Mining & Exploration
The Company’s two operating gold mines are Twangiza, which produced 135,500 oz Au in 2015, and Namoya, which entered commercial production in January 2016 and has production targets of 9,000 to 10,000 oz Au per month. Multiple new exploration targets have been identified on both the Twangiza and Namoya properties. Meanwhile, exploration is ongoing at the fully permitted and licensed projects of Kamituga and Lugushwa.
In addition to these four licensed projects, Banro also holds 14 exploration permits covering 2,638 square kilometres and located on highly prospective ground between its Twangiza and Lugushwa projects. Applications for additional exploration permits contiguous to and located between the Company's Lugushwa and Namoya projects, along with areas south of Twangiza, are pending.
To date, only 12 percent of the concession area has been explored using modern exploration techniques.
