A total of 540,600 tonnes of ore were processed in the first quarter.

In December, the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development announced a $32.7 million (30.7 million euro) investment in DPM to back up the development of the company’s Krumovgrad gold and silver mining project in south-eastern Bulgaria. The investment was successfully closed on January 24, DPM said.

“At Krumovgrad, earthworks continue to progress in accordance with the project plan, with first concrete forecast to be poured in April as planned, and consistent with the project schedule to commence operations in late 2018,” DPM said in its statement.
