AMS started at Chirano in October 2004 by constructing the Akoti by-pass road to make an access to the proposed Plant Site and to begin earth works for the AMS facilities. Mining started in January 2005 with a gradual ramp up, developing haul roads and pits to achieve 385,000 BCM a month volume target.

At present we are blasting 700,000 BCM of material and hauling 1.2 million BCM per month. There are 6 active pits and construction is in progress on the haul road to another area which will bring 3 more pits on line.
