Led by Ross Beaty as Chair, Equinox Gold is a well-financed, multi-asset mining company and one of the only gold producers of scale operating entirely in the Americas. The company has seven mines and is advancing four growth projects that will significantly increase production in the near term. Equinox Gold has the properties, the people and the plan to rapidly achieve its vision of producing more than one million ounces of gold annually.
In October 2021, Equinox Gold announced groundbreaking for full-scale construction of its new Greenstone Mine in Ontario, Canada. Progress is documented in the Greenstone photo gallery. First gold pour is targeted for H1 2024.
Work is underway to expand production at the Los Filos Mine Complex by developing a second underground mine, with the potential to also construct a carbon-in-leach plant to complement the existing heap leach facilities.
Permitting is underway for the Castle Mountain Phase 2 expansion that would extend the Castle Mountain mine life to 21 years and increase production to more than 200,000 ounces of gold per year
In 2021 Equinox Gold completed a positive pre-feasibility study for an expansion at Aurizona that would extend the mine life to 11 years and increase annual production by concurrently mining new underground and satellite open-pit deposits with the existing open-pit mine.
