  • Project Overview
    The Aurora Gold Mine in Guyana was acquired by Zijin Mining in 2020. It resumed production and generated profits within the year. With a daily throughput of 7,500 tonnes, it has the capacity to produce more than 4 tonnes of gold per annum over its lifetime. Today, technical upgrading and optimization of the project are in full swing, and once completed, the project will produce over 4 tonnes of gold per annum.
