Victoria Gold: Commercial Production Achieved
Mining operation in full commercial production
Victoria Gold’s 100%-owned Dublin Gulch gold property sits in central Yukon Territory, Canada. It’s approximately 375 kilometers north of the capital city of Whitehorse, and approximately 85 kilometers from the town of Mayo. Moreover, the Property is accessible by road year round, and is located within Yukon Energy’s electrical grid.
Victoria Gold achieved Commercial Production at the Eagle Gold Mine on July 1, 2020. Further, the Company expects gold production to continue to ramp-up to full capacity over the 3rd and 4th quarters of 2020. They also expect unit costs to decrease in line with increasing gold production. Therefore, it’s anticipated that AISC will be closer to the top end of the guidance range in the 3rd quarter before falling toward the lower end of guidance in the 4th quarter, with further improvements expected in 2021.
