In December 2018, Resolute commenced sublevel caving at the new Syama Underground Mine on time and on budget.
The successful development of the Syama Underground Mine represents a pivotal moment in the long history of Resolute. Syama will be the world’s first, purpose built, fully automated sublevel cave gold mine. It is a world class, long life, low cost asset that will deliver long term benefits to our shareholders, stakeholders, and local Mali communities for years to come.
Syama is located in the south of Mali, West Africa approximately 30km from the Côte d’Ivoire border and 300km southeast of the capital city, Bamako. Resolute has an 80% interest in Syama which is held through Sociêtê des Mines de Syama S.A. (SOMISY). The Malian Government holds a 20% interest in SOMISY.
