Nevada' Open Pit Robinson Mine Reports Record Production

ELY, Nev. (AP) - A huge open pit gold and copper mine in northeast Nevada is reporting some record production numbers.

Officials for Quandra Mining say their Robinson mine near Ruth
produced 42 million pounds of copper and nearly 38,000 ounces of
gold in the first quarter of this year.

Both mark all-time production records for the first fiscal quarter.

Quandra President and CEO Paul Blythe said the credit goes to all the work and innovation on the part of the managers and miners at the mine east of Ely.

He said the record production volumes are especially important during a period of high copper and gold prices.
