January 2019 Operations
|Year over Year||2019||2018||YOY Variance|
|Deliveries:||4,499 tonnes||1,163 tonnes||287%|
|Production:||4,878 tonnes||1,492 tonnes||227%|
|Throughput:||157 tpd||48 tpd||227%|

Driving the Company’s January growth was the addition of Kori One and organic growth of deliveries to Chala One which increased by 103% YOY. The improvements at Chala One are significant as the slowest production time of the year for the small-scale mining sector is during the first quarter due to the rainy season.
Edward Kelly, President, and CEO commented, “I am pleased the Company’s operations continue to progress consistently as we realized increases across the spectrum from our yearly 2018 averages in terms of production, throughput and deliveries. We have entered calendar 2019 on a strong note and look forward to our most productive year yet.”
