BAMAKO, June 9 (Reuters) – Mali’s first gold refinery should start production in mid-2015, its main shareholder said on Monday, after construction work was delayed by two years during political turmoil sparked by a northern Tuareg uprising.

Dario Littera, president of Swiss Bullion Co, said construction work on the Moussa Kankou refinery was scheduled to begin in September or October and should be completed by the middle of next year.

The refinery had originally been due to start production in November 2013 at an estimated cost of 52 million euros ($71 million).
