Perseus Mining says it has resumed operations at its Edikan gold mine in Ghana seven days after a fire damaged the processing plant during routine maintenance.
Managing director Jeff Quartermaine said work began on repairing the damage caused by the fire immediately after a thorough investigation into its cause.
"The effort put in by our on-site team to assess and carry out the repair work was impressive and the fact that we were able to resume operations, as forecast, within seven days is a real credit to all of those involved," he said.
"We have learned a lot of very valuable lessons and the cost of repairs has been relatively modest."
Perseus shares were up 0.7 cents, or 1.87 per cent, to 38.2 cents at 8.20am.
