Management comments


  “I would like to thank our employees, consultants and contractors who have contributed to this significant achievement. The start of gold production at Hillgrove
represents a material step in our strategy to build a multi-asset operating business focused on base and precious metals.

“Red River completed the Hillgrove Gold Mine acquisition in August 2019 for A$4 million in RVR shares, and we decided that the best way to bring this project back into production through treating material from the Bakers Creek stockpile before resuming underground operations, with methodical permitting, refurbishment and upgrade activities to execute our strategy.

“I look forward to updating the market as we increase gold production from the Bakers Creek Stockpile in Stage 1 before we move to the full restart of UG production in Stage 2, producing gold, gold concentrate and goldantimony concentrate.”
