The mine commenced ore production in 2001 with a nominal capacity of 1kt/d. Prior to the commissioning of the 1kt/d mill in 2006 all ore mined was sold to concentrators in the local area. Capacity was increased incrementally to 1.5kt/d by 2011. A new mill was commissioned at the end of 2012 with a capacity of 3kt/d and the original mill was shut down. A further expansion to 8kt/d was planned for 2015.
