“Solid operating performance at Mercedes and South Arturo during the third quarter should allow us to meet the upper end of our 2017 annual production guidance,” stated John Begeman, Executive Chairman of Premier. “Despite having already surpassed original production expectations, recent definition drilling at South Arturo indicates the potential to continue mining the Phase 2 open pit, and studies supporting further development, including the underground extension of the Phase 2 Pit (El Nino) and two additional open pits are ongoing.”
