TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Oct. 6, 2011) - Anaconda Mining Inc. ("Anaconda" or "the Company") (News - Market indicators) is pleased to announce certain preliminary financial results for the first quarter of fiscal year 2012, ended August 31, 2011. During the first quarter, the Company sold 2,858 ounces of gold, generating over $4.5 million in revenue and approximately $1.1 million in earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA")1. Anaconda's Pine Cove gold mine generated over $1.5 million in EBITDA at an average gold sales price of $1,581 per ounce and total cash costs (before exploration expenses) of $1,012 per ounce. The following table summarizes selected operating and financial results for the first quarter ended August 31, 2011.

  FY Q1 '12
   
Gold sales volume (troy oz.) 2,858
   
FINANCIAL RESULTS:  
Revenue $4,519,358
Pine Cove EBITDA $1,539,713
Pine Cove + Corp. EBITDA $1,119,886
   
UNIT ECONOMICS:  
Revenue per oz. sold $1,581
Pine Cove cash cost per oz. sold1 $1,012
Pine Cove + Corp. cash cost per oz. sold $1,189
1 - Excludes exploration costs incurred.

The financial results were achieved during a period where the mine and mill were not operating at levels indicative of expected long-term performance levels. These operating shortfalls were described in the press release dated September 14, 2011 and included:

  • the ore mined was below life-of-mine grade with the average grade being 1.51 grams per tonne for the first quarter of fiscal year 2012 versus life-of-mine average grade of 2.07 grams per tonne;
  • the average recovery for the quarter was approximately 76%, but had climbed to 80% by August, indicative of improvements to the processing circuit achieved during the quarter; and
  • the Pine Cove mill only had 84% availability in August due primarily to drum filter limitations, of which, as noted in the September 14th press release, the original drum filters are currently in the process of being replaced by new filters.

Anaconda expects the overall mill recovery to maintain an 80% target rate and the mill modifications that are currently being finalized will help sustain availability rates in the mid 90% range. Grade has been improving as Pine Cove has experienced average mill feed over 2 grams per tonne for September.

President and CEO, Dustin Angelo, stated, "We're quite pleased with the results achieved during the first quarter despite less than average ore grade levels and lower plant availability. Pine Cove is nearing completion of its mill modifications, including the installation of two new drum filters. The grades that are currently being mined and processed are above the average mine grade of 2.07 grams per tonne gold. We expect that by mid October we should begin to see the mill perform more consistently at higher levels of availability and overall gold recovery as we process the higher grade material now available to the mill. The cash we generated during this quarter has helped to pay down payables, service our debt and invest in the mine."
