By the end of 1937, the mill had increased operations to 1,000 tons per day.


For the next 50 years, the Lamaque property produced over 4.5 million ounces of gold from nine mineralized zones. Production at Lamaque ceased in 1985.

1990 - 2003

Limited exploration was conducted on the Lamaque South property between 1990 and 2003.


In 2009, Kalahari bought out the remaining interests in the property and changed its name to Integra Gold in 2010.


Integra advanced surface exploration and discovered the Triangle deposit in 2011.


In 2014, Integra Gold bought the adjacent Sigma Mill and historic Sigma and Lamaque Mines, consolidating these with the Lamaque South property for the first time in history.

Surface infrastructure development commenced at Triangle in 2015 with underground development starting in July 2016.


Eldorado Gold Corporation acquired Integra Gold in July 2017. Eldorado Gold Lamaque is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Eldorado Gold Corporation.
