  • 14,133 ounces AuEq mill production
  • 12,773 ounces AuEq sold
  • $19.4 million sales, net
  • $603 total cash cost per ounce AuEq (after by-product credits)
  • $6.4 million adjusted cash flow from mine site operations
  • $8.3 million by-product credits, or $647 per ounce AuEq sold
  • $1.6 million dividend distributions, or $0.03 per share for quarter

Overview of Q3 2015 Aguila Project Results

Gold Resource Corporation's Aguila Project produced 14,133 ounces AuEq at a total cash cost of $603 per ounce (after by-product credits). Realized average metal price sales during the quarter were $1,115 per ounce gold and $14.50 per ounce silver. The Company recorded a net loss of $0.5 million, or $(0.01) per share. Adjusted cash flow from mine site operations totaled $6.4 million. The Company paid $1.6 million to shareholders in dividends, or $0.03 per share during the quarter. Cash and cash equivalents at quarter end totaled $14.1 million. Realized gold and silver prices decreased 14% and 28%, respectively, compared to the third quarter of 2014.

(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) For the three months ended September 30, 2015, precious metal gold equivalent mill production differs from gold equivalent ounces sold due principally to buyer (smelter) concentrate processing and other deductions of approximately 1,204 gold equivalent ounces and a decrease in gold equivalent ounces contained in ending inventory of approximately 121 ounces.
(4) For the nine months ended September 30, 2015, precious metal gold equivalent mill production differs from gold equivalent ounces sold due principally to buyer (smelter) concentrate processing and other deductions of approximately 3,687 gold equivalent ounces and a decrease in gold equivalent ounces contained in ending inventory of approximately 279 ounces.
(5) For a reconciliation of this non-GAAP measure to total mine cost of sales, which is the most comparable U.S. GAAP measure, please see Non-GAAP Measures.
