TORONTO – Centerra Gold said its Kumtor and Boroo mines produced a total of 690,720 oz of gold in 2013. The Kumtor mine in the Kyrgyz Republic produced the lion’s share – 600,402 oz – and the Boroo mine in Mongolia contributed 90,318 oz to the total.

The company said it has a goal of between 595,000 and 645,000 oz for 2014. The lower target reflects a drop in 2014 starting ore stockpile inventory and a slowdown in the rate of advance to the high grade SB zone at Kumtor. Consolidated all-in sustaining cost per ounce sold will be within a range of US$875 and US$950.

Centerra is also developing the Gatsuurt gold project located near the Boroo mine in Mongolia, but any potential production from the project is not included in the company’s 2014 guidance.
