TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Oct. 31, 2013) - Alamos Gold Inc. (News - Market indicators)(NYSE:AGI) ("Alamos" or the "Company") today reported its financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 and reviewed its operating, exploration and development activities.

"Production of 43,000 ounces in the third quarter of 2013 was consistent with our expectations and total cash costs of $491 per ounce and all-in sustaining costs of $810 per ounce were in line with guidance and remain among the lowest in the industry. The gold price continued to trend lower in the third quarter; however, with our low cost structure we continue to generate strong margins with operating cash flow of $25.7 million. Our strong performance year to date with production of 151,000 ounces at total cash costs of $461 per ounce has us well positioned to meet our 2013 production guidance of between 180,000 and 200,000 ounces of gold at total cash costs of between $500 and $520 per ounce of gold sold," said John A. McCluskey, President and Chief Executive Officer.

"The third quarter was marked by several significant accomplishments with respect to our development pipeline. We received EIA approval for our Kirazli project, advancing it one step closer to initial production. We also completed the acquisitions of Esperanza and Orsa, significantly enhancing our peer leading and fully funded growth profile, while preserving our enviable position in the industry with a very strong balance sheet," Mr. McCluskey added.

Third Quarter 2013 Financial Results

The Company generated strong cash from operating activities in the third quarter of 2013, despite a substantial drop in the price of gold. Cash from operating activities before changes in non-cash working capital in the third quarter of 2013 of $26.4 million ($0.21 per share) decreased 31% relative to the same period of 2012 as a result of lower gold prices and higher cash costs. After changes in non-cash working capital, cash provided by operating activities dropped to $25.7 million from $34.9 million in the third quarter of the prior year.

Earnings before income taxes in the third quarter of 2013 were $15.0 million or $0.12 per basic share, compared to $36.8 million or $0.31 per basic share in the third quarter of 2012. On an after-tax basis, earnings in the third quarter of 2013 of $9.2 million, or $0.07 per basic share, decreased 64% over the comparable period of 2012 as a result of lower realized gold prices, increased corporate and administrative costs, increased amortization costs and a higher effective tax rate.

Capital expenditures in the third quarter of 2013 totalled $13.1 million. Sustaining capital spending in Mexico in the third quarter of 2013 of $5.1 million consisted of $1.7 million for component changes on mobile equipment, $1.0 million for mobile equipment, $0.9 million for improvements to the camp at Mulatos, and $1.5 million invested in other smaller capital projects.

In addition, the Company invested $5.2 million in Mexico focused on development of the road to the El Victor and San Carlos deposits; continued development activities at the Escondida Deep portal; and capitalized exploration. The Company also invested $2.8 million in development projects in Turkey, focused on exploration, engineering and permitting work.

Key financial highlights for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013 and 2012 are presented at the end of this release in Table 1. The unaudited interim consolidated statements of financial position, comprehensive income, and cash flows for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013 and 2012 are presented at the end of this release in Table 2.

Third Quarter 2013 Operating Results

Gold production of 43,000 ounces in the third quarter of 2013 decreased marginally compared to 43,500 ounces in the third quarter of 2012. On a year to date basis, gold production increased 14% to 151,000 ounces relative to 2012. Gold production in the third quarter of 2013 was consistent with the third quarter of 2012, as the 31% decrease in the grade of ore stacked and milled was offset by an 18% increase in throughput and a 21% higher recovery ratio.

Crusher throughput in the third quarter of 2013 averaged 18,000 tpd, 18% higher than 15,200 tpd in the same period of last year. Despite the rainy season, the Company was able to achieve record quarterly throughput. During the third quarter of 2013, mill throughput continued to meet budgeted levels of 500 tpd.

The grade of the crushed ore stacked on the leach pad in the third quarter of 2013 of 0.99 g/t Au was in line with the full year budgeted grade of 0.98 g/t Au, and lower than the grade in the third quarter of 2012 of 1.25 g/t Au. On a year-to-date basis, the grade of crushed ore stacked on the leach pad is 1.11 g/t Au, well above the full year budgeted grade of 0.98 g/t Au.

