the approach is expected to improve the reliability of plant operations and aid in having a more consistent routine. The extra ore stockpiled is expected to be processed at the plant in due course.
Furthermore, the company plans to have its second gold concentrate shipment by the first half of this month. Scotgold Resources also plans to continue its trend of making monthly updates and will also include more forward-looking statements, including data regarding production ramp-up and 2021 gold production estimates.
