Mandalay Resources Corporation Announces Production and Sales Results for the Third Quarter of 2017

Dela

TORONTO, Oct. 10, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mandalay Resources Corporation ("Mandalay" or the "Company") (TSX:MND) announced today its production and sales results for the third quarter of 2017.

Mandalay produced a consolidated 25,819 saleable ounces of gold equivalent and sold 27,310 ounces of gold equivalent in the third quarter of 2017. For the nine months ended September 2017, Mandalay produced 96,791 saleable ounces of gold equivalent and sold 97,820 ounces of gold equivalent.

Mark Sander, President and Chief Executive Officer of Mandalay, commented, "Björkdal and Costerfield both delivered strong production and sales in the third quarter of 2017, and we remain on track to deliver our revised guidance based on full-year production from these two assets."

Dr. Sander continued, "Björkdal produced 13,233 ounces of gold in the third quarter of 2017, which was a record third quarter performance at the mine under Mandalay ownership. The mine has produced at an annualized rate of almost 60,000 ounces of gold through the second and third quarters as a result of the combined impacts of our grade control and mine debottlenecking programs. Strong mining performance was augmented by the successful commissioning of the flotation expansion project, completed on budget and ahead of schedule, which increased gold recoveries in the latter part of the quarter. Björkdal has clearly moved beyond the step changes envisioned by Mandalay at the time of acquisition and has now embarked on a program of self-generated, continuous improvement."

Dr. Sander added, "Costerfield continued its solid performance with production of 12,586 gold equivalent ounces in the third quarter of 2017. While slightly lower than the third quarter production of the previous year, production remains consistent with the previous three quarters and the current grade profile of the mine.

"Operations at Cerro Bayo remained suspended for the third quarter of 2017 as previously disclosed in our prior news releases. Cerro Bayo will remain on care and maintenance for the rest of 2017 while safety investigations are completed and Life of Mine permitting is advanced."

Dr. Sander concluded, "Our producing assets continue to perform well, and we are confident that this strong performance will continue. With this solid operational underpinning, Mandalay looks forward to growing Mineral Resources and Reserves at our current operations, establishing a safe and sound basis for resumption of mining at Cerro Bayo, and capturing accretive acquisition opportunities to which we can add significant value."
