“I am delighted to report that 2018 was a year of record-breaking operational and financial performance, with TSG delivering double-digit growth in both gold production and EBITDA. Our total gold production exceeded 42koz, outperforming our production target for the year. We achieved this while further optimizing our operational efficiency and significantly reducing costs.
In 2018, we reaffirmed our position as a high grade, low cost producer with a strong track record as one of the most attractive yielding mining stocks on the London Stock Exchange.”
