Highlights:

  • In H1 2022, hard rock gold production amounted to 421.9 kg (13,566 oz), compared to 446.3 kg (14,349 oz) in H1 2021, a decrease of 5%, or 24.4 kg (783 oz);

  • Alluvial gold production amounted to 1.2 kg (39 oz) compared to 8.6 kg (277 oz) a decrease of 86%, or 7.4 kg (239 oz) because of delayed start of the gold sands mining caused by late ground defrosting.

  • In H1 2022, total gold sales were 435.5 kg (14,000 oz), compared to 391.8 kg (12,598 oz) in H1 2021, an increase of 43.7 kg (1,402 oz), or 11%;

  • 192,573 tonnes of ore with an average grade of 2.46 g/t were processed through the CIL plant;

  • 177,690 tonnes of ore were mined in H1 2022, compared to 159,000 tonnes in H1 2021, an increase of 18,690 tonnes or 12%. Stripping volume amounted to 1,103,402 m3 (+329,602 m3, or 43% more than in H1 2021);

  • The average grade in H1 2022 was 2.46 g/t, compared to 2.24 g/t in H1 2021, an increase of 10%;

Overall, H1 2022 production was in line with the Company’s production plan.

Other updates:

The Company’s subsidiaries continue to sell gold with discounts to the LBMA gold price, as previously reported.  The discounts have risen following the decision of G7 to stop gold import into its countries.  This together with the LBMA gold price decrease and strengthened Ruble are factors currently negatively affecting the Group’s financial performance.

The Company has opened a new bank account with an international bank, thus having secured a replacement for its previous bank account, frozen as a result of termination of business operations of the previous bank in Austria.
