Timmins Gold has extended the San Francisco gold mine life in Sonora State, Mexico, up to 2023 after completing a new Canadian National Instrument 43-101-compliant technical report. 

As per the report, the company’s gold production for this year at the mine is between 90,000oz and 100,000oz.

Gold production for next year is anticipated between 65,000oz and 70,000oz, with between 80,000oz and 85,000oz for 2018.

Timmins Gold president Arturo Bonillas said: “Over the course of the past year, we made significant reductions in costs and increased operating efficiencies, which contribute greatly to the estimated profitability of the new life of mine plan.

"The low capital requirements throughout the mine life result in very attractive all-in costs."
