·    Introduction of ore to the mill and the carbon in leach (“CIL”) process plant from the run-of-mine (“ROM”) pad stockpile has commenced

·    First gold production expected before the end of December

·    Commercial ramp up during Q1 2018 with a target of delivering c.130,000 ounces of gold during the first full year of production


Dan Betts, CEO of Hummingbird, commented: 


“Ore commissioning represents the final step ahead of first gold production at Yanfolila. Everybody on site is totally focused on a smooth ramp up of the plant as we look to move into the production phase.  This is a key transitional moment for Hummingbird, transforming the Company from a developer to a producer.  Our first year’s production is expected to be around 130,000oz of gold, which is projected to generate around US$70m of free cash flow at a US$1,250 gold price.  I look forward to reporting news of our first gold pour in the very near future.”
