China Gold’s CSH Mine Set to Double Production China Gold International Resources Corp. (CGIR) reported that test production runs at the second 30,000-mt/d heap leaching and processing system at its Chang Shan Hao gold mine (CSH mine) in Inner Mongolia, China, have been completed, and the results are in line with expectations. The facilities entered commercial production in October.

During 2014, CGIR has gradually in-creased the CSH mining rate from 30,000 to 60,000 mt/d to meet the newly expanded processing capacity. Successful production of approximately 6,241 oz and 13,185 oz of gold was achieved in August and September, respectively, from the new facilities.
