"Mining during the quarter took place from the high-grade areas. Good head grade in combination with efficient mining resulted in the highest quarterly gold production since inception of the mine. Whole year production is also very satisfactory and we passed our guidance of 800 kg with a good margin”, said Markus Ekberg, CEO of Endomines.

"Moreover, our continuous safety improvement efforts are also producing results and this was the third consequent quarter without any Lost Time Injuries at Pampalo. Our own workforce has now worked 643 days without accidents and our contractors 294 days”, comments Markus Ekberg, CEO of Endomines.

The Pampalo processing plant capacity expansion project is progressing as planned and on schedule. We do expect all installations to be completed in time before the approval from the environmental authorities. As earlier communicated the approval is expected to be received early 2013.

Endomines has applied for a capacity expansion to a maximum of 450 000 tonnes per annum but expects to operate the plant at an annual capacity of 330 000 – 380 000 tonnes per annum. Additional ore production will be mined from the Pampalo East open pit areas. Ore and waste rock mining has commenced by the contractor Lemminkäinen Oy.

As earlier announced all laboratories used by the company as well as other certified laboratories have reported serious overload problems resulting in significant delays in the assaying work. This has also affected Endomines and thus results from 2012 exploration campaign will be published when all relevant results are available. The Company intends to publish the resource and reserve update during the Q1/2013.
