Johannesburg - Production at gold miner Randgold Resources' Tongon mine in Côte d’Ivoire is returning to normal after a fire in the mill section of its plant three weeks ago‚ the company said at the weekend. 

Both mill circuits are expected to be fully operational within weeks and‚ despite a series of setbacks‚ the mine produced 210‚000 ounces of gold in 2012. 

Randgold chief executive Mark Bristow said Tongon exemplified the company’s long-term vision and its tenacity of purpose. 

“Tongon represents the biggest single investment to date in this part of Côte d’Ivoire‚ and when we made that investment‚ we invested not only in a mine but in this country‚” Bristow said. 

“We are currently exploring our extensive tenements elsewhere in Côte d’Ivoire and we hope to discover further multi-million ounce gold deposits here and‚ with the support of the government‚ to develop these into world-class mines.”
