Q2 2019 has been a very strong quarter with the Asanko Gold Mine setting new records in production, sales and revenue. This is particularly impressive given we are in the final stages of waste mining the Cut 2 pushback at Nkran. The Cut 2 pushback will essentially be finished in Q3 2019, marking the end of our investment program, and will enable the mine to focus on cash generation” commented Greg McCunn, CEO. “We remain on track to achieve our 2019 annual production guidance of 225,000 to 245,000 ounces.”
