Mr. Robert Baldock, the CEO and President of Monument stated: “The quarter four production results from Selinsing Gold Mine continue the trend of steady plant operation with increased mining tonnage.
The Company’s fiscal 2011 gold production result of 44,438 ounces represents an 11% increase on our annual budget. This gold production was derived from an annual processing plant throughput of 351,999 tonnes with a gold processing recovery rate of 92.9%. Encouragingly, the recovery rate represents a 7% increase on the projected rate of 87.0% reported in the NI43-101 report published in November, 2007 by Snowden.”
