The Certej Mine is a large open pit mine in the west of Romania in Hunedoara County, 12 km north of Deva and 382 km north of the capital, Bucharest. Certej represents a large gold and silver deposit with estimated reserves of 2.1 million oz of gold and 12 million oz of silver.[1] The project is owned by the Toronto based company European Goldfields.

The project will involve the mining and processing of 3 million tonnes of ore per annum over an open pit life of eleven and a half years. The open pit is expected to yield approximately 160,000 oz of gold and 820,000 oz of silver per year in doré, reflecting an average total process recovery of 81% for gold and approximately 75% for silver.[2]
