Guyana Goldfields Inc announced that the work stoppage at its Aurora mine that began on July 2 has ended. Employees are starting to return to work in a phased approach to ensure orderliness and full production is anticipated to resume shortly. As a result of the 3 operational days lost, the Company estimates that approximately 22,500 tonnes were not processed, however, full year production guidance remains unaffected at 145,000-160,000 ounces of gold.

Mr Suresh Kalathil, SVP & COO, said that "Personnel are being re-mobilized and the site is ramping back up to normal operations in a phased and safe manner. The Company has agreed to a dialogue with employee representatives and Government authorities to resolve any outstanding issues in full compliance with Guyanese labour law."
