Sarylakh-Surma and Zvezda

Sarylakh and Sentachan gold and antimony mines

Sarylakh-Surma and Zvezda include the Sarylakh and Sentachan mines as well as the Sarylakh Concentration Plant, located in the Yakutsk Region of the Russian Federation.  We finalised acquisition of these assets in early 2008, and treat them as a single production unit as they are run by a joint management team.  Extracted ore from the mines is processed at the Sarylakh Plant into antimony gold-bearing concentrate and gravitational gold.
