OceanaGold Corp. announced that the Haile gold mine commenced commercial production on October 1. “The achievement of commercial production is a major milestone. It was through the hard work and dedication of our workforce and unwavering support from our shareholders, local stakeholders and partners that we are at this pivotal point only less than two years after taking ownership of this world-class asset located in South Carolina,” said Mick Wilkes, OceanaGold president and CEO. “The operation is back on track following the disappointment of the second quarter.”
