Wishbone Gold, a trading and exploration company focused on precious metals, expects buildings at its Honduras gold mine sites to be completed in the next couple of weeks.

The operations in Honduras were temporarily stopped by the Caribbean hurricanes, which caused bad weather across Central America.

The weather has now improved and construction crews are back onsite working to complete the buildings to house the processing plant. 

Prior to the wet season, most of the equipment was installed but commissioning activities were suspended as new buildings could not be completed prior to the hurricanes. The weather has now improved and the buildings are expected to be completed in the next couple of weeks.

The current Honduran election dispute remains ongoing with demands from the opposition for a recount or to re-run the elections. 

The company's local partners have reported that the demonstrations and protests have been largely limited to the capital, Tegucigalpa, but the position is unlikely to be stable for a few more weeks. 

Richard Poulden, chairman and CEO of Wishbone Gold, said: "Wishbone Gold's strategy of reverse integration into the small mining sector remains our priority and we hope to announce further plans in this area shortly. We will provide a full trading update early in the New Year but wanted to share the positive news from Honduras as soon as possible."
