Gran Colombia produces 220,194 oz Au in 2020. Had $90M cash

2021-01-13 07:24 ET - News Release

Mr. Lombardo Paredes reports

GRAN COLOMBIA REPORTS FOURTH QUARTER AND FULL YEAR 2020 GOLD PRODUCTION; MEETS ANNUAL GUIDANCE FOR FIFTH CONSECUTIVE YEAR

Gran Colombia Gold Corp. produced a total of 19,958 ounces of gold in December, 2020, bringing the total for the fourth quarter of 2020 to 57,265 ounces compared with 65,237 ounces in the fourth quarter of 2019. For the full year, the Company produced a total of 220,194 ounces of gold in 2020, which is within its annual guidance range of between 218,000 and 226,000 ounces. Two thousand twenty was the fifth consecutive year that the company has met or exceeded its annual production guidance. The company produced a total of 239,991 ounces of gold in 2019.

Lombardo Paredes, chief executive officer of Gran Colombia, commenting on the company's latest results, said: "Our Segovia operations had another steady quarter, finishing the year within guidance as expected. We have now produced a total of approximately 1.3 million ounces of gold from Segovia in the 10 years since we acquired the mining title and the head grade has averaged 13.8 g/t over that period of time, establishing Segovia as one of the highest-grade underground global gold mines, as further evidenced by the recently announced high-grade intercepts from our ongoing drilling program. In the fourth quarter of 2020, we continued the ongoing development of our mines at Segovia and in December, we commenced production activities at our fourth mine, Carla, which is expected to ramp up further during the first half of 2021. In the fourth quarter of 2020, we used our free cash flow to fund investments in private placements completed by Caldas Gold and ESV Resources in the amount of $17-million and $3-million, respectively, to fund the repurchases of 484,100 common shares for cancellation at a cost of approximately $2.9-million, to pay dividends totalling $1.9-million to our shareholders and to fund the principal and interest payments on our debt of approximately $5.5-million. At the end of December, 2020, Gran Colombia had a cash position of approximately $90-million (U.S.).

"The Marmato operations continued to gain momentum in the fourth quarter of 2020 with the implementation of the optimized mine plan in the existing upper mining operations and commencement of the planned plant expansion to be completed in the third quarter of 2021. Preparatory activities are under way related to the expansion of underground mining operations into the Marmato Deep zone (MDZ) as Caldas Gold awaits the extension of its Marmato mining title, expected to be completed later this month. Caldas Gold is also currently working closely with the management of Aris Gold to prepare for a smooth transition to the new board and management of Caldas Gold once the title extension is completed. At that time, Gran Colombia's interest in the new Aris Gold Corp. will be approximately 44.3 per cent on an undiluted basis."

Gran Colombia sets 2021 Segovia production guidance

2021-02-16 09:11 ET - News Release

Mr. Mike Davies reports

GRAN COLOMBIA PROVIDES ITS 2021 PRODUCTION GUIDANCE FOR SEGOVIA; DECLARES MONTHLY DIVIDEND TO BE PAID ON MARCH 15, 2021

Gran Colombia Gold Corp. expects to produce between 200,000 and 220,000 ounces of gold in 2021 from its high-grade Segovia operations in Antioquia, Colombia. In 2020, the Segovia Operations produced 196,362 ounces of gold.

Lombardo Paredes, Chief Executive Officer of Gran Colombia, commenting on the Company's expected production in 2021, said, "Our Segovia Operations continue to be one of the highest-grade underground global gold mines. In 2021, we are complementing our ongoing mining operations and exploration at our four existing mines with a broader regional drilling program within our mining title targeting the other 24 of 27 known veins which we are not currently mining. While the month of January typically starts off a little slower following the holidays and this year included a two-day planned shutdown of the Maria Dama plant for regular maintenance, we are maintaining our COVID-19 protocols and we are confident our mine plan will deliver more than 200,000 ounces of gold production from Segovia in 2021."

