Operations Overview for the Three Months Ended March 31, 2019
Anaconda sold 5,251 ounces of gold during the first quarter of 2019, generating gold revenue of $8.8 million at an average realized gold price1 of $1,671 per ounce sold. The 16% increase in gold sold over Q1 2018 was due to ounces in gold doré inventory from year-end being sold in January. Gold production of 4,176 ounces was 3% lower than Q1 2018, largely from the impact of lower mill availability due to planned maintenance on the main ball mill and unplanned maintenance for the regrind mill due to delayed shipment of trunnion liners, and the consequent decision to accelerate other maintenance programs (see details below). The Pine Cove Mill returned to operation during the first week of April. While the lower availability and the resulting throughput rate impacted quarterly production from a timing perspective, the Company was able to minimize gold recovery losses and greatly improve asset reliability and efficiency going forward. Further, mining operations continued during this period and the operation has established a robust stockpile of over 30,600 tonnes as at quarter-end.
The Company remains on track to produce and sell between 19,000 and 20,000 ounces of gold from continued mining at Stog'er Tight and pushbacks to the Pine Cove Pit, and the commencement of mining at Argyle in the second half of the year. While the final mining permits for Argyle are pending, the Company continues to finalize a mineral resource update and mine planning, which will incorporate the additional drilling completed since the last Mineral Resource Estimate as well as ongoing infill drilling. Mill throughput will be maintained throughout the year with marginal ore stockpiles available to supplement mill feed, although the Company continues to investigate opportunities to defer processing marginal ore.
