With a brand new 40 t articulated truck arriving in Guyana after clearing customs on Thursday, Canadian gold miner Goldsource Mines was confident that it would once more hit planned throughput rates at its flagship Eagle Mountain mine and mill over the weekend, the company said on Friday. While Goldsource was transitioning from the lower-grade (0.3 g/t to 0.5 g/t gold) commissioning pit to the higher-grade (1.4 g/t gold) Pit #4, the delay in the delivery of the 40 t articulated truck – which is required to haul ore over the 240 m distance between the pit and the mill – forced the company to suspend production and cut 2016 guidance in half.
