David Keough, Crocodile Gold’s Chief Operating Officer:
“The ore processed at the Company’s Union Reefs Mill was 20% above the tonnes processed in January 2011, which reflects measures taken to minimize processing downtime associated with the wet season as well as a lower than normal start to the Monsoons which occur yearly from November to May.”
