Brazil - Pilar | Brazil (100%-Yamana owned)

The Pilar mine began commissioning in July 2013. Pilar is located in Goiás state, 80 kilometres south of Yamana’s Chapada mine. Pilar is an underground mine with plant capacity of approximately one million tonnes per year, recovering gold by gravity and carbon-in-leach processing. Recent exploration has been producing encouraging results from the Maria Lazarus deposit 20 kilometres west of Pilar. Ore from an underground mine on the high grade Caiamar satellite deposit located 38 kilometres west of Pilar has the potential to provide further sustainable production growth.
