Golden Star to reopen oxide plant at Ghana mine after 2008 closure to boost gold output

Canadian miner Golden Star Resources is set to restart its oxide plant at the Bogoso/Prestea gold mine in Ghana, according to a Reuters news report January 31, 2012 after the plant stopped operating in 2008 due to lack of oxide ore.

Citing a statement issued by Golden Star, the news wire said the plant is expected to generate up to 70,000 ounces of gold this year.

The company now expects 2012 output between 350,000 and 370,000 ounces of gold, up from 301,000 ounces it recorded in 2011 with full impact of the mill on production expected in 2012 second quarter, according to Reuters.
