WESDOME ANNOUNCES 2019 FIRST QUARTER PRODUCTION OF 19,010 OUNCES OF GOLD PRODUCED

.

Wesdome Gold Mines Ltd. has released its gold production results for the first quarter of 2019.

,

Duncan Middlemiss, president and chief executive officer, commented: “We had an excellent quarter in terms of grade, and we are tracking very well towards our stated first half guidance of 31,000 ounces to 35,000 ounces, having produced 19,010 ounces. Grades were positively impacted due to early mining of the high-grade 303 lens. We will report on cost metrics, along with our first quarter financials; however, with gold sales and production ahead of budget, we expect these performance measures will be better than our first quarter budget. Accordingly, our cash position stood strong at the end of the quarter at $27.8-million. With our 2019 production and cost guidance announced earlier this year and at current gold prices, we anticipate to fund out our 2019 exploration and development programs at both the Eagle River and Kiena complexes through internal cash.”