The grade of the Escondida high-grade zone mined and milled in the third quarter of 2013 was 6.73 g/t Au, below the Company's full year budgeted average grade of 11 g/t Au. The lower grade milled in the third quarter was the result of a change to the mine plan in order to accelerate access to the Escondida Deep portal. On a project-to-date basis, the grade of ore mined and milled from the Escondida high-grade zone is 10.54 g/t Au. The Company expects to have sufficient Escondida high-grade zone reserves to continue processing until the end of the first quarter of 2014 based on current throughput, at which point the Escondida Deep zone is expected to provide additional feed to continue mill production to the end of the second quarter of 2014. The Company intends to transition to processing high grade from the San Carlos zone once the Escondida Deep zone has been depleted.

The reconciliation of mined blocks to the block model for the Global Mulatos Pit, including Escondida, for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 was +20%, -12 % and +6% for tonnes, grade and ounces respectively. Since the start of mining activities in 2005, the Mulatos project-to-date reconciliation is +4%, +6%, and +9% for tonnes, grade and ounces, respectively. Positive variances indicate that the Company is mining more gold than was indicated in the reserve model.

The recovery ratio in the third quarter was 70%, a substantial improvement from 58% in the third quarter of 2012. On a year to date basis in 2013, the recovery ratio of 74% is just below the Company's budget of 75%.

Cash operating costs (exclusive of the 5% royalty) of $434 per ounce of gold sold in the third quarter of 2013 were within the Company's annual guidance of $415 to $435 per ounce. On a year-to-date basis, cash operating costs are $389 per ounce. Cash operating costs were 21% higher compared with costs reported in the third quarter of 2012 as a result of lower grades of ore stacked and milled, as well as higher input costs, including labour, cyanide and diesel, partially offset by a higher recovery ratio. Including the 5% royalty, total cash costs were $491 per ounce of gold sold in the third quarter of 2013.

Key operational metrics and production statistics for the third quarter and year to date in 2013 compared to the same periods of 2012 are presented in Table 3 at the end of this press release.

Turkey Developments

In August 2013, the Company received an EIA Positive Decision Certificate for Kirazli from the Ministry of the Environment and Urbanization. The EIA for Aği Daği has been submitted and is currently under review. The Company is now awaiting forestry and operating permits from the Federal and Provincial levels of the Turkish government. Assuming all permits are received in the fourth quarter of 2013, the Company anticipates first production from Kirazli in the first half of 2015.

Acquisition of Esperanza

On August 30, 2013, the Company completed the acquisition of Esperanza, and its 100%-owned Esperanza gold project located in Morelos State, Mexico.

The Company paid net cash of $44.7 million and issued an aggregate of 7.2 million warrants in total consideration for Esperanza. In addition, a third party has a 3% royalty on production from the Esperanza gold project. The total purchase price was $88.1 million, which includes the fair value ascribed to the warrants of $21.7 million and transaction costs of $0.7 million.

The Company acquired the Esperanza gold project given its relatively low capital intensity, potential for low cash costs and low technical risks, and its potential to increase production in Mexico by over 50%. The Company is working towards resubmission of an EIA report and intends to prepare an internal feasibility study to further support development of the project.

Acquisition of Orsa

On September 13, 2013, the Company completed the acquisition of Orsa, and its right to earn a 100% interest in the Quartz Mountain Property in Oregon as well as other assets in Oregon and Nevada.

The Company paid $3.5 million, including transaction costs of $0.1 million. As part of the acquisition of Orsa, the Company inherited an option agreement with Seabridge Gold Inc. ("Seabridge") whereby the Company has the option to earn a 100% interest in the Quartz Mountain Property ("Quartz Mountain") and a 50% joint venture interest in the adjacent Angel's Camp Gold Property. Both properties are located in Lake County, southern Oregon on the northern extension of the Basin and Range Province of Nevada. Both properties are subject to underlying royalties.

Under the terms of the agreements, the Company made a payment of CAD$2 million to Seabridge on October 23, 2013 and is required to pay an additional CAD$3 million on completion of a compliant feasibility study and a positive production decision. Further, an additional payment of CAD$15 million or a 2% net smelter return royalty is payable on successful permitting of the project.

