HALIFAX, Jan 19, 2016 /CNW/ - GoGold Resources Inc. (TSX: GGD) ("GoGold", "the Company") reports that this quarter the Company is focused on increasing production at Parral through an expansion of both the stacking circuit and the Merrill-Crowe processing facility (the "Parral Expansion"). The Parral Expansion will be completed this quarter and will result in the ability to double the ore processing to 10,000 tons per day.  The capital for the Parral Expansion of $10 million will double throughput representing a significant return on investment.  This increased throughput will result in lower unit costs and increase our future operating margin. 

"We are confident that the expansion will result in a significant increase in production, which we will start to see the effects of this quarter," said Brad Langille, newly appointed CEO and President. "The Company continues to selectively spend capital on projects with the highest return on investment."

The Company also reports production from the Parral heap leach facility in Chihuahua, Mexico of 231,353 silver equivalent ounces at a cash cost of $6.54 per silver equivalent ounce for the quarter ending December 31, 2015.

GoGold expects to produce 350,000 to 400,000 silver equivalent ounces this quarter with continued production growth going forward.
