Canadian gold miner Iamgold has announced a promising start to the year, reporting robust results across its operations and projects in the first quarter, positioning the company well to meet its guidance targets.

CEO Renaud Adams attributed the first-quarter success to the combination of stable operations and favourable grade reconciliation at the Essakane mine, in Burkina Faso, coupled with Westwood, in Canada, achieving its highest quarter of production since mining restarted in 2021.
