Brazil - Jacobina | Brazil (100% Yamana-owned)
The Jacobina operation, located in Bahia state in northeast Brazil, consists of a complex of underground gold mines and a 6,500 tonnes per day carbon-in-pulp processing plant.
Recent exploration and development have focused on upgrading mineral resources to mineral reserves in the higher grade Canavieiras and Morro do vento deposits. As the work proceeds, consideration is being given to increasing annual production. The timing of such an increase will be dependent on the pace of the development work.
