(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 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 are 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 final 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)Precious metal gold equivalent mill production for the three months ended March 31, 2015 of 19,347 ounces differs from gold equivalent ounces sold for the same period of 18,880 due principally to buyer (smelter) concentrate processing and other deductions of approximately 1,487 gold equivalent ounces and a decrease in gold equivalent ounces contained in ending inventory of approximately 941 ounces.
(4)Non-GAAP measure to total mine cost of sales reconciliation, which is the most comparable United States generally accepted accounting principles ("U.S. GAAP") measure.
