Despite unexpected challenges at Aim-listed Hummingbird’s Kouroussa gold mine, in Guinea, over the past year, including the fire at the national fuel depot in Conakry and the temporary suspension of operations by contractor Corica Mining Services, operations have fully resumed. “We anticipate reaching commercial production at Kouroussa in the third quarter. With this progress, the company is well-positioned for significant growth, solidifying our status as a multi-asset, multi-jurisdictional gold producer,” Hummingbird CEO and interim chairperson Daniel Betts said on June 27 in an update on the progress of the ramp-up of mining operations at Kouroussa.