Mexican Tax Reform

On September 8, 2013, the Executive Branch of the Mexican government presented its 2014 Tax Reform bill to Congress with a proposed effective date of January 1, 2014. On October 18, 2013, the Chamber of Deputies (Lower House of Congress) approved the bill with certain amendments. On October 29, 2013, the Tax Commission of the Senate (Upper House of Congress) approved the tax reform bill and final Senate approval is expected shortly.

There are a number of significant changes in the tax reform that will impact the Company effective January 1, 2014. Specifically, a 7.5% royalty calculated based on earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization is expected to be imposed. In addition, a 0.5% additional royalty calculated based on revenues would be levied. Further, the planned corporate tax rate reductions to 29% in 2014 and 28% thereafter would be repealed and the tax rate will remain at 30%. In addition, a 10% withholding tax on dividend distributions has been proposed. Other aspects of the proposed tax reform will impact the Company as well. These changes to the Federal Tax Code are significant and, if enacted, are expected to increase the Company's tax burden in Mexico. The Company is in the process of evaluating and quantifying this impact.

Third Quarter 2013 Exploration Update

Total exploration expenditures in the third quarter of 2013 were $4.0 million. At Mulatos, total exploration spending was $2.9 million, which included $0.9 million of drilling costs at San Carlos and infill drilling at Mulatos, which were capitalized and $2.0 million of drilling costs at East Estrella, El Realito and Puerto del Aire ("PdA"), and administration costs, which were expensed. Total exploration spending in Turkey was $0.4 million, of which $0.3 million was capitalized. Further, $0.7 million of spending at the Esperanza gold project was capitalized as development costs in the third quarter. These costs were primarily related to the collection of baseline study data to support resubmission of the EIA.

Exploration - Mulatos

Exploration expenditures in Mexico in the third quarter of 2013 totalled $2.9 million. The Company completed 17,447 metres ("m") of reverse circulation ("RC") and core drilling in 95 holes in the third quarter. The primary focus in the third quarter was on continuing infill and step-out drilling programs at East Estrella, Escondida Deep, and continued directional drilling at San Carlos on the Northeast Extension. Overall, five drill rigs were active during the third quarter.

East Estrella

Exploration drilling directly east of the southeast wall of the Mulatos pit continued through the quarter. A new target in the East Estrella area was recently identified by work in the hanging wall of the fault that bounds the mineral resource. This new target is an area of shallow gold mineralization directly to the northeast of the mineral resource.

Escondida Deep

The current work program at Escondida Deep is focused on additional infill definition drilling that will be used for purposes of underground mine planning. Historical drilling at Escondida Deep was RC, and widely spaced, therefore there was no definitive mapping to ascertain the location of fault zones. The current work program is being done in advance of underground testing in order to better define the mineralized high-grade zone.

Puerto del Aire ("PdA")

The work program on PdA is focused on following up on, and delineating higher-grade zones of gold mineralization under the post-mineral cover rocks. PdA is a high-grade underground target because of the thickness of overlying strata on the mineralized host rock.

El Realito

Work to date in 2013 at El Realito has focused on completing infill definition drilling on the known higher-grade mineralization in the southwestern portion of the main zone. Information to date shows that there is variability in the oxide gold mineralization, therefore close spaced drilling is being performed based upon historical drilling results. Additional drilling is required on this open pit target due to the oxide nature of the gold mineralization.

San Carlos

Drilling at San Carlos was limited until the end of the rainy season. High-grade intercepts have been encountered up to 500 m from the existing open pit boundary. This extension of San Carlos provides excellent potential for adding high-grade underground ounces in close proximity to planned infrastructure. Drill progress has been relatively slow at San Carlos due to the complexity associated with directional drilling deep, deviating holes that have to be steered to the target.

Outlook

The Company produced 151,000 ounces in the nine months ended September 30, 2013 and remains on track to meet its full year 2013 production guidance of between 180,000 and 200,000 ounces of gold at an average total cash cost of between $500 and $520 per ounce of gold sold. Factoring in exploration spending, corporate and administrative costs, share based compensation and sustaining capital costs, the Company expects all-in sustaining cost per ounce to average between $785 and $825 in 2013.

