Mining at K1 was interrupted mining twice in 2020/21 due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

At the mine, new structural supports have been installed in the development drifts (tunnels) to 160 feet, while a new compressor and the ventilation systems have been improved, said the company.

The mine is now capable of achieving 5,000 tons of production per annum.

The company added that it also continues to develop its M1 and H1 mine sites, with both having already secured an exploration license.

As previously announced, the M1 mine is expected to achieve a full production license from the Geological Survey and Mines Bureau by the third quarter of 2021. Drilling at the H1 site is in full swing with both drilling rigs in operation.