Gran Colombia processed an average of 1,336 tonnes per day ("tpd") in January 2021 at its Segovia Operations with an average head grade of 12.6 g/t resulting in 15,055 ounces of gold production for the month. January's production reflected a scheduled semi-annual two-day plant shutdown for regular maintenance. Over the last 10 years, the Company has produced a total of approximately 1.3 million ounces of gold from its Segovia Operations at an average head grade of 13.8 g/t. In 2021, the Company expects that head grades will continue to average between 13 to 15 g/t over the course of the year.

With the recent closing of the Aris transaction with Caldas Gold, Gran Colombia's equity ownership in the new Aris Gold Corporation (TSX: ARIS; OTCQX: ALLXF) ("Aris Gold") is now approximately 44.3%. As such, starting in 2021, Gran Colombia will equity account for its investment in Aris Gold and will not include the Marmato mine in its production reporting.

Monthly Dividend Declaration

Gran Colombia is pleased to announce today that its Board of Directors has declared the next monthly dividend of CA$0.015 per common share will be paid on March 15, 2021 to shareholders of record as of the close of business on February 26, 2021.

The issuer acquired the Zancudo mining assets pursuant to a share purchase agreement dated Nov. 20, 2020, among Gran Colombia, the issuer, Gran Colombia Gold SA and Gran Colombia Gold Titiribi Corp., whereby the issuer purchased from GCG Panama, a wholly owned subsidiary of Gran Colombia, all of the issued and outstanding shares of GCG Titiribi, which holds title to all of the Zancudo mining assets through its Colombian branch, Gran Colombia Titiribi Sucursal Colombia. The Zancudo mining assets were acquired by the issuer for $12.15-million, which was satisfied by the issuance by the issuer to Gran Colombia of an aggregate of 27 million common shares having a deemed price of 45 cents per common share.

Amalgamation transaction

Concurrently with the completion of the Zancudo transaction, on Feb. 19, 2021, the issuer completed a three-cornered amalgamation with 1255269 B.C. Ltd. and 1270702 B.C. Ltd., pursuant to which the issuer acquired certain mining assets indirectly owned by Guia Antigua Co. and located 130 kilometres northeast of Medellin in the Segovia-Remedios mining district, department of Antioquia. The amalgamation transaction was completed pursuant to an amalgamation agreement dated Nov. 20, 2020, whereby the issuer acquired Guia Antigua Co. in exchange for the issuance of an aggregate of 15 million shares of the issuer to the shareholders of Guia Antigua Co.

Prior to the completion of, and in connection with, the amalgamation transaction, Guia Antigua Co. completed a private placement offering on Nov. 9, 2020, to raise aggregate proceeds of $8,403,774 through the sale of 18,675,053 subscription receipts at a price of 45 cents per subscription receipt.

Gran Colombia says it will be a busy promoter over the next few weeks, but it lost ground nevertheless.

Gran Colombia Gold Corp. (GCM), up 34 cents initially, ended the day down one cent to $5.64 on 504,000 shares. Gran Colombia said today that it would be participating in a warm-up "mining showcase" -- promotional warmup -- ahead of next week's premier dog and pony show put on by the Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada. Alas, this year the PDAC attendees will not be able to mix and mingle -- or spread COVID-19 as happened last March.

The 2021 event will be a cyber affair.

New Found Gold has found new gold down plunge at Queensway. Aurelius Minerals has encouraging new drill hits at Aureus East in N.S.

LIST of the best Canadian Stock Investing Forums and Message Boards.

>>>. https://twitter.com/gcmgold. ... > https://www.northernminer.com/company/025060708/

1. Canadian Money Forum

Canadian Money Forum is likely the largest player when it comes to a forum built for Canadian investors. Boasting over 160,000 members you can be sure to see tons of engagement ranging through a wide variety of topics. If you are looking for a large network of Canadian investors then this is your place. One negative aspect of this website is that it runs an archaic forum technology and looks like it is from the 1990’s. If you don’t care for user experience and ease of use then that won’t matter to you!

