"We made a corporate decision that the 270,000 oz Au was sufficient to get a mine of this size started, because to double that resource would have required spending another US$3-5M on exploration, and it probably would have taken another two years to get to that"
Jim Decker, EVP & Director
Antioquia Gold has commenced the development of a 500 tpd underground mine and processing plant at Cisneros to initially exploit the Guayabito and Guaico deposits, that are just 2km apart, with an initial 5-7 year mine life. The central processing circuit to be located at Guayabito will comprise gravity, flotation, carbon-in-leach and dry tailings filtration process, with a built in cyanide destruction circuit. With exploration upside potential nearby, the development of the operation will be modular to facilitate the possibility of future expansion at modest cost.
