OCEANAGOLD REPORTS SECOND QUARTER 2017 RESULTS

27 July 2017
 

MEDIA RELEASE
 

(All financial figures in US Dollars unless otherwise stated)
 

(MELBOURNE) OceanaGold Corporation (TSX/ASX: OGC) (the �Company�) is pleased to release its financial and operational results for the quarter ended 30 June 2017. Details of the consolidated financial statements and the Management Discussion and Analysis (�MD&A�) are available on the Company�s website at www.oceanagold.com.

Key Highlights

� Consolidated production of 272,352 ounces of gold and 10,277 tonnes of copper in the first half of 2017, including 124,396 ounces of gold and 4,322 tonnes of copper in the second quarter. 

� Consolidated year-to-date All-In Sustaining Costs of $599 per ounce on sales of 228,214 ounces of gold (excluding Haile) and 9,976 tonnes of copper.

� Consolidated second quarter All-In Sustaining Costs of $681 per ounce on sales of 114,192 ounces of gold (excluding Haile) and 5,828 tonnes of copper.

� First half revenue of $333.5 million with EBITDA of $186.4 million and a net profit of $61.4 million.

� Second quarter revenue of $171.7 million with an EBITDA of $84..7 million and a net profit of $25.4 million.

� Completed the Haile Optimisation Study which demonstrated significant value enhancement through increased production and cash flows over a longer mine life and a 70% increase in total reserves.

� Immediate liquidity of $126.8 million including $81.6 million in cash, excluding $71.6 million of marketable securities held in strategic investments.

� Continued encouraging exploration results.

Mick Wilkes, President and CEO of OceanaGold said, �The first half of the year yielded strong financial and operating results from our diversified portfolio of assets. The Didipio operation continued its strong performance delivering strong cash flows and high-margin ounces to offset weaker production from Haile where production is improving as we rectify the commissioning issues previously flagged.�

He added, �Although commissioning of the Haile process plant has taken longer than expected, it is still a top-tier asset as reflected by the results of the optimisation study. Over the next 18 years or more we expect the Haile Gold Mine to deliver significant cash flows and remain excited about the long term exploration potential of the district.  We plan to be operating there for a very long time.�

Table 1 � Production and Cost Results Summary

 

Table 2 � Consolidated Financial Summary*

 

On a consolidated basis, during the first half of 2017 the Company achieved production of 272,352 ounces of gold and 10,277 tonnes of copper, including 124,396 ounces of gold and 4,322 tonnes of copper in the second quarter. The quarter-on-quarter decrease in consolidated gold production was expected and previously forecast and due primarily to lower production from the Didipio operation. In the second quarter. the Didipio head grade decreased following the cessation of open pit mining resulting in a higher proportion of lower grade stockpiled ore processed. Decreased production was also due to lower production from Haile where issues related to the commissioning of the Carbon-in-Leach (�CIL�) circuit along with load imbalances in the milling circuit led to lower throughputs and recoveries.

On a consolidated basis, and excluding Haile gold sales, during the first half of 2017, the Company recorded an AISC of $599 per ounce on sales of 228,214 ounces of gold and 9,976 tonnes of copper. During the second quarter, on a consolidated basis and excluding Haile gold sales, the Company recorded an AISC of $681 per ounce on sales of 114,192 ounces of gold and 5,828 tonnes of copper.

During the first half, the Company achieved revenue of $333.5 million including second quarter revenue of $171.7 million.

EBITDA in the first half of 2017 was $186.4 million including second quarter EBITDA of $84.7 million, which was lower quarter-on-quarter due to increased operating and general and administrative (�G&A�) costs, partially offset by higher revenue.

For the first half of 2017, the Company achieved a net profit of $61.4 million and a second quarter net profit of $25.4 million. The quarter-on-quarter decrease in net profit was a result of lower EBITDA, higher depreciation and amortisation costs and tax expense, which were partially offset by a gain on the fair value of undesignated hedges. 

Operating cash flow for the first half of the year was $140.7 million including $88.4 million in the second quarter. The increase in operating cash flow from the first quarter was primarily due to higher revenues and favorable working capital movements at Didipio following the reduction of gold-copper concentrate inventories and decrease in trade debtors.

At the end of the second quarter of 2017, the Company had immediate available liquidity of $126.8 million which included a cash balance of $81.6 million, excluding $71.6 million in marketable securities from strategic investments. During the quarter, the Company increased its revolving credit facilities to $330 million of which $284.8 million was drawn.
