Nordgold Begins Mining at the Diguili Deposit at Lefa Mine Guinea
Nord Gold plc announced that its Lefa mine team has started mining at the new satellite Diguili deposit in the Republic of Guinea. Nordgold, through its ownership of the Lefa mine, is one of the largest gold producers in the Republic of Guinea and an important contributor to the country's economic and social development. Since acquiring the mine in 2010, Nordgold has maintained a consistent programme of exploration activities in order to increase reserves and resources and extend the life of the mine.
The Diguili deposit, which is located approximately 35 km from the processing facility at the Lefa mine, was significantly expanded by the Lefa team after a successful regional exploration programme. Using ground geophysical Induced Polarization (IP) techniques, the deposit’s proved and probable gold reserves (JORC) of 78 koz as at the end of 2020, have increased to 138 koz as at the end of March 2021.
