Leagold Mining Corp. (LMC:TSX.V; LMCNF:OTCQX) announced in a news release it achieved revised 2018 production guidance of 295,000–305,000 ounces by producing at total of 302,550 ounces from its quartet of mines. "2018 was a transformative year for Leagold, as we evolved from a single mine operator into a diversified group with four mines in two countries," CEO Neil Woodyer said in the release.
"In Mexico, the Los Filos mine demonstrated significant production growth with 25,404 oz produced in December as gold recovery rates are normalizing and resulting in a new record quarterly production of 58,201 oz since our acquisition of the mine in April 2017," Woodyer added.
Gold production in 2018 from each mine, from most to least, was: Los Filos, 195,362 ounces; Fazenda, 46,668 ounces; Pilar, 31,122 ounces; and RDM, 29,398 ounces.
Management forecasts the full year 2018 all-in sustaining cost (AISC) will be around $979 per ounce, the level at which it was at the end of Q3/18.
The gold miner will report full 2018 financial and operating results in mid-March. Next week, it will release results of studies concerning a Los Filos mine expansion and subsequently, 2019 gold production and AISC guidance. "Leagold is well positioned to deliver increased production and cash flow in 2019," Woodyer stated.
