Pahang, Malaysia (PRWEB) June 24, 2014
Verde Resources, Inc. (OTCQB: VRDR) expects production to hit 300 gold ounces monthly for the second half of 2014. The projection follows current installation and modification works on three additional production plants which are proceeding on time. With three additional production plants in operation, the alluvial production facility will have a total 1,500 tons per day of ore processing capacity. This would be about twice the current average rate of ores processed for the five-month period between January and May of 2014, thereby providing opportunity for the Company to meet its annual production target for 2014.
As the Company acquires more experience in the operation at Site IV-1 of the Merapoh Gold Mine, the technical team at Verde Resources is in the process of identifying cheaper and viable methods of recovery. Verde Resources has also worked together with external consultants to optimize the existing operation and design modification to the production lines. Mr. Wu Ming Ding, President of Verde Resources said, "The Company is making every effort to increase production, improve economies of scale and reduce unit operating costs. While we are focused on continuing production growth at Site IV-1 of the Merapoh Mine, the Company is concurrently exploring opportunities for regional expansion.”
Mr. Wu concluded, “As we progress through 2014, we are well positioned to execute our expansion plan which includes further exploration of the mine site for prospects of lode gold. The Company is confident that Merapoh Mine will be an incredible investment in unlocking shareholder value which is expected to continue to compound over each of the coming years.”
