PERTH, WESTERN AUSTRALIA--(Marketwire - Feb. 26, 2013) - Troy Resources Limited ("Troy") (ASX:TRY)(News - Market indicators) -


Troy has today reported a net profit of A$13.5 million for the six month period ending 31 December 2012 ("half-year"). The half year financial statements are available on the Troy website at and will also be available under the Company's profile on the SEDAR website.

Key highlights for the half-year include:

  • Profit increased by 27% compared to the previous corresponding half to A$13.5 million.
  • Revenue increased by 23% to A$108.9 million for the half-year despite gold and silver prices being 1% and 6.5% lower respectively than the previous corresponding half.
  • Gold equivalent production increased by 2% to 66,603 ounces.
  • Exploration expenditure is up 31% to A$9.3 million for the half-year.
  • Cash and cash equivalents totalled A$41.5 million at 31 December 2012 after payment of A$6.7 million in cash dividends and A$15.5 million in principal and interest payments on the Investec loan facility. The Company was debt free as at 31 December 2012.
  • The Board of Directors has confirmed that the Company is committed to the payment of a dividend based on the full year results to be published in August 2013.

The result was achieved after expensing A$5.1m (2011: A$3.3m) and capitalising A$4.2m (2011: A$4.2m) in exploration expenditure and expensing A$17.1m for amortisation and depreciation (2011: A$17.2m).

Commenting on the results Troy CEO Paul Benson said: "This is a solid result with a headline after tax profit of A$13.5m and has enabled the Company to retire its debt facility ahead of schedule.

"We invested A$9.3m in exploration in the half-year mostly focused on expanding the Inca and B-Vein Resources and testing new targets at Casposo. Pleasingly the underground mining contractor at Casposo has achieved a significant increase in development rates and intersected the highest level of the Inca 1 ore body in the second week of February. Although only about 20m of sill has been developed to date, the best channel sample so far is 3.8m at 43.88 g/t gold equivalent (refer Appendix 1).

"We remain on track to see high grade underground ore enter the mill blend in the June Quarter."
