PanTerra Gold Ltd. (ASX:PGI) announced that the first gold/silver doré at its Las Lagunas project in the Dominican Republic has been poured. First shipment is expected to occur midway through next month.
As quoted in the press release:
Mr Brian Johnson, Executive Chairman, said that this was a significant event for the Company, being a world first in the production of precious metals from refractory ores utilising the Albion oxidation process.
Mr Johnson also said the Las Lagunas project had proved to be difficult from both a technical and corporate perspective, but now it was in production, the immediate objective was to progressively increase gold and silver recoveries to the levels demonstrated in early pilot plant testwork.
