Endeavour’s Sabodala-Massawa marks first pour

West Africa-focused gold and silver producer Endeavour Mining has met a milestone, its first gold pour, at the Sabodala-Massawa expansion project in Senegal.

The pour was achieved on 18 April, the miner said on 29 April, both on budget and on schedule. Construction took about two years.

“We are proud to have achieved our first gold pour at the Sabodala-Massawa BIOX expansion with over 3.5 million man-hours worked with no lost time injuries,” chief executive Ian Cockerill said.

“We have commissioned the project and delivered first gold in only two years, marking the fourth capital project that we have completed in the last 10 years. All of these have been completed in two years or less, and have been delivered on schedule, on budget and with no lost time injuries. This is a testament to the quality of our projects team and the competitive advantage we have in West Africa.”

Endeavour is targeting 360,000-400,000 ounces of production this year.
