B2Gold Corp. is a Vancouver based gold producer with three operating mines (two in Nicaragua and one in the Philippines) and a strong portfolio of development and exploration assets in Namibia, Nicaragua, Mali, Burkina Faso and Colombia.
B2Gold is projecting another record year for gold production in 2014. Company-wide production in 2014 from the Masbate, La Libertad and Limon Mines is expected to be in the range of 380,000 to 385,000 ounces of gold. The production forecast for 2014 does not include any estimated gold production from the Otjikoto development project in Namibia as revenue earned from the sale of pre-commercial production will be credited to mineral property development costs prior to commercial production. Otjikoto is on schedule and on budget to begin production in December 2014.
Consolidated operating cash costs are expected to be in the range of $667 to $695 per ounce (a similar range as in 2013).
B2Gold’s corporate objective is to optimize production at existing mines and build further shareholder value through the exploration and development of existing projects and additional accretive acquisitions. B2Gold trades on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the symbol “BTO”, on the NYSE MKT under the symbol “BTG” and on the Namibian Stock Exchange under the symbol “B2G”.
