Siguiri is a conventional shovel and truck open pit mine. The ore is crushed, ground and leached in agitated leach tanks. The plant has a daily capacity of 30kt/d. Gold is then recovered from a carbon in pulp circuit with the final product being a gold dore. There is currently (2017) an expansion programme being evaluated to extend mine life to at least 2023 through the processing of an extra 1.6Moz of gold contained in fresh and transitional ore.
