In second quarter of 2021, Anglo Asian Mining produced 695 tonnes of copper, 12,342 ounces of gold and 43,566 ounces of silver at its Gedabek mine in western Azerbaijan.
When compared to the gold equivalent production of 14,301 ounces for the corresponding period in 2020, the company’s Q2 2021 total gold equivalent output of 16,740 ounces was 17% higher.
The company said that it remains on track to achieve its annual production guidance of 48,000 ounces to 54,000 ounces of gold and 2,500 tonnes to 2,800 tonnes of copper. This total production target expressed as gold equivalent ounces at budgeted prices is between 64,000 GEOs and 72,000 GEOs.
The company noted it continues to work hard on the top-priority exploration of the new Zafar deposit, which has already demonstrated significant copper-gold drill hole intersections with encouraging copper, zinc and gold grades. Anglo Asian added that it looks forward to releasing the maiden JORC resource for the project by the end of this month or early August.