In the third quarter of 2013, the gold price continued its decline averaging $1,326 for the quarter, a 6% decrease from the average price in the second quarter and a 20% drop since the start of the year. Alamos' disciplined approach to growth and continuous improvement initiatives has consistently resulted in industry-leading operating costs, positioning the Company to generate strong operating margins even in a lower gold price environment. As a result, the current downturn in the gold price has had a limited impact on the Company's current operating and development plans, and has created opportunities for the Company to acquire projects that meet its acquisition criteria.

In Mexico, the Company is focused on maintaining strong crusher throughput in order to achieve budgeted 2013 production. The Escondida high-grade deposit is expected to continue to provide high grade mill feed until early 2014, at which point the Escondida Deep zone will be accessed to provide mill feed for an additional quarter. The Company received the permits and began development of the El Victor and San Carlos deposit areas in the third quarter of 2013, with the anticipation of processing high grade from San Carlos in mid-2014. The current focus of exploration at Mulatos is on delineating additional high-grade mineral reserves to continue to provide mill feed beyond the life of the Escondida high-grade deposit.

With the completion of the Esperanza and Orsa acquisitions, the Company has grown its development pipeline substantially. The Esperanza gold project has the potential to grow production in Mexico by more than 50%, or nearly 30% on a consolidated basis. The Company will work on revising the EIA report for planned resubmission with a construction decision to follow in 2015.

In Turkey, the Kirazli EIA was approved in August 2013 and the Company continues to pursue its forestry and operating permits. Provided these permits are in place prior to 2013 year-end, the Company anticipates production from Kirazli in the first half of 2015. Further, the EIA for Aği Daği, the Company's second late-stage development project in Turkey, has advanced to the final stages of the approval process.

The Company ended the quarter with approximately $434 million in cash and short-term investments, over $460 million in working capital and no debt. The Company pays a substantial dividend and has a share buyback program in place. Alamos' financial strength and flexibility and low cost operating structure provide it with the ability to aggressively pursue its capital allocation plans, including future organic growth and acquisitions.

Note to U.S. Investors

Alamos prepares its disclosure in accordance with the requirements of securities laws in effect in Canada, which differ from the requirements of U.S. securities laws. Terms relating to mineral resources in this presentation are defined in accordance with National Instrument 43-101 - Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects under the guidelines set out in the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy, and Petroleum Standards on Mineral Resources and Mineral Reserves. The United States Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") permits mining companies, in their filings with the SEC, to disclose only those mineral deposits that a company can economically and legally extract or produce. Alamos may use certain terms, such as "measured mineral resources", "indicated mineral resources", "inferred mineral resources" and "probable mineral reserves" that the SEC does not recognize (these terms may be used in this presentation and are included in the public filings of Alamos, which have been filed with the SEC and the securities commissions or similar authorities in Canada).

Cautionary non-GAAP Measures and Additional GAAP Measures

Note that for purposes of this section, GAAP refers to IFRS. The Company believes that investors use certain non-GAAP and additional GAAP measures as indicators to assess gold mining companies. They are intended to provide additional information and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance prepared with GAAP. Non-GAAP and additional GAAP measures do not have a standardized meaning prescribed under IFRS and therefore may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies.

  1. Cash flow from operating activities before changes in non-cash working capital

"Cash flow from operating activities before changes in non-cash working capital" is a non-GAAP performance measure that could provide an indication of the Company's ability to generate cash flows from operations, and is calculated by adding back the change in non-cash working capital to "Cash provided by (used in) operating activities" as presented on the Company's consolidated statements of cash flows.

The following table reconciles the non-GAAP measure to the consolidated statements of cash flows.

