Darren Hall, President and Chief Executive Officer of Calibre, stated : “Mining from the Guapinol open pit at Eastern Borosi commenced on schedule and marks another significant milestone in Calibre’s efforts to deliver on expectations and organically grow gold production. With Eastern Borosi open pit reserves at Guapinol of 6.8 g/t gold, we remain on track to deliver consolidated production of 250,000 – 275,000 ounces in 2023, a 20% increase over 2022.

To date, 43% of the population around our Eastern Borosi operation has benefited directly from vocational training initiatives, procurement opportunities or employment.
“As part of our 2023 exploration program, Calibre has two rigs drilling within the 176 km 2 Eastern Borosi land package, which hosts numerous low sulphidation gold-silver vein deposits and targets and strong potential for discovery of new zones and expanded resources.”
