  • Project Overview

    Rosebel is one of South America’s largest open-pit gold projects. The mineralized trend remains open on strike and at depth, with significant potential to add further gold reserves.

  • Construction and Debottlenecking

    Both pits of the project - the Rosebel mine and the Saramacca mine - are in production, with efforts underway to accelerate Saramacca to full production. The processing plant is designed to process 12.5 million tonnes of soft rock or 7.7 million tonnes of hard rock per annum. The concentrator debottlenecking program is expected to be completed in the second half of 2023. After reaching design capacity, the project will produce 10 tonnes of gold per annum.

    Production at the mine site has been continuing after the completion of Zijin’s acquisition.

  • M&A

    In February 2023, Zijin Mining completed the acquisition of a 95% interest in the Rosebel Gold Mine.
