Richmont Mines inc
Our 20+ year track record of bringing early-stage gold exploration projects to their full developmental potential and, once in operation, cost-effectively managing underground narrow vein gold mines, has earned us a reputation as a reliable and well-managed gold mine operator.
We are committed to continuing to perform at the highest level of operational and financial excellence, while remaining debt-free, to use our leadership position as a catalyst for consolidation amongst our peer group, to provide our employees with substantial economic and social benefits, and to provide our investors with stellar returns.
Our management team is focused on generating positive cash flow and profitable growth to provide the Company with a solid base upon which to increase production rates, grow reserve levels, and expand the Company’s pipeline of projects. Our asset portfolio includes a number of mineral properties in the production, development and exploration stage, and two wholly-owned gold mills.
Richmont Mines was founded in 1981 by Jean-Guy Rivard. During the subsequent decade, the Company attracted a range of public and private financing, which was used to acquire properties and carry out exploration programs. Richmont Mines has been a publicly traded company since 1984, and is currently listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX) and on NYSE Amex under the ticker symbol “RIC”.
Since beginning commercial production in 1991, Richmont Mines has become an established gold producer specializing in the exploration and development of underground gold deposits. Over the years, we have operated 6 mines: the Francoeur, Beaufor and East Amphi mines located in Quebec, the Nugget Pond and Hammerdown mines in Newfoundland, and the Island Gold Mine in Ontario. In total, these operations have yielded over 1,000,000 ounces of gold.
