The month of October saw final resettlement of Boungou village residents in their new homes. Construction also continued in line with our expectations: Some 90% of the total concrete pour has now been effected, with 40% of structural steel and 20% of mechanical installation completed. Installation of the SAG mill is ongoing for expected completion in December. Erection of leach tanks is fully complete, and more than 60% of the power plant construction has already been carried out.  

In the month, the final elevation of the water storage facility embankment was made, and phase 1 of the tailings storage facility halfway completed. Ancillary and plant buildings are advancing well, with the majority scheduled for completion by year-end.

At the Boungou deposit, some 6.6 of the 18 million tonnes of pre-stripping material has now been extracted.
