(1)Mill production represents metal contained in concentrates produced at the mill, which is before payable metal deductions are levied by the buyer of our concentrates. Payable metal deduction quantities are defined in our contracts with the buyer of our concentrates and represent an estimate of metal contained in the concentrates produced at our mill, for which the buyer cannot recover through the smelting process. There are inherent limitations and differences in the sampling method and assaying of estimated metal contained in concentrates that are shipped, and those contained metal estimates derived from sampling methods and assaying throughout the mill production process. The Company monitors these differences to ensure that precious metal mill production quantities are materially correct.
(2)Average metal prices realized vary from the market metal prices due to out of period settlement adjustments from our provisional invoices when they are settled. Our average metal prices realized will therefore differ from the market average metal prices in most cases.
(3)A reconciliation of this Non-GAAP measure to total mine cost of sales, the most comparable U.S. GAAP measure, can be found in Management's Discussion and Analysis contained in the report on Form 10-Q for the period ended June 30, 2014 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
(4)Precious metal gold equivalent mill production for the three months ended June 30, 2014 of 24,172 ounces differs from gold equivalent ounces sold for the same period of 20,647 due principally to buyer (smelter) concentrate processing deductions of approximately 3,341 gold equivalent ounces and an increase in gold equivalent ounces contained in ending inventory of approximately 184 ounces.
(5)Precious metal gold equivalent mill production for the six months ended June 30, 2014 of 47,896 ounces differs from gold equivalent ounces sold for the same period of 41,241 principally due to buyer (smelter) concentrate processing deductions of approximately 5,459 gold equivalent ounces and an increase in gold equivalent ounces contained in ending inventory of approximately 1,196 ounces.
