- Trans-Siberian Gold reports mine development activities at Asacha in Q1 comprised about 867 metres, while ore extraction (including ore from stoping and mine development) amounted to 48,682 metric tonnes, the second highest quarterly total to date.

Plant throughput averaged 11,788 tonnes per month (94.3% of planned 12,500 tonnes), reflecting a maintenance and repair period during February which reduced that month's throughput to 7,691 tonnes.

Average dilution was 54.6% in the first quarter (2013 first quarter: 64.9%).

Ore dilution in March 2014 was 47.2%, the best monthly figure in 2013/14 and the Company remains cautiously optimistic that dilution can be reduced further through the continued implementation of the previously reported adjustments in mining methods.
