Eldorado Gold (TSX: ELD) late last night announced its preliminary results for its fourth quarter and full year production figures. The company managed to meet its prior production guidance, posting a full year production figure of 528,874 ounces.
Gold production was up 34% on a year over year preliminary basis, with the company meeting its target of producing between 520,000 and 550,000 ounces of gold for the fiscal year. The fourth quarter itself managed to post a 16% year over year production increase, with the firm producing 138,220 ounces of gold in the quarter.
Guidance was largely met due to the success seen at the Lamaque property during the calendar year, which produced 44,168 ounces despite COVID-19 restrictions. The success here however was offset by Olympias and Efemcukuru, which both posted year over year declines in production figures within the final quarter, for which the company provided no commentary. Olympias also posted year over year production declines. Production at Kisladag meanwhile exceed both fourth quarter and full year production results from the year prior, despite labour availability issues.
