Agbaou is an open-pit mining operation with ore processed in a conventional gravity/carbon in leach (CIL) circuit. Commercial production was declared in 2014 and in 2020, the mine produced 105koz of gold. The mine uses conventional open-pit mining methods. In continuing efforts to optimize its portfolio, Endeavour considered its interest in the mine as non-core and divested the operation in 2021. The stake is picked up by Allied Gold Corp, a privately owned, Africa-focused gold company.
