The increased production means the operating cost guidance has also lowered 9.5% to $950 per ounce from $1,050 per ounce.
With the AUD gold price trading around record highs at $1,900 per ounce, Tomingley is producing solid cash flow.
Alkane’s managing director Nic Earner said “The team at Tomingley Gold Operations continues to perform really well, which in turn is providing a solid cash platform for the company to rapidly advance its near mine exploration.
“We look forward to seeing our first underground ore delivered shortly.”
Development of the underground operation at Tomginley continues on budget and ahead of schedule - first stoping ore is expected in August.
