Previous years have not gone quite as planned
Endomines established operations in the United States in 2018, after having been active only in Finland throughout the majority of the 2010’s. The past years have seen focus being on bringing the first asset, Friday, to production. The company has been met with challenges along the way, relating both to technical and financial challenges, but production commenced at the site in 2020. Continued technical challenges and a tight liquidity situation, however, forced the company to put the site under care and maintenance towards during the latter half of 2020.
Seeking 40k oz p.a. production within four years
Endomines is seeking to bolster its financial position to be able to restart production. With the high gold prices, plans have also been made for restarting production at Pampalo in Finland, as production was halted due to the then unfavourable gold price levels. Financial challenges have unfortunately been an inherent feature in the past years, as the company has not been able to create reliable cash flows. Now with assets that can be rapidly brought to production due to existing infrastructure and the favourable gold price levels Endomines is looking to improve production figures, targeting a production of 40k oz p.a. within four years. With the recent year track-record, however, the company in our view still has quite a lot to prove.
