Yamana Gold To Slash Expenses For Expanding Jacobina Complex In Brazil
Yamana Gold Inc (NYSE: AUY), the Canadian miner, has decided to slash the projected expenses to fund its Jacobina complex expansion in the northeastern Brazil region by 74%. The tests at the miner’s processing plant have gone much better than expected. WHILE TALKING WITH REUTERS, the company’s CEO, Peter Marrone, said that the company is hoping to increase the production capacity in the year to 230,000 ounces of gold at its mining complex. The target is set for H2-2023. At present, the capacity is 180,000 ounces.
At present, the existing plants’ tests hint towards safe management and handling of about 8,500 tonnes of raw material each day. However, the CEO said that it would be essential to build a new facility for processing. Marrone said that the plant had shown much more efficiency than the company had anticipated initially.
