Commenting on the results, Aris Mining CEO Neil Woodyer noted that company produced 50,903 ounces of gold during 1Q 2023 at Segovia and also at its Marmato mine in Caldas, Colombia.

“Our current focus is on completing the final steps for permitting the Marmato Lower Mine expansion project and planning for construction expected to commence in mid-2023,” according to Woodyer.

The company sold 49,158 ounces of gold during the latest quarter, at an average realized price of US$1,869 per ounce.

The Segovia raw-ore processing facility averaged 2,097 tons per day in April 2023 and “remains on track to achieve 2023 production guidance of 200,000 to 230,000 ounces” of gold, according to the company.