2. Canadian Investor - Reddit

Now Reddit is love/hate relationship for most. The r/CanadianInvestor sub-reddit has tons of content being posted daily. Like Reddit as a whole though, the quality of content can be really suspect. You don’t really know who is who and people can easily make false claims and push stock ideas. I would use this forum more so to gauge the sentiment of younger millennial traders. The demographics of Reddit tends to be younger.

3. Hashtag Investing

Hashtag Investing is the new kid in town when it comes to a Canadian stock investor forum. While Hashtag Investing appeals to all traders globally, it does have a large percentage of members who are from Canada. As Hashtag Investing has only been live for a year now, it has around 2500 members but is growing extremely fast. The unique difference with Hashtag Investing is its modern platform with mobiles apps for Android and iOS coming soon. It also has group chatting capability as well as polls . Hashtag Investing also has partnered deals with many popular Canadian services including Dividend Earner.

MERGER: 0.6948 of a Gran Colombia share for each Gold X share.

SUMMARY:

Gran Colombia and Gold X are combining to form a new, mid-tier, Latin American-focused gold producer. All issued and outstanding Gold X shares will be acquired by Gran Colombia in exchange for Gran Colombia common shares on the basis of 0.6948 of a Gran Colombia share for each Gold X share. The combined company will have around $100 million in cash and financing support from Wheaton Precious Metals.

DETAIL:

Gran Colombia Gold Corp. (TSX: GCM; OTCQX: TPRFF) (“Gran Colombia”) and Gold X Mining Corp. (TSXV: GLDX; OTCQX: GLDXF) (“Gold X”) are pleased to announce that they have entered into a definitive arrangement agreement dated March 14th, 2021 (the “Agreement”) pursuant to which Gran Colombia will acquire all of the issued and outstanding common shares of Gold X (the “Gold X Shares”) not already owned by Gran Colombia by way of a statutory plan of arrangement (the “Arrangement”) under the Business Corporations Act (British Columbia).  Gran Colombia currently owns 9,571,158 shares of Gold X, or approximately 18% of the Gold X Shares outstanding.

Under the terms of the Agreement, all of the issued and outstanding Gold X Shares will be acquired by Gran Colombia in exchange for Gran Colombia common shares (the “Gran Colombia Shares”) on the basis of 0.6948 of a Gran Colombia Share for each Gold X Share (the “Exchange Ratio”). The Exchange Ratio implies consideration of CA$4.10 per Gold X Share based on the 20-day volume weighted average price of the Gran Colombia Shares on the Toronto Stock Exchange as of the market close on March 12, 2021 (the “Value Date”) for total consideration of approximately CA$315 million on a 100% and fully diluted in-the-money basis. The Exchange Ratio represents a premium of 39% based on the closing price of the Gold X Shares on the TSX Venture Exchange (the “TSXV”) on the Value Date and a 44% premium based on the 20-day volume weighted average price of the Gold X Shares ending on the Value Date.

Transaction Highlights

  • Creation of a New, Latin American-Focused Growth Platform – the combined company will consist of a complementary asset portfolio including the world-class, free cash flow generating Segovia Operations located in Colombia, as well as the large, high-growth and substantially de-risked Toroparu Gold Project in Guyana that boasts 4.5 million ounces of LOM gold production over a 24-year mine life.1
     
  • Latin American Operating & Mine Building Expertise – unlocking the value of the Toroparu Gold Project through development and achieving production will be supported by Gran Colombia’s proven track-record of mine building and operating in Latin America.
     
  • Significant Resource Growth & Exploration Potential – significant potential to grow mineable ounces from 24 largely untested, highly prospective veins in close proximity to the Segovia Operations, as well as delineate additional large gold deposits and discover high-priority targets within the 538 km2 Toroparu Gold Project land package, which predominately remains unexplored.
     
  • Enhanced Balance Sheet & Access to Capital – the combined company will have approximately US$100 million in cash, greater access to equity and debt capital markets, financing support from Wheaton Precious Metals as well as robust free cash flow from Gran Colombia’s Segovia Operations.
     
