Second Gold Pour at Kenyan Gold Project
Goldplat plc, the AIM quoted gold producer, is pleased to announce that it has poured its second gold from its wholly owned Kilimapesa Gold Mine in Kenya ('Kilimapesa'), following the successful commissioning of the Elution Plant. The second smelt produced an 11.4 kg (366 ounces) gold dore bar (approximately 75-77% purity with the balance comprising circa 20% silver plus unspecified impurities), which has now been sold to Rand Refinery Limited in South Africa. The Company will continue to smelt and produce gold from existing stockpiles at Kilimapesa on a weekly basis and once all stockpiles have been depleted, smelting and gold production from the mine will occur on an ongoing monthly basis.
Goldplat CEO Demetri Manolis said, "We are delighted to report on our second gold pour from our Kilimapesa mining project in Kenya. Smelting and production of gold from our existing stockpiles of loaded carbon is continuing in line with management's expectations with gold sales positively impacting our bottom line in FY2012."
