Dateline Resources (DTR) has provided a production update of its saleable gold concentrate from the Gold Links mine in Colorado, US.

To date, the company has produced 12 tonnes of saleable gold concentrate from its mine.

Assay results recorded an average of 1578.06 g/t silver and 923.42 g/t gold of the first three tonnes.

A bigger sample size has been collected from 11 bags of concentrate including the first three and have been split equally to be assayed by two separate labs, with results to be reported once they are received.

The company trucked ore from the Gold Links mine and processed it at the Lucky Strike Mill which operates on a 24-hour basis for four days per week using mostly diluted development ore.

“The amount of concentrate produced to date has been done on a limited work week,” Managing Director Stephen Baghdadi said.

“We expect production to increase substantially once we start milling on a 24/7 basis.”

“Whilst we have reached this first production milestone, we have much more to achieve at Gold Links as we install additional processing capacity and ramp up production over the remainder of 2022.”

Dateline has entered into an equipment supply agreement with Komatsu USA for the
supply of a fleet of new and near new mining equipment for Gold Links.

The first three items were delivered in April and the remaining two items will be delivered in late May and June.

Most of the commissioning activities on the mill were undertaken using low to medium-grade development ore.

The newly acquired 250 tonnes per day (tpd) mill and associated flotation circuit is in the process of being installed and expected to be operational in June 2022.

Milling at the Lucky Strike is wholly owned by Dateline and will commence operations on a 24/7 basis in May 2022.

DTR shares were up 8.33 per cent, trading at 13 cents as of 3:42 pm AEST.