  • Enhanced Capital Markets Profile – combining Gran Colombia and Gold X has the potential to result in increased critical mass for further consolidation, improved trading liquidity and attracting greater support from institutional investors.

Serafino Iacono, Executive Chairman of Gran Colombia, commented: “We are pleased to present this arrangement to the shareholders of Gran Colombia and Gold X. Creating long-term value for our shareholders is at the core of our strategy. The contemplated acquisition will provide Gran Colombia with an opportunity to add a large-scale, long-life Latin American gold development project to its portfolio. When this transaction is consummated, the Toroparu Gold Project will join our Segovia Operations as cornerstones of our long-term growth strategy.”

Paul Matysek, Chief Executive Officer & Director of Gold X, stated: "Gold X has delivered on its commitment to maximize value for its shareholders through its disciplined approach to risk mitigation, exploration and project development. This transaction provides Gold X shareholders with an immediate and significant upfront premium, exposure to an established Latin American gold producer and re-rating potential. With a strong operating history, solid balance sheet and track-record of developing assets within the Guiana Shield, we believe that Gran Colombia is an ideal partner to bring Toroparu into production.”

Benefits to Gran Colombia Shareholders

  • Adds a large, substantially de-risked growth project to Gran Colombia’s portfolio
  • 7.35 million gold ounces added to Gran Colombia’s Measured and Indicated mineral resource profile2
  • Significant potential to upgrade inferred resources into mineable ounces
  • Exploration and incremental resource growth within a highly prospective 538 km2 land package
  • Geographic and asset diversification
  • Alignment with Gran Colombia’s geographic, development and operational competencies
  • Capital markets re-rating opportunity

Benefits to Gold X Shareholders

  • Significant premium (44% based on Gold X’s 20-day VWAP as of March 12, 2021 on the TSXV)
  • Increased balance sheet strength, access to capital and free cash flow to fund development
  • Continued exposure to upside at the Toroparu Gold Project

SEGOVIA TARGET: 200,000 and 220,000 ounces of gold in 2021, ie: 50-55k per Qtr

GRAN COLOMBIA PROVIDES PRODUCTION UPDATE;

DECLARES APRIL 15, 2021 MONTHLY DIVIDEND; ANNOUNCES 2020 FOURTH QUARTER AND YEAR END RESULTS WEBCAST

Gran Colombia Gold Corp. remains on track to produce between 200,000 and 220,000 ounces of gold in 2021 from its high-grade Segovia operations in Antioquia, Colombia. In February, 2021, Gran Colombia produced 15,354 ounces of gold and 18,922 ounces of silver at Segovia, bringing the total for the first two months of the year to 30,415 ounces of gold and 37,519 ounces of silver.

Lombardo Paredes, chief executive officer of Gran Colombia, commenting on the company's production update, said: "Segovia continues to be a world-class mining title with a rich history of mineral exploitation. We have confidence in our ongoing exploration program to continue to add reserves and resources, replacing what we are mining each year. Our next reserve and resource update will be available at the end of this month. Our ongoing mine development program continues to open new areas for mining and this month we surpassed the 1,500-tonne-per-day average for an entire month for the first time since we completed the plant expansion last year. The next phase of plant expansion to 2,000 tpd is proceeding well and should be completed in the second half of this year. Historically, mineral exploitation in the Segovia title has also included zinc and lead. In February, we completed the funding for our new recovery plant under construction at Segovia that will come on stream later this year and allow us to recover commercial quantities of zinc, lead, gold and silver into concentrate from our tailings. This not only represents an additional source of cash flow from our mining operations, it further improves our environmental impact by eliminating these minerals from the tailings going into our storage facility. We will continue to provide updates on these projects as they progress this year."

Gran Colombia processed 42,345 tonnes in February, 2021, at its Segovia operations, up from 41,426 tonnes last month, despite February being a shorter month. This represented a daily processing rate of 1,512 tonnes per day (tpd) in February, up from 1,336 tpd last month, which included a two-day planned shutdown of the Maria Dama plant for regular maintenance. Head grades and mill recovery averaged 12.54 grams per tonne and 90 per cent, respectively, in February. This brings the daily processing rate to an average of 1,420 tpd for the first two months of 2021, with an average head grade of 12.55 g/t and mill recovery of 90 per cent.

