- Vision to build a multi-asset gold production company in Scotland.

Scotgold Resources CEO, Phil Day, said: “It’s been a transformative time for Scotgold which has seen the team work determinedly to deliver on our targets and maximise value at our flagship Cononish mine. The 2H CY21 saw us lay the foundations for growth by implementing initiatives to increase Cononish’s gold recoveries and in turn improve the gold production profile of the mine. During the past quarter, we have been focused on preparing the access to the second cut and fill stope at Cononish and I’m pleased to report we accessed it as of 21 March 2022. This is a pivotal moment in our mine development plan, allowing us to access reserve mine gold grade more readily, which should see our gold grades increase significantly in-line with our mine plan during 2022 and beyond.
“I look forward to reporting on our 1Q CY22 production results in due course, as we continue to implement optimisation initiatives at Cononish to increase our gold production profile with the target of achieving a 23 500 oz/yr production run rate of gold by end of 1Q23.”
