Goldplat said it was on track to significantly increase profits due to the success of its Kilimapesa mine in Kenya.
The firm said it had now quantified 649,804 oz of gold at the mine, exceeding its 500,000 resource base target for 2012.
Chief Executive Demetri Manolis said the figures underpinned Goldplat's belief that the project area had the ability to contain in excess of one million ounces of gold.

"We are on track to achieve our growth objectives and significantly increase our production and operating profit, which in the year ending 30 June 2011 was £3.054m," he added.
