Kirkland Lake Gold Inc.: Fiscal 2013 Q2 Operational and Financial Results - "The focus of the Company remains the execution of the Mine Expansion Project to a production capacity of 2,200 tons of ore per day. Reaching this milestone will be a key step towards achieving the Company's goal of becoming a sustainable and consistently profitable intermediate gold mining company. The current critical path activity for this Expansion Project is the Service Cage Project. Regrettably, delays in completing this critical path activity have resulted in a delay in the overall Project, and are preventing the Company from meeting its production goals for the current fiscal year. Accordingly, the Company is reducing its guidance for the year ending April 30 to between 90,000 to 110,000 ounces of gold sold. This setback notwithstanding, the Company does remain committed to reaching the above referenced production capacity of 2,200 tons per day as close to the original plan target date of January 2014 as practicable."
