OCEANAGOLD ANNOUNCES FIRST GOLD POUR AT THE HAILE GOLD MINE IN SOUTH CAROLINA

20 January 2017

 

MEDIA RELEASE

 

(MELBOURNE) OceanaGold Corporation (TSX/ASX: OGC) (the �Company�) is pleased to announce first gold production at the Haile Gold Mine. Today, the operation poured its first gold dor� bars totalling 445 ounces.

Mick Wilkes, President and CEO of OceanaGold said, �The first gold pour at Haile is another significant achievement for the Company, the valued communities of Kershaw and Lancaster, and the state of South Carolina. This achievement marks the first gold production from the Haile Gold Mine in 25 years, and nearly 190 years since gold was first produced there. The Haile Gold Mine is a world-class asset with leading margins, a growing resource, and significant expansion potential.�

He added, �Construction is complete and commissioning activities are progressing to plan as we move closer to putting the newest gold mine in the United States into commercial production early in the second quarter this year. We are also advancing the Haile optimisation study which is expected to be complete by mid-2017.�

Commissioning activities initially commenced with the grinding and leaching circuits with mill feed from stockpiled oxide ore.  With these circuits now up and running, commissioning is now moving to the flotation and fine grinding circuits as part of the planned sequential introduction of transitional and sulphide ore into the mill.
