· Value of Explorator share of gold produced US$794,797
· Gold sales in period of 384 ounces
· Combined attributable revenue to Explorator from gold sales and other income for the Period amounted to US$614,257
· Fair Bride continued to progress satisfactorily
Colin Bird, Executive Chairman said: “The results for Q1 of this year were satisfactory, especially when one considers that the results were achieved during an aggressive rain and cyclone season. As at today’s date, Fair Bride production has started with the introduction of low-grade ore to commission all parts of the processing circuit. We expect that by the end of Q3 Fair Bride should be up to full commercial production. The production will build up gradually as some of the gold gets locked up in the circuit and faults are identified and rectified. I look forward to production results from Fair Bride as well as from the alluvial and the small hard rock deposits “.
