HALIFAX, April 13, 2017 /CNW/ - GoGold Resources Inc. (TSX: GGD) ("GoGold", "the Company") announces production for the quarter ended March 31, 2017 of 422,773 silver equivalent ounces, a 5% increase over the prior quarter.
Production at Parral continued to improve, producing 278,230 silver equivalent ounces, an increase of 78,167, or 39% as compared to the prior quarter. The project continues to improve on a monthly basis, with March marking the seventh consecutive month where production has increased.
"The improvements made at Parral in late 2016 have now taken effect and we expect to see continued increases in production in the near future" said Brad Langille, CEO.
Production at Santa Gertrudis contributed 144,543 silver equivalent ounces, which is a decrease of 58,939, or 29% as compared to the prior quarter. The Company transitioned from a very high grade toll milling process in the prior quarter to a toll heap leaching process which will allow for lower grade material to be processed in the current and future quarters. The toll heap leaching option will allow us to fully evaluate heap leaching during the current feasibility work at Santa Gertrudis and continue to generate production and cash flow.
