Victoria Gold Corp. Sept. 15 announced that it has been included in the Toronto Stock Exchange's 2021 TSX30, a flagship program recognizing the 30 top-performing TSX stocks over a three-year period based on dividend-adjusted share price appreciation.
Trading under the TSX ticker symbol VGCX, Victoria shares have risen 251% over the 3-year span considered for inclusion in the 2021 TSX30, ranking the Yukon gold miner thirteenth on the list.
"On behalf of the company, I am very honored by this TSX30 recognition, a list that spans all sectors, both established and emerging companies," said Victoria Gold President and CEO John McConnell.
Over this period, Victoria has evolved from a mineral exploration and development company to the operator of the Eagle Gold Mine, an open-pit and heap leach operation capable of producing more than 200,000 ounces of gold per year.
After a monthly record of 20,744 oz of gold, the Eagle Mine had produced 94,360 oz of the precious metal so far this year.
McConnell acknowledged the broader community that has played a part in the success at Eagle Mine that has elevated Victoria to the ranks of 2021 TSX30.
"I'd like to take this time to express my gratitude for the support of not only our employees, but our contractors, local stakeholders and the investment community, who have all contributed greatly to the success of the company as we've constructed and brought our Eagle Gold Mine into operations and generated extraordinary returns over these last three years," he said.
