The Syama Complex, located in the south of Mali, West Africa approximately 30km from the Côte d’Ivoire border and 300km southeast of the capital Bamako, comprises the Syama Underground Mine and the Tabakoroni Open Pit Mine.

The Syama Underground Mine is owned by Société des Mines de Syama S.A. (SOMISY). Resolute has a 80% interest in SOMISY and the Government of Mali has a 20% interest in SOMISY.

The Syama Complex is a large-scale operation which comprises two separate processing plants: a 2.4Mtpa sulphide processing circuit and a 1.5Mtpa oxide processing circuit. The sulphide circuit comprises three-stage crushing, milling, flotation, roasting, calcine leaching and elution with ore sourced from the Syama Underground Mine and stockpiles. The oxide circuit comprises conventional crushing, SAG milling and leaching, with ore sourced from the Tabakoroni Open Pit Mine.

Resolute is targeting site production of 300,000oz of gold annually at a Life-of-Mine All-In Sustaining Cost of less than US$750/oz from a Mineral Resource base of 8.2Moz of gold.
