Anaconda Announces First Gold Pour at Pine Cove
TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - July 23, 2008) - Anaconda Mining Inc. (\"Anaconda\" or the \"Company\") (TSX:ANX), is pleased to report that on July 16, 2008, the first gold was poured at its Pine Cove Gold Mine (\"Pine Cove\") in Baie Verte, Newfoundland. The pour yielded three gold dore bars with a collective weight of 140.43 oz. As previously announced (see Anaconda Press Release dated July 3rd, 2008), mine / mill commissioning and optimization studies are ongoing. Mill throughput is approaching engineered design specifications as gold recovery at each stage of the mill circuit reaches acceptable levels as per plant design. Currently, the inventory of broken ore, including the fine ore stockpile, coarse ore stockpile and broken ore in the pit, measures 26,141 tonnes at a calculated grade of 3.68 g/t.
On achieving this milestone Lewis Lawrick, President and CEO commented: \"we are thrilled to be announcing our first gold pour at Pine Cove and I congratulate the team under the leadership of General Manager Allan Cramm for their commitment to this project. We look forward to ramping up to full production at this time of record high gold prices.\"
Construction at Pine Cove began in June 2007 and was completed within established capital budget allocations, despite severe winter construction conditions. Pine Cove is designed to process 500 tonnes of ore per day and produce approximately 16,000 ounces of gold annually from probable reserves of 2.3 million tonnes of ore grading 2.8 grams of gold per tonne (207,000 ounces of contained gold). Inferred resources at Pine Cove total 0.067 million tonnes of ore grading 2.4 grams of gold per tonne (5,200 ounces of contained gold).