===

Despite the impact of the pandemic on production, operating costs, and the execution of our capital and exploration programs, we had a solid year in many aspects and we look forward to continuing to advance the exploration and development of our high-grade Segovia operations in 2021. Today we have also announced an update on our mineral resources and reserves at Segovia and we are pleased to report that we have not only replaced the mineral resources we mined last year, but we have identified many high priority in-mine, near-mine and brownfield targets for our 2021 drilling program. In 2020, we successfully created value for our shareholders through the spinout of our Marmato mining assets which are now in good hands with the Aris Gold management team. We are also excited at the prospect of adding the Toroparu gold project to our growth strategy through completion of the recently announced Gold X takeover bid currently in process....

Fourth quarter and full year 2020 highlights

  • Gran Colombia achieved its annual production guidance for the fifth consecutive year in 2020. For the full year, gold production of 220,194 ounces in 2020 was within the expected range of 218,000 to 226,000 ounces, compared with 239,991 ounces of gold in 2019. Gold production in the fourth quarter of 2020, which reflected the expected reduction in head grades at Segovia in 2020, totalled 57,265 ounces compared with 65,237 ounces in the fourth quarter of 2019.
  • Gran Colombia successfully brought its spinout of the Marmato mining assets to a successful conclusion in early 2021, one in which the company has a continuing equity ownership of 44.3 per cent in the new, fully financed, Aris Gold Corp. In March, 2021, the company set its sights on the creation of a new, Latin American-focused growth platform with its bid to acquire all the shares of Gold X Mining Corp. it does not already own in a friendly share-for-share exchange, with the multimillion-ounce Toroparu project in Guyana joining Segovia to become the company's second cornerstone asset. Subject to shareholder and regulatory approval, the companies are working toward closing the transaction in late May/early June, 2021.
  • The company's continuing drilling program in Segovia continues to provide encouraging results, reaffirming confidence in the high-grade nature of the Segovia gold deposits and replacing mineral resources mined in 2020. The updated mineral resource estimate as of Dec. 31, 2020, reflects an upgrade of mineral resources with 4.0 million tonnes at a grade of 11.2 grams per tonne totalling 1.43 million ounces of gold in measured and indicated resources and 3.7 million tonnes at a grade of 10.3 g/t totalling 1.21 million ounces of gold in inferred resources. The company also reported an updated mineral reserve for Segovia with a total of 2.2 million tonnes at an average grade of 9.0 g/t representing approximately 633,000 proven and probable ounces of gold as of Dec. 31, 2020. The company expects to carry out approximately 60,000 metres of drilling in 2021, of which approximately 40,000 metres will continue to focus on stepout and infill drilling in proximity to the company's four mining operations and approximately 20,000 metres will be dedicated to exploration on the high priority brownfield targets in the Segovia mining title.
  •  
  • The company's balance sheet remained solid with total cash of $122.5-million at the end of 2020, including $33.0-million in Aris, and a 48-per-cent reduction in 2020 in the aggregate principal amount of gold notes outstanding to $35.5-million at the end of the year. In October, Fitch Ratings upgraded the company to B+ stable outlook. The company has announced it will complete early partial redemptions in 2021 of 10 per cent of the convertible debentures in April and 33.6 per cent of the gold notes in May.
  • The company returned a total of $5.4-million to shareholders in 2020 with the repurchase of 890,100 shares at a cost of $4.0-million and payment of its first two dividends totalling $1.4-million. The company has continued to pay its monthly dividend of 1.5 cents per share in 2021 and in the first quarter of 2021 has repurchased an additional 702,000 shares at an average price of $5.69 (Canadian) per share.

