Corsa Files Fiscal 2012 Financial Results

TORONTO, Feb. 12, 2013 /CNW/ - Corsa Coal Corp. (TSXV: CSO) ("Corsa" or the "Company") announces that it has filed its Audited Consolidated Financial Statements and Management's Discussion and Analysis for the fiscal year ended November 30, 2012 on SEDAR and has posted these documents to its website

Fiscal 2012 highlights included:

  • Metallurgical coal sales of 332,000 clean tons at an average realized price of $148 per ton

  • An updated technical review on the Acosta Deep Project and on the Keyser Project as well as its surface mines and projects (full details were published in the January 21, 2013 press release)

  • The Casselman Mine updated technical report.

  • Production at the Casselman Mine ramped up in the third and fourth quarters as mining conditions improved and a second continuous mining unit commenced

  • The Company completed the purchase of the Keyser low volatile metallurgical coal project

  • Completed a $22 million  private placement of common shares

  • Refinanced the $25 million bridge loan

Refer to the Audited Consolidated Financial Statements and Management's Discussion and Analysis filed for the details of the financial performance of the Company and the matters referred to in this release including the technical reports and independent qualified person.

Production and Sales

The Company sold 332,000 tons of metallurgical coal at an average realized price of $148 per ton in 2012, (252,000 tons at an average realized price of $167 per ton in 2011).

Production of metallurgical coal from the Company's operations was 372,000 raw tons in 2012, of which 228,000 tons was from the Casselman Mine and 144,000 tons was from surface mines. In 2011, the Casselman Mine produced 37,000 raw tons and the surface mines produced 164,000 tons. The increase in production at the Casselman Mine resulted from the Mine being operational for the full year in 2012 compared with five months in 2011 and a significant improvement in mining conditions.

The Company purchases raw metallurgical coal from third parties for blending and processing at the Preparation Plant. In 2012, the Company purchased 211,000 raw tons of metallurgical coal (238,000 raw tons in 2011). The requirement for purchased coal decreased in 2012 as production from the Company's mines was greater in 2012 than 2011. The Company also purchased 8,000 clean tons of metallurgical coal in 2012.

The Preparation Plant processed 579,000 raw tons of metallurgical coal in 2012 compared with 365,000 raw tons in 2011 and produced 339,000 clean tons in 2012 compared with 226,000 tons in 2011. The increase in production resulted from a full year of operations in 2012 compared with six months in 2011. The Preparation Plant was under construction in early 2011 and began operating in June 2011.

Production of thermal coal from surface mines was 112,000 tons in 2012 compared with 169,000 tons in 2011. The Company sold 122,000 tons of thermal coal at an average realized price of $35 per ton in 2012 compared to 142,000 tons at an average realized price of $39 per ton in 2011.


As a result of global economic conditions and demand for steel, the metallurgical coal industry has experienced a slowdown that began in the fall of 2011 and has continued resulting in declining prices. While this weakness in the market has continued into the first quarter of 2013, the Company believes there are signs there may be a modest recovery in the demand and price for metallurgical coal over the course of 2013.

While the metallurgical coal market, as expected, continued to be weak into 2013, the Company has continued to be successful in achieving sales as a result of the quality of its low volatile metallurgical coal product. In addition to meeting its Q4 guidance, as at December 31, 2012 the Company had sales contracts and purchase orders for 170,000 tons of metallurgical coal for 2013 of which approximately 25,000 tons have been shipped.  The Company continues to actively market its high quality low volatile metallurgical coal and is in discussions with domestic and international buyers. Currently, the Company is shipping coal and continues to match production to actual sales and does not have unnecessary inventories of unsold coal. While the Company remains optimistic that further sales will be achieved, it only reports future sales based on currently contracted volumes.  For these reasons, the Company is not in a position to provide full production, sales and cost guidance for 2013 beyond the sales it has currently under contract until sales levels can be more accurately forecast.
