Terra operations produce first 2015 gold

WestMountain Gold Inc. July 19 reported the shipment of 410 ounces of gold doré from the first 2.5 weeks of 2015 pilot plant operations at its Terra project in Southwest Alaska.

Doré produced from the Terra pilot plant last year averaged roughly 70 percent gold and 30 percent silver.

The company says the mill is averaging 8 to 10 tons daily, and there are plans to upgrade the milling facility.

WestMountain CEO Greg Schifrin said, "We are pleased to have operations underway at Terra this year and production from our pilot mill to generate cash flow.

We continue to explore and develop the high-grade veins present and increase our operations at Terra." Project development, construction, bulk sample mining and milling and exploration will continue throughout the field season.
