Resolute Mining takes advantage of strong gold price to forward sell 30,000 ounces

Resolute Mining Limited (ASX:RSG) has taken advantage of strength in the gold price to extend its US dollar dominated gold hedge position for the first half of 2021 – forward selling 30,000 ounces of gold at an average price of US$1,590 per ounce.

Managing director and CEO John Welborn said Resolute continued to successfully maximise operating cash flows through responsible hedging strategies.

He said: “Incremental expansion of our US dollar hedging position at levels which are significantly above our budgeted gold price, protects and supports Resolutes near-term cash flows.

“Resolutes hedging program has strong support from our syndicate banks as our modest hedge book protects the Companys balance sheet and supports our goldlinked revenues.

“With long mine lives and large gold inventories, Resolute remains strongly leveraged to future upside in the gold price.”

The hedging secures price certainty for a portion of the US dollar revenues generated from Resolutes African gold mines, the Syama Gold Mine in Mali and the Mako Gold Mine in Senegal.
