  • In September 2015, Anne Day was appointed to the Richmont executive team as Vice-President, Investor Relations, to lead the strategic execution of the Corporation’s global investor relations program.

Richmont Mines CEO, Renaud Adams, stated:

We are pleased to report another strong quarter from our cornerstone Island Gold Mine as the operation continues to deliver record production. During the quarter, we remained focused on both operational and strategic initiatives that could unlock the significant potential we see at Island Gold. Supporting that view are the results from the recent PEA on Island Gold, which identifies an opportunity to accelerate production and lower costs. We also see significant exploration potential at Island Gold and have launched two strategic drilling programs designed to test the potential of the main orebody both laterally and at depth, as well as elsewhere on our highly prospective land package.
Richmont remains uniquely positioned with a quality asset base, growing production, decreasing costs, as well as significant exploration potential yet to be realized. Our favorable Canadian dollar exchange rate exposure, growing cash flow streams and our solid balance sheet will continue to support our strategic growth plans going forward.
