Lake Shore Gold Announces Completion of Mill Expansion

Tony Makuch, President and CEO of Lake Shore Gold, commented: "We have achieved a major milestone for our Company and its shareholders with the completion of our 50% mill expansion. Our new crushing and grinding circuit has been well constructed and includes excellent infrastructure. The expanded capabilities of our mill were highlighted in September when throughput averaged 3,370 tpd and on a number of days was significantly higher than that level. We also continued to see improvement in our grades, achieving an average of 4.6 gpt in the third quarter despite processing some low-grade material during the commissioning of our mill expansion. Our mining operations performed well, with a total of 36,000 tonnes of run-of-mine ore in stockpile at the end of September."

Porcupine Engineering Services was proud to be the engineering firm for this project."
