CHINA Gold International Resources Corp plans to grow production capacity at its Jiama Copper-Polymetallic Project in Tibet Autonomous Region in two stages. At the completion of stage one, scheduled for the second half of 2014, the new mill’s daily capacity is expected to grow from 6000 tonnes to 28,000 tonnes of ore. Stage two construction of an additional 22,000 tonnes daily capacity is expected to be completed by the second half of 2015.

This expansion will grow Jiama’s daily processing capacity nearly eight times from 6000 tonnes in 2013 to 50,000 tonnes in 2015. By 2016, annual copper production is expected to reach 176,000,000 pounds.

China Gold International expected first gold output from a new crusher and ADR plant at CSH Gold Project in Inner Mongolia during the second quarter and annual gold production is expected to reach about 260,000 ounces by 2015. The ramp-up of production on the new facility with daily capacity of 30,000 tonnes is in progress.
In the production and operating outlook for 2014, China Gold said organic growth, cost management and international expansion continued to be its main goals for 2014. It says it will continue to leverage the technical and operating experience of its controlling shareholder, China National Gold Group Corporation (CNG), to improve operations at its mines, increase production and minimize costs.

To fulfil its growth strategy, the company is continually working with CNG and other interested parties to identify potential international mining opportunities, mainly outside China, which can be readily and quickly brought into production with the possibility of further expansion through continued exploration.

Gold production in 2014 is expected to be about 208,000 ounces but the company is unable to provide definitive 2014 production guidance for Jiama as the mine is dealing with reduced power supply that has affected the central Tibet region during the winter.

The Tibet Autonomous Region government and the Central Government of China are progressing a power supply development plan while the company is implementing counteractive measures to mitigate the effect of power shortages. It anticipates Jiama will be able to resume full production by the end of May. The company will then need to confirm its 2014 guidance for Jiama in mid-2014.

Gold production from CSH decreased 5.8% from 139,443 ounces in 2012 to 131,418 ounces in 2013. This was partially due to lower grades of ore mined and longer recovery periods caused by the growing height of the leaching heap. Copper production from Jiama increased 10% from 25,820,417 pounds in 2012 to 28,323,626 pounds in 2013. The third full year of increasing production for Jiama is mainly due to higher volumes of ore mined and improved recovery rates.


甲玛产能将继续增长
中国黄金国际资源有限公司计划分两个阶段扩大其位于西藏自治区的甲玛铜多金属项目的产能。第一阶段计划2014年后半年完成,届时,新选厂日产能预计由6,000吨提升至28,000吨铁。第二阶段建设的另外22,000吨/日的处理能力预期将于2015年下半年完成。

该扩建将使甲玛矿的处理能力由2013年的6,000吨/日增长近8倍至2015年的50,000吨/日。至2016年,年铜产量预期将达致1.76亿磅。

中国黄金国际资源公司预计其位于内蒙古的长山壕(CSH)黄金项目将于第二季度由新建的破碎系统和ADR厂房获得首批黄金产量,年产量预计到2015年达到约26万盎司。新设施的运用使日产量增长到3万吨。
对于2014年产量和经营前景,中国黄金国际称,内生增长、成本管理和国际扩张仍是其2014年的主要目标。公司将继续利用其控股股东 – 中国黄金集团公司(GNC)的技术和运营经验,以改善其矿山运营,提高产量和降低成本。

为实现其增长战略,公司继续与GNC和其他各利益方合作,以发现潜在的国际矿业机遇,主要是中国以外的地区,这样可以很容易并迅速地进入生产,而且有可能通过不断的勘探实现进一步的扩张。
2014年黄金产量预计达到约20.8万盎司,但是公司无法提供甲玛2014年明确的产量指引,因为该矿区正在应对冬天西藏中部地区电力短缺的问题。

西藏自治区政府和中国中央政府正在制定电力供应规划,同时,公司正在采取积极的应对措施以减少电力短缺带来的影响。公司预计甲玛将于5月底全面恢复生产。公司需要在2014年中期确认其2014年产量指引。

CSH黄金产量由2012年的139,443盎司减少5.8%至2013年的131,418盎司。部分是由于所开采矿石品位较低及堆浸场高度持续增加令回收期延长所致。甲玛铜产量由2012年的25,820,417磅增加10%至2013年的28,323,626磅。这是甲玛第三次实现全年增产,主要是由于所开采矿石数量的增加和回收率的提高所致。
