The Skouries project is a world-class asset located on the Halkidiki Peninsula in northern Greece. This high-grade copper-gold porphyry deposit will be mined using a combination of conventional open pit and underground mining techniques. Based on the 2021 Feasibility Study, the initial life of mine is 20 years and it is expected to produce on average 140,000 ounces of gold and 67 million pounds of copper per year. 

The project is fully funded at an estimated cost of $920 million. By the end of the first quarter of 2024, overall project progress was 73% complete including the first phase of construction. First production is expected in the third quarter of 2025, with commercial production at the end of 2025.