LOSS?  At $5.68 / $1.28 adj. Net Income ... is 4.4x Adj. Net

  • The company reported a net loss of $51.3-million (59 cents per share) in the fourth quarter of 2020 compared with a net loss of $148.8-million ($2.86 per share) in the fourth quarter of 2019. For the full year, the company reported a net loss of $27.6-million (eight cents per share) compared with a net loss of $131.2-million ($2.65 per share) in 2019. The net loss in 2020 included $72.9-million of non-cash fair value losses on derivative financial instruments, Aris financing fees and expenses of $13.9-million, a $16.7-million charge related to the Bluenose RTO (reverse takeover) transaction, and an $8.9-million provision for withholding taxes on accumulated earnings to be repatriated from Colombia. The net loss in 2019 includes the after-tax impairment charge for the Marmato project of $153.6-million.
  •  
  • Adjusted net income (1) for the fourth quarter of 2020 was $7.7-million (15 cents per share) compared with $17.1-million (33 cents per share) in the fourth quarter last year. For the full year, adjusted net income improved to $75.9-million ($1.28 per share) compared with $60.5-million ($1.22 per share) in 2019. The year-over-year improvement in adjusted net income in 2020 largely reflects the positive impact of higher gold prices in 2020, partially offset by the COVID-19 impact on gold production and operating costs,

Outlook

With the closing of the Aris transaction with Caldas Gold at the beginning of February, 2021, Gran Colombia has successfully brought its spinout of the Marmato mining assets to a successful conclusion, one in which Gran Colombia continues to hold an equity ownership of 44.3 per cent in the new, fully financed, Aris. Starting in 2021, Gran Colombia will equity account for its investment in Aris and will no longer include the Marmato mine in its production reporting.

Gran Colombia's focus in 2021 will centre on the exploration and continuing development of its high-grade Segovia operations, the epicentre of its free cash flow generation. In February, the company provided its annual production guidance for the coming year and expects to produce between 200,000 and 220,000 ounces of gold at Segovia. Over the last 10 years, the company has produced a total of approximately 1.3 million ounces of gold from its Segovia operations at an average head grade of 13.8 g/t. In 2021, the company expects that head grades will continue to average between 13 to 15 g/t over the course of the year. The next phase of plant expansion at Segovia to 2,000 tpd (tonnes per day) is proceeding well and should be completed in the second half of this year. In February, the company paid $7.0-million related to the construction of a new recovery plant at Segovia that will come on stream later this year and allow it to recover commercial quantities of zinc, lead, gold and silver into concentrate from its tailings. This not only represents an additional source of cash flow from mining operations, it further improves the environmental impact of the Segovia operations by eliminating these minerals from the tailings going into the El Chocho storage facility.

The company currently holds an 18.15-per-cent equity interest in Gold X, a Canadian junior mining company which owns the Toroparu project in the western Guyana gold district. On March 15, 2021, the company announced that it has entered into a definitive arrangement agreement pursuant to which it proposes to acquire all of the issued and outstanding common shares of Gold X it does not already own by way of a statutory plan of arrangement, subject to the approval of the shareholders of both companies and regulatory approval. Pursuant to the definitive agreement, the company would acquire the shares of Gold X on the basis of 0.6948 of a Gran Colombia share for each Gold X share.

The exchange ratio implies consideration of $4.10 (Canadian) per Gold X share based on the 20-day volume weighted average price of the Gran Colombia shares on the Toronto Stock Exchange as of the market close on March 12, 2021, for total consideration of approximately $315-million (Canadian) on a 100-per-cent and fully diluted in-the-money basis. Through the creation of a new, Latin American-focused growth platform, Gran Colombia believes that the combined company will consist of a complementary asset portfolio including the world-class, free-cash-flow-generating Segovia operations located in Colombia, as well as the large, high-growth and substantially derisked Toroparu project in Guyana that boasts 4.5 million ounces of LOM (life of mine) gold production over a 24-year mine life. The companies are working toward closing the transaction in late May/early June, 2021.

