Sabina Gold & Silver Announces Financial Results for the Year Ended 2015

$18.4 million at December 31, 2015 in cash and equivalents


VANCOUVER - Today Sabina Gold & Silver Corp. ('Sabina') or (the 'Company') (SBB - TSX) reported the financial results for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2015.

'As planned, 2015 was a transformational year for Sabina,' said Bruce McLeod, the Company's President& CEO. 'During the course of the year: we delivered a fit for purpose robust feasibility study on the Back River Gold Project ('Back River' or the 'Project') using a gold price of US$1,150 per ounce; we made great strides in evaluating 30 years of exploration data at Back River defining a multitude of targets, which culminated in the discovery of two new very prospective zones at the Goose Property; we advanced Back River through the environmental assessment phase and are nearing the completion of that process with our final hearings coming up at the end of April; and we have focused on treasury conservation and reduced costs company-wide.' He said. 'Through our work, we believe we are demonstrating a first in class Company with a world class asset. Our efforts have begun to reward shareholders as Sabina was one of the best performing development companies on the TSX in 2015. We believe that the catalysts we can deliver by de-risking the Project in 2016 will continue the re-rating of the Company and continue to create value for our shareholders.'

2015 Highlights:

  • The Company had cash and cash equivalents and short-term investments of $18.4 million at December 31, 2015.
  • During the year, the Company completed two feasibility studies on the Back River Project. The first, announced in May 2015 demonstrated a large scale 6,000 tonne per day ('tpd') project. The study returned very compelling economics, however given the significant initial capital and execution risk associated with the large scale scenario, in July 2015, a second feasibility was undertaken to assess a smaller initial operation focused on the Goose project only.
  • In September 2015, the Company completed and announced positive results of its initial project feasibility study ('FS') on the Back River gold project. The base case economics, in Canadian dollars, assumed a gold price of US$1,150 per ounce and an exchange rate of 0.80 (US$:C$). The Project's highlights include:
    • A post-tax IRR of 24.2% and NPV (at a 5% discount rate) of $480.3 million;
    • LOM post-tax net cash flow of $782 million on gross revenues of $3.2 billion with a payback period of 2.9 years (from start of operations);
    • Processing rate of 3,000 tpd with average gold production of 244,000 oz in the first 8 years;
    • Produces an average of ~198,000 oz Au per year (post commencement of commercial production);
    • Majority of production from open pit mining method (72% LOM) with no underground production scheduled until year 3 (after payback);
    • Initial capital estimate of $415 million and sustaining capital estimate of $185 million;
    • Total LOM cash costs of US$534/oz Au (including third party royalties, refining and transport). LOM all-in sustaining cash costs of US$598/ oz Au LOM (including sustaining capital);
    • A total of 12.4 million tonnes of ore to be milled over 11.8 years with a LOM average grade of 6.3 grams per tonne ('g/t') Au and metallurgical recoveries of 93%;
    • Diesel price of $0.91/L (delivered) for power generation; and
    • Open pit strip ratio of 10.5:1 over LOM.
  • In the second quarter, during a six-week field program at the Goose property, the Company completed two exploration drill holes focused on shallow targets at Hivogani and Nalaot. Results from these holes identified a new target type and gold mineralization style and continued to demonstrate project-wide gold endowment and potential for greenfield resource growth.
  • In the third quarter, the Company conducted a field exploration program focused on generating new targets at the Goose project. A prospecting program resulted in the discovery of the Kogoyok target, a new zone of outcropping mineralization where grab samples have returned gold values including 33.86g/t, 28.10g/t and 18.23g/t.
  • In January 2015, the Company announced that it had completed the review process on its draft environmental impact statement ('DEIS'). The Company received the Pre-Hearing Conference Decision document from the Nunavut Impact Review Board ('NIRB'). The NIRB report summarizes the collaboration and discussion with all participants on subjects such as caribou, marine/shipping, socio economic effects, tailing storage, among others and the commitments made by the Company to incorporate further data, reasonable mitigation measures, and preferred processes into the Project and its final environmental impact statement ('FEIS'). In December 2015, the Company submitted the FEIS to NIRB. The FEIS was deemed conformant with NIRB requirements and a technical review process commenced. Final public hearings are scheduled for April 25-30, 2016 in Cambridge Bay, Nunavut.
  • In July 2015, the Company completed a flow-through equity financing of 2,661,600 flow-through common shares at $0.50 per share for gross proceeds of approximately $1.3 million. The July financing was fully subscribed by directors and employees and resulted in a significant increase in insider ownership. In November, 2015, the Company completed a flow-through equity financing of 2,857,142 flow-through common shares at $0.77 per share for gross proceeds of approximately $2.2 million.
  • During the year, the Company focused on a number of cost saving measures, including additional staff reductions, a 50% reduction of directors' fees and a reduction of the number of board members.
Financial Results

In the fourth quarter, 2015, the Company reported a net loss of $4.6 million compared to a net loss of $2.4 million in the same period of 2014. The difference quarter over quarter was largely the result of a write-down of $4.0 million on certain non-core Wishbone mineral properties and share-based payments of $1.0 million, partially offset by deferred income tax recovery of $1.2 million.

For the year ended December 31, 2015, the Company reported a net loss of $9.5 million, compared to a net loss of $5.1 million for the same period in 2014. The loss in 2015 was higher by $4.4 million as a result of: higher write downs on mineral properties ($2.7 million); a higher impairment loss on and equity investments ($1.8 million); and increased share based payments ($0.8 million).
