Endeavour Mining reports record gold production in Q2 2014 at an AISC of $1,021/oz

VANCOUVER, Aug. 11, 2014 /CNW/ - Endeavour Mining Corporation ("Endeavour" or the "Corporation") (News - Market indicators) (ASX:EVR) (OTCQX:EDVMF) announces record gold production of 122,517 ounces resulting in revenue of $153.4 million that generated an all-in sustaining margin of $32.3 million in Q2 2014. Endeavour is benefiting from low cost production from Agbaou, the transition to owner mining at Tabakoto, and the impact of ongoing optimization programs. The AISC of $1,021/oz during Q2 2014 has decreased significantly from $1,115/oz in Q2 2013 and also improved compared to $1,059/oz in Q1 2014.

(All amounts in US dollars unless otherwise indicated)

Q2 2014 Financial and Operating Highlights

  • Record gold production of 122,517 ounces 
  • Gold sold was 118,653 ounces at a cash cost per ounce of $854
  • EBITDA of $40.2 million
  • All-in sustaining cost ("AISC") per ounce sold of $1,021
  • AISC margin of $32.3 million
  • Endeavour's Tabakoto underground mining team successfully advanced development of the Segala mine, a second underground mine that began feeding the Tabakoto mill in late June, as scheduled
  • Endeavour ended the quarter in a strong financial position with $57.1 million in cash

H1 2014 Financial and Operating Highlights

  • Record gold production of 228,429 ounces
  • Gold sold was 224,319 ounces at a cash cost per ounce of $866
  • EBITDA of $76.3 million
  • AISC per ounce sold of $1,039
  • AISC margin of $57.5 million

Neil Woodyer, CEO, stated

With gold production for the first half of 2014 of 228,000 ounces we now expect to achieve the top end of the guidance range of 400,000 to 440,000 ounces for the full year.  We have also been focused on managing our costs and are pleased with the continued improvements in Q2 as compared to Q1 and as compared to last year.  Our six-month AISC per ounce of $1,039 is within our full-year guidance range of $985 to $1,070.

During Q2, we converted the Tabakoto mine to owner mining.  We are very pleased that our underground mining team advanced the development of the new Segala mine and started delivering ore to the Tabakoto mill in late June, as planned.  This was a challenge for our operators as not all of the owner-mining fleet was on site during the quarter.  Our successful transition was in large part due to our ability to retain over 300 employees from the contractor.

The conversion to owner-mining at Tabakoto is now behind us.  Looking forward we expect mining costs will reduce as the ore production from Segala ramps up during the second half of 2014.  At Segala, we are currently mining from two stopes and four more are in development.  We are also developing additional sources of long-term mill feed to supplement ore from the two underground mines.  During the quarter, the Kofi Nord permit was received which includes all eight of the known Kofi mineral deposits.  The Kofi C deposit with a reserve grade of 4.26 g/t Au and open pit design promises to be a superior source of mill feed as compared to the Djambaye open pit which is scheduled to end its operating life in late 2014.  Endeavour's Construction Service Team is currently planning the 38km haul road to Kofi to optimize the route among all of the known deposits and initial production is scheduled for early 2015.

Q2 2014 Operational Results by Mine

Agbaou Gold Mine, Côte d'Ivoire

  • Gold production of 31,878 ounces in Q2 2014
  • Cash cost of $671/oz sold
  • Mine-level AISC of $728/oz sold (references to mine-level AISC includes cash costs, royalties, and sustaining capital)
  • Agbaou has been performing above plan due to higher than expected grade, mill throughput and strong recoveries

Tabakoto Gold Mine, Mali

  • Gold production of 36,408 ounces in Q2 2014
  • Cash cost of $1,133/oz sold
  • Mine-level AISC of $1,283/oz sold
  • Cash costs and AISC are expected to improve by Q4 as Segala moves toward full production
  • Segala development is progressing well and by July 17, 2014 3,945 metres of lateral development has been completed on four levels to provide access to the ore body.  Mining of underground stoping ore commenced during Q2 2014
  • The Kofi Nord permit was received during Q2 2014.  The Kofi C deposit is now incorporated into the Tabakoto production schedule in 2015

Nzema Gold Mine, Ghana

  • Gold production of 35,946 ounces in Q2 2014
  • Cash cost of $758/oz sold
  • Mine-level AISC of $916/oz sold
  • Mined grade of 2.05 g/t in Q2 2014 is significantly above 1.31 g/t mined in Q2 2013 as mining has progressed to deeper levels in the Adamus Pit
  • Milled grade was 3.13 g/t in Q2 2014 compared to 1.59 g/t in Q2 2013 as a result of processing ore with improved mined grade and the inclusion of higher grade purchased ore from third parties

Youga Gold Mine, Burkina Faso

  • Gold production of 18,285 ounces in Q2 2014
  • Cash cost of $803/oz sold
  • Mine-level AISC of $888/oz sold
