Commentary

Gold production for the first half of 2019 at 21,889 oz remains firmly in line with guidance estimates to reach 40-44,000 oz for the full year. Trans-Siberian Gold is now mining at consistently higher grades, at an average of 8.4 g/t for Q2 and 8.6 g/t for H1 and we continue to target higher grades.

During H1 2019, a total of 22,062 oz of gold was sold at an average price of $1,312/oz. Gold recoveries during the quarter remained flat at 95.3%.

During the period we experienced some anticipated downtime at the mill to allow for some planned refurbishment, which has now been completed, and we are pleased to note that the downtime was absorbed with very little impact.

Unaudited interim financial results for H1 2019 will be published in September 2019.

Disclaimer

This announcement contains "forward-looking statements" - that is, statements related to future, not past, events. In this context, forward-looking statements often address our expected future business and financial performance, and often contain words such as "expects," "anticipates," "intends," "plans," "believes," "seeks," "should" or "will." Forward-looking statements by their nature address matters that are, to different degrees, uncertain. For us, uncertainties arise from the behaviour of financial and metals markets, fluctuations in interest and/or exchange rates and metal prices; and from numerous other matters of national, regional and global scale, including those of a political, economic, business, competitive or regulatory nature. These uncertainties may cause our actual future results to be materially different that those expressed in our forward-looking statements.
