Equinox Gold has six wholly-owned mines operating entirely in the Americas. The Company is producing gold from its Los Filos Mine Complex in Mexico, its Mesquite Mine in California, and its Aurizona, Fazenda, RDM and Pilar mines in Brazil. The Company’s second California mine, Castle Mountain, is in construction with first gold pour targeted for Q3-2020.
Led by Ross Beaty as Executive Chairman, Equinox Gold’s executives and directors have decades of exploration, construction, operations and project finance experience. Collectively the team has advanced more than 50 mines through construction and into production and built many successful resource companies.
Equinox Gold is currently producing gold from six mines, with a seventh mine expected to commence production in Q3-2020. The Company is also advancing two growth projects and two expansion projects and is rapidly advancing toward its vision of producing one million ounces of gold annually.
Equinox Gold has a broad shareholder base with strategic long-term shareholders and a balanced mix of institutional, high-net-worth and retail investors. Many of Equinox Gold’s executives and directors have personally invested in the company, aligning the interests of investors and Equinox Gold’s leadership team.
With a strong treasury, cash flow from six operating mines, and a US$400 million corporate revolving credit facility, Equinox Gold is well funded to execute on its growth objectives, including exploration at a number of properties, construction of Castle Mountain Phase 1 and the Santa Luz project, and the Los Filos and Castle Mountain Phase 2 expansion projects.
Equinox Gold is focused on adding value on a number of fronts in 2020, with the Los Filos expansion underway, the Aurizona underground study and resource update targeted for mid-2020, Castle Mountain Phase 1 first gold pour targeted for Q3-2020, and exploration underway at a number of projects. Equinox Gold will also be eligible for inclusion in the GDXJ, GDX, TSX Composite and other indexes in the first half of 2020.
