Golden Band Resources says it has resumed full operations at its La Ronge Gold Project.

Back in February, the company halted production at its Komis deposit and shut down the mill.

A large turnover of company directors and administrative officials soon followed.

An outside company was also brought in to act as a consultant for Golden Band, which admitted it was experiencing serious financial challenges.

This week, however, the mining company says things are looking much better.

In a release, Golden Band says work is almost complete on refurbishing the mill, areas have been prepared for production and ore has been stockpiled.

Permitting has also begun on one additional mining area.

The first gold pour is scheduled for the end of August.

Golden Band says it plans to produce 25,000 ounces of gold in this fiscal year.

It also says the main reason for the shutdown was operating costs had reached unsustainable levels but this has now been addressed.
