As previously guided, production for the first quarter of 2019 was expected to reflect the mining sequence and production schedule which called for lower grade in the first quarter. Scheduled maintenance activities were also completed in the first quarter including mill liner change and rebuilds of the mining fleet. In addition, the company experienced downtime due to grid power outages and unplanned maintenance to the transformer at Touquoy. The company is pleased to reiterate its annual production guidance for 2019 of 92,000 to 98,000 ounces of gold at all-in-sustaining costs between $695 and $755 per ounce ($521 (U.S.) to $566 (U.S.)/ounce at 0.75 U.S./Canadian dollar exchange).
Maryse Belanger, president and chief operating officer, commented: "We are pleased to have another winter almost behind us. The performance this quarter reflects both the challenges encountered and our production planning for operations. Overall production fell within the expected range for the conditions that were experienced. The team anticipates meeting annual guidance based on recent trends and planned activities for the remainder of the year."
Furthermore, the company plans to release its first quarter 2019 financial results on May 14, 2019, premarket.
