Roxgold  announces a record first quarter production of 40,452 ounces of gold from the Company’s Yaramoko Gold mine located in Burkina Faso.

John Dorward, president and CEO, commented:

“We are delighted with the continued strong operating performance at Yaramoko which achieved record gold production of 40,452 ounces for the first quarter. This achievement was a result of consistent optimisation and improvement at Yaramoko across all aspects of the operation,” commented John Dorward, President and CEO of Roxgold. “During the quarter, we initiated the development of Bagassi South, our second high-grade underground gold mine, which is on schedule to add 40,000 ounces to Yaramoko’s annual production in Q4 2018.  In addition, we are continuing to execute on our extensive regional exploration program in line with our growth objectives.”

The record gold production for the quarter was driven by improved operating performance in both the mine and processing plant.
