An announcement here by the group “’ reported by all.Africa.com “’ added that sales for the quarter had amounted to US$2.78 million (R20 million).

“We are pleased to report that New Dawn is well-positioned to continue to increase production at the Turk Mine in the coming months and quarters,” said New Dawn president and chief executive Ian Saunders.

Production at the Turk mine has increased for six months in a row, reaching 1 029 oz in September.
