Highlights

Kalsaka/Sega is a producing gold mine in Burkina Faso operated by Amara Mining (90%).  First gold was poured at the mine in 2008 and it entered commercial production in mid 2009.  Kalsaka's life of mine was extended through the acquisition of the neighbouring Sega Gold Project in May 2012.  Ore from Sega is trucked 20km to Kalsaka and processed on the Kalsaka heap leach plant.  

Amara completed a Preliminary Economic Assessment and fully permitted the project in 16 months, a rapid timeline for bringing a project into production.  Trucking from Sega began on 16 September 2013 and processing commenced in late September 2013, with the first ounces of gold from Sega recognised in the Q3 2013 results.

Kalsaka/Sega produced 42,348 ounces of gold in 2013 and is expected to produce 60,000-70,000 ounces of gold in 2014.

The other interests in the project are held by the government of Burkina Faso (10% non-dilutable, free-carried).
