Vancouver, BC / TheNewswire / January 16, 2019 - NORDIC GOLD INC. (TSX-V: NOR) ("Nordic" or the "Company") today announced that it has produced a total of 145.3kg of dore (4,100.22 ounces of gold) since the first pour on 30th November 2018.
38,5kg dore were produced at the 1st pour (1,028.91oz of gold) and 78kg of dore (1,981.3oz gold) was produced in December 2018, resulting in total 2018 production of 116.5kg of dore (3,010.2 oz of gold). To date, production in 2019 is 39.7kg of dore (1,090oz).
Processing operations were shut down for planned maintenance. Certain parts of the mill liners were unavailable at start up, however it was decided to press ahead and produce gold. This decision was made to improve cash flow and a maintenance shutdown was planned accordingly. Gold sales provided $5,172,323 of additional cash.
The plant shut down ran from Tuesday 8th January 2019 to Monday 14th January 2019. During the shutdown 60,000 tonnes of high-grade ore was stockpiled.
Michael Hepworth, President and CEO of Nordic said: "The team at the mine has done an excellent job of restarting the mine. We now need to work towards building a profitable business. The next few months will be critical as we ramp up production. As with any mine start up there are many adjustments required to optimise performance and it will be several months before we reach optimal performance."
Nordic also announced the resignation of David Forest as a director. Mr Forest resigned so as to avoid potential conflicts with other activities. The company thanks him for his service to the company and wishes him well in future endeavors.