  Q3 2013 Q3 2012 YTD 2013 YTD 2012
Cash flow from operating activities - IFRS (000) $ 25,697 $ 34,901 $ 71,540 $ 114,279
Changes in non-cash working capital (000)   665   3,321   29,001   10,732
Cash flow from operating activities before changes in non-cash working capital (000) $ 26,362 $ 38,222 $ 100,541 $ 125,011
  1. Mining cost per tonne of ore

"Mining cost per tonne of ore" and "Cost per tonne of ore" are non-GAAP performance measures that could provide an indication of the mining and processing efficiency and effectiveness of the mine. These measures are calculated by dividing the relevant mining and processing costs and total costs by the tonnes of ore processed in the period. "Cost per tonne of ore" is usually affected by operating efficiencies and waste-to-ore ratios in the period.

The following table reconciles the non-GAAP measure to the consolidated statements of comprehensive income.

  Q3 2013 Q3 2012 YTD 2013 YTD 2012
Mining and processing costs - IFRS (000) $ 20,855 $ 15,519 $ 60,618 $ 46,688
Inventory adjustments and period costs (000)   453   3,831   974   3,659
Total cost (000) $ 21,308 $ 19,350 $ 61,592 $ 50,347
Tonnes Ore stacked / milled (000)   1,656.9   1,394.1   4,868.9   4,174.7
Total cost per tonne of ore $ 12.86 $ 13.88 $ 12.65 $ 12.06
  1. Cash operating costs per ounce and total cash costs per ounce

"Cash operating costs per ounce" and "total cash costs per ounce" as used in this analysis are non-GAAP terms typically used by gold mining companies to assess the level of gross margin available to the Company by subtracting these costs from the unit price realized during the period. These non-GAAP terms are also used to assess the ability of a mining company to generate cash flow from operations. There may be some variation in the method of computation of "cash operating costs per ounce" as determined by the Company compared with other mining companies. In this context, "cash operating costs per ounce" reflects the cash operating costs allocated from in-process and dore inventory associated with ounces of gold sold in the period. "Cash operating costs per ounce" may vary from one period to another due to operating efficiencies, waste-to-ore ratios, grade of ore processed and gold recovery rates in the period. "Total cash costs per ounce" includes "cash operating costs per ounce" plus applicable royalties. Cash operating costs per ounce and total cash costs per ounce are exclusive of exploration costs.

The following table reconciles these non-GAAP measures to the consolidated statements of comprehensive income.

  1. All-in sustaining cost per ounce

Effective 2013, in conjunction with a non-GAAP initiative being undertaken by the gold mining industry, the Company is adopting an "all-in sustaining cost per ounce" non-GAAP performance measure. The Company believes the measure more fully defines the total costs associated with producing gold; however, this performance measure has no standardized meaning. Accordingly, there may be some variation in the method of computation of "all-in sustaining cost per ounce" as determined by the Company compared with other mining companies. In this context, "all-in sustaining cost per ounce" reflects total mining and processing costs, corporate and administrative costs, exploration costs, sustaining capital, and other operating costs. Sustaining capital expenditures are expenditures that do not increase annual gold ounce production at a mine site and excludes all expenditures at the Company's development projects as well as certain expenditures at the Company's operating sites that are deemed expansionary in nature.

The following table reconciles these non-GAAP measures to the consolidated statements of comprehensive income.

  1. All-in cost

Effective 2013, in conjunction with a non-GAAP initiative being undertaken by the gold mining industry, the Company is adopting an "all-in cost per ounce" non-GAAP performance measure; however, this performance measure has no standardized meaning. Accordingly, there may be some variation in the method of computation of "all-in cost per ounce" as determined by the Company compared with other mining companies. In this context, "all-in cost per ounce" reflects total all-in sustaining cash costs, plus capital, operating, and exploration costs associated with the Company's development projects.

  1. Other additional GAAP measures

Additional GAAP measures that are presented on the face of the Company's consolidated statements of comprehensive income and are not meant to be a substitute for other subtotals or totals presented in accordance with IFRS, but rather should be evaluated in conjunction with such IFRS measures. The following additional GAAP measures are used and are intended to provide an indication of the Company's mine and operating performance:

  • Mine operating costs - represents the total of mining and processing, royalties, and amortization expense
  • Earnings from mine operations - represents the amount of revenues in excess of mining and processing, royalties, and amortization expense.
  • Earnings from operations - represents the amount of earnings before net finance income/expense, foreign exchange gain/loss, other income/loss, and income tax expense.
