Ressources Appalaches (TSXV:APP,FWB:OU3) announced that mining operations have commenced at its Dufferin Gold Mine in Nova Scotia. Initial ore extraction and surface stockpiling is expected to provide several weeks of supply for the start-up of the processing plant.

As quoted in the press release:

The first area of extraction starts in Vein #1. This vein will be mined from three faces located at an advantageous level near surface, for easy and rapid access, at 120m and 235 metres from the entrance of the mine. Four crews of five miners each will work day and night shifts, seven days a week. Extraction will increase gradually to a sustainable 300 tonnes per day.