The company intends to continue to take steps in 2021 to strengthen its balance sheet, including the recently announced early partial redemptions of 10 per cent of the convertible debentures in April and 33.6 per cent of the gold notes in May, bringing the aggregate principal amounts of the convertible debentures and gold notes down to $18.0-million (Canadian) and $19.75-million (Canadian), respectively, after the redemptions. The payment date for the early redemption of the gold notes has been revised to May 10, 2021, to accommodate the procedures and requirements of CDS Clearing and Depository Services Inc. and the Toronto Stock Exchange.

Through the first quarter of 2021, the company has continued to return cash to its shareholders, repurchasing a total of 702,000 common shares under its NCIB (normal course issuer bid) at a cost of approximately $4.0-million (Canadian) and payment of dividends of approximately $900,000 (Canadian) each month. The company is committed to its dividend program at the current monthly rate of 1.5 Canadian cents per share and expects to continue to repurchase common shares, within certain price ranges, for cancellation under its NCIB to support continued value creation for its shareholders.

Gran Colombia produces 49,058 oz Au in Q1 / 2021 Target:  200,000 to 220,000 oz

2021-04-13 10:05 ET - News Release

Mr. Mike Davies reports

GRAN COLOMBIA REPORTS FIRST QUARTER 2021 GOLD PRODUCTION

Gran Colombia Gold Corp. has produced a total of 18,643 ounces of gold at its Segovia operations in March, 2021, bringing the total gold production for the first quarter of 2021 to 49,058 ounces, compared with 50,346 ounces in the first quarter of 2020. The Company also produced 57,315 ounces of silver in the first quarter of 2021, up from 45,918 ounces of silver in the first quarter last year.

Lombardo Paredes, Chief Executive Officer of Gran Colombia, commenting on the Company's latest results, said, "We had a solid month in March, our second consecutive month above the 1,500 tpd level at our Maria Dama processing plant at our Segovia Operations. Based on our plan for the balance of the year, we remain on track to meet our production guidance for the full year of 200,000 to 220,000 ounces of gold. The expansion of Maria Dama to 2,000 tpd is proceeding well. This expansion includes a new blending yard and crushing system, a new Merrill Crowe system, additional thickeners and a second filter press at the El Chocho tailings storage facility, all of which are being added to the operation in stages over the balance of the year. In addition, the construction of the new polymetallic plant for recovery of zinc, lead, gold and silver from the tailings into concentrate at Segovia should be completed by mid-year and we expect to commence commissioning shortly thereafter."

"In the first quarter of 2021, we used a portion of our free cash flow to fund the $7 million upfront cost related to the construction of the polymetallic plant at Segovia and another CA$10 million to maintain our equity interest in Denarius Silver Corp. at approximately 27% by participating in Denarius' private placement to finance its acquisition and exploration of the Lomero Project in Spain. We also used approximately CA$4 million to fund the repurchases of 702,000 common shares under our NCIB in March for cancellation and a total of CA$2.8 million to pay our continuing monthly dividends to our shareholders. In the first quarter of 2021, we made the first of our income tax instalments in Colombia in the amount of approximately $8 million and we used approximately US$5 million toward our debt service on the Gold Notes and Convertible Debentures. At the end of March 2021, we had a cash position of approximately US$73.6 million and the aggregate principal amounts of our Gold Notes and Convertible Debentures outstanding were US$32.6 million and CA$20 million, respectively."

The Segovia Operations processed an average of 1,565 tonnes per day ("tpd") in March 2021, with an average head grade of 13.32 g/t. This brought the average for the first quarter of 2021 to 1,470 tpd of material processed at an average head grade of 12.83 g/t compared with 1,284 tpd at an average head grade of 14.87 g/t in the first quarter last year. Ongoing development activities within the Company's four operating mines increased tonnes processed to an average of 1,200 tpd in the first quarter of 2021, up from 1,051 tpd in the first quarter last year. In addition, the Company processed 270 tpd of material in the first quarter of 2021 from the small mines operating under contract with the Company in the brownfield areas within the Segovia mining title, up from 233 tpd in the first quarter last year. The Company currently has 56 small mines under contract as part of its ESG initiatives.

Gran Colombia expects to release its first quarter 2021 financial results on or about May 13, 2021. Webcast details will be announced in early May.
