- Resolute Mining said that the sulphide roaster at its Syama gold mine in Mali was expected to be repaired and fully operational in about six weeks' time.

The roaster was a key component of the Syama sulphide processing circuit and was taken offline in early October due to the detection of a crack in its main external shell.

The roaster was expected to be fully operational in early to mid-December.

The total cost of repairs was estimated at $5m, though that amount was expected to be offset by operational cost savings from not operating the roaster during the repair period, Resolute Mining said.
