Golden Queen Announces Financial Results and Review of Operations for the Second Quarter of 2014

VANCOUVER, Aug. 11, 2014 /CNW/ - Golden Queen Mining Co. Ltd. (TSX:GQM; OTCQX:GQMNF) (the "Company") is pleased to announce its financial results for the three months ended June 30, 2014.  Management's discussion and analysis of the Company's financial condition and results of operations are described in the Form 10-Q, which will be available on the Company's website at www.goldenqueen.com, on SEDAR at www.sedar.com and on EDGAR at www.sec.gov.  Amounts are shown in U.S. dollars.

In the second quarter of 2014, Golden Queen Mining Co. Ltd. reported the following accomplishments:

  • Announced a proposed joint venture transaction with Gauss LLC; 
  • Completed the construction of the workshop-warehouse on budget;
  • Completed site grading and site preparation of the area where the crushing-screening plant will be built; and
  • Further advanced detailed engineering work

Financial Highlights

During the second quarter ended June 30, 2014, the Company reported a net loss of $0.7 million (or $0.01 basic per share), compared to net income of $1.2 million (or $0.01 basic per share) for the corresponding period in 2013.  This change is due in part to significantly higher general and administrative expenses incurred in the second quarter of 2014.

The Company had $24.4 million in assets, including $5.1 million in cash, and a working capital deficit of $7.5 million at June 30, 2014, compared with $15.8 million in assets, including $5.0 million in cash, and a working capital balance of $3.6 million at December 31, 2013.

The Company incurred general and administrative expenses of $2.1 million during the three months ended June 30, 2014, compared to $0.5 million for the same period in 2013.  This increase is due to the Company's financing efforts and an increase in corporate activities both at the Company's head office and on site as the Company continues to prepare the site for production.

The Company capitalized development costs of $5.0 million in the second quarter of 2014, compared to development costs of $1.5 million for the corresponding period in 2013.  Construction costs included $0.9 million towards the workshop-warehouse, $0.6 million in engineering costs, $0.5 million for the crushing-screening plant site preparation and $0.4 million in site development.  The Company also spent $0.8 million to acquire mineral property interests.  The capitalized development costs include $1.0 million in capitalized interest costs.

The results for the second quarter of 2014 are summarized in the table below:

Construction Update

Construction of the Soledad Mountain Project proceeded well during the second quarter of 2014.

The $10 million advance from Gauss LLC (see the news release of July 2, 2014) allowed the Company to commit to several pre-construction activities on site, including:

  • Confirmed an order for a high-pressure grinding roll with ThyssenKrupp Industrial Solutions (USA), Inc. (formerly Polysius Corporation) and made the initial deposit of ~$1 million in July;
  • Construction of the assay laboratory building;
  • Construction of the Phase 1 water supply;
  • Detailed engineering of the conveying and stacking system;
  • Site grading where the Merrill-Crowe plant will be constructed;
  • Test program to determine the parameters for the clay-tailings mix that will be used to construct the lower liner of the Phase 1, Stage 1 heap leach pad; and
  • Construct the heap leach facilities pump box.

Proposed Joint Venture

The Company announced a proposed joint venture transaction with Gauss LLC in a news release on June 9, 2014.  Details of the joint venture transaction are disclosed in a proxy statement on Schedule 14A that was filed with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") and certain Canadian securities regulators on July 31, 2014.  A copy of the proxy statement is available at www.sedar.com and on the Company's website at www.goldenqueen.com.

The Company will hold an Extraordinary Meeting of Shareholders on Tuesday, September 9, 2014 at the Pan Pacific Hotel, Coal Harbour Room (999 Canada Place Way, Vancouver, British Columbia) at 10:00am PDT for the purpose of seeking disinterested shareholder approval of the joint venture with Gauss LLC.  Shareholders will be required to submit their proxies before the proxy cut-off of 10:00am PDT on Friday, September 5, 2014.
