The milestone comes just after the company completed the refurbishment project of the mine’s Golden Eagle mill. Both the refurbishment and the fast-tracked development of the mine were wrapped up on time and under budget.

In December, Novo was notified of its final mining approval for Beatons Creek and mobilised Iron Mine Contracting to begin development.

“This first gold pour marks over 10 years of dedicated commitment from Novo’s team and its shareholders to advance towards conglomerate gold production,” said Dr. Quinton Hennigh, president, chairman and director of Novo. 

“With approximately 14,000 square kilometres of tenure, Novo has laid a sustainable foundation upon which it plans to unlock much more conglomerate gold over coming years.” 

“Achieving first gold pour within six months of acquiring Millennium is nothing short of remarkable,” added Novo CEO Rob Humphryson. “Activities at the site are now concentrated on optimising the operation, which is expected to achieve a plant throughput rate of 1.5 million tonnes per annum.”
