Centamin increases fourth-quarter underground, openpit production

Egypt-focused gold miner Centamin increased gold production at its Sukari mine by 58% year-on-year to 107 549 oz for the fourth quarter of 2021 as a result of mining higher-grade material from the openpit and underground operations.

As for openpit mining, with a focus on the Stage 5 North and Stage 4 West areas, the company moved waste and ore totalling 30.4-million tonnes – a 43% increase year-on-year, driven by scheduled increased material movement and improved operating efficiencies and productivities.
