Turk Mine is a village that grew up around a gold mine of the same name and serves as an administrative centre for the surrounding mining and ranching area. It is located about 56 km north-east of Bulawayo on Hunstman Farm, on the road to Lonely Mine.
It has the potential capacity to produce 35,000 to 50,000 ounces of gold annually. At maximum output, the life of the mine is approximately 20 years, which is supported by an independently audited resource estimate with gold grades between 4 – 6 g/t. New Dawn Mining Corp currently owns 100% of the Turk-Angelus Mine. It is known as The Turk – Angelus Mine and is currently expanding to 22,000 to 23,000 ounces of annualized gold production.
