The company said it achieved a record quarter of daily production, averaging a total of 13,415 tonnes of ore processed per day for the three months ended March 31, 2011. A total of 18,755 ounces of gold was sold during the three months ended March 31, 2011 for a total of 65,774 ounces of gold sold for the year ended March 31, 2011.
