- Gold trading and exploration company Wishbone Gold said Honduran partner Sion Honduras had received a license for a new mining and processing site.

The site was set up to provide artisanal miners with equipment to process gold-bearing ore.

It was initially delayed by bad weather and then due to licensing issues, which Sion Honduras was in charge of obtaining.

Wishbone Gold said it would now accelerate production over the coming months and expected to be shipping to Dubai in the first quarter of next year.

'I am pleased that our first plant is licensed and starting production,' chairman Richard Poulden said.

'We are looking forward to producing gold and starting other sites in the future.'

At 2:34pm: [LON:WSBN] Wishbone Gold PLC share price was +0.07p at 0.17p
