The Yatela Gold Mine is located 25 kilometres north of the Sadiola Gold Mine in southwest Mali, West Africa near the Senegal-Mali border, approximately 50 kilometres to the SSW of the town of Kayes, the regional capital.
Yatela began production in 2001 and will cease production by the end of 2016. Mining activities were suspended in September 2013 and the processing of the ore previously mined will continue as the operations continue to wind down. The winding down of Yatela continued through to the end of 2014, at which point stacking of ore on the leach pads was discontinued.
