Pure Gold CEO on the pivotal year ahead

Listen to Pure Gold Mining president and CEO Darin Labrenz explain how the company overcame critical challenges this year and why he views 2022 as pivotal for the PureGold Red Lake operation.

Pure Gold Mining (TSXV: PGM; LSE: PUR) says its growth ambitions are back on track following a somewhat troubled start of production at the namesake mine in Ontario’s storied Red Lake District.

President and CEO Darin Labrenz tells The Northern Miner the company expects to achieve steady-state throughput of around 1,000 tonnes per day at the planned reserve grade for the scheduled production of about 80,000 ounces a year in mid-2022.

The company is also planning a sizeable exploration program to follow up and expand on the encouraging results reported throughout the year, including near-term mine production from both the Main Ramp and the East Ramp areas.
