In response to a falling gold price, Perseus adopted a production strategy aimed at minimising capital investment. This meant that part of the mill feed for the period was drawn from existing low grade ore stockpiles in preference to targeting higher grade ore from new mining areas that required investment of significant amounts of capital to pre-strip waste.

Goldquest Mining Corp.
