Sino Minerals Investment Company, a company contracted by Explorator, Lda, a subsidiary of British group Xtract Resources, to explore the eastern half of the Manica concession in central Mozambique, extracted 1,703 ounces of gold in the second quarter, a 42% increase on the 1,200 ounces mined in the first quarter, the British group said.

Xtract Resources’ chief executive Colin Bird said in the release that these figures represent a quarter-on-quarter increase in output, a three-month period that was affected by the rainy season in the country.

Bird said that the first quarter was affected by the rainy season and the second quarter was affected by difficult gravel processing conditions due to the occurrence of gold in very small and dispersed pieces.

Under the terms of the contract signed with Sino Minerals, Explorator, Lda receives 25% of all gold extracted and was entitled to 426 ounces, of which only 283 ounces were sold, providing revenue of US$291,000. - Macauhub
