Eldorado Gold Reports 2018 Third Quarter Financial and Operating Results Including Positive Decision to Advance Kışladağ Mill

Oct 25, 2018

TSX: ELD   NYSE: EGO 

VANCOUVER, Oct. 25, 2018 /CNW/ - Eldorado Gold Corporation, ("Eldorado" or "the Company") today reports the Company's financial and operational results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2018.

Highlights from the Quarter and Subsequent Period 1  

  • Board approval to advance the Mill Project at Kışladağ: The feasibility study was completed and on October 25th the Board of Directors approved advancement of the mill project.

    Highlights of the project include:

    • Estimated capital investment of $520 million (including $384 million for the mill, $75 million for pre-stripping, and $61 million in contingency and growth allowance).
    • Estimated after-tax project net present value (NPV) of $392 million at a 5% discount rate, after-tax internal rate of return (IRR) of 20.4% and payback period of 3.9 years, all at an assumed gold price of $1,300.
    • Proven and Probable reserves materially the same as outlined in the National Instrument 43-101 ("NI 43-101") Pre-Feasibility Study filed in March 2018, of 3.0 million ounces at 0.81 g/t Au, accounting for depletion over the first four months of 2018, support a nine year mine life with average annual production of 270,000 ounces of gold at an all in sustaining cost ("AISC") of $793 per ounce.

  • Production ahead of plan and 2018 guidance revised higher: Quarterly gold production of 84,783 ounces, including 13,430 ounces from Lamaque pre-commercial production (Q3 2017: 70,053).
    • 2018 guidance further increased to 345,000-350,000 ounces. Cash operating costs are forecast at $600 - 650 per ounce sold.
    • Guidance for Kışladağ increased to 160,000-170,000 ounces, at a cash operating cost of $650 - 700 per ounce sold, including $300 per ounce sold of non-cash inventory changes.
    • Guidance for Olympias reduced to 45,000-50,000 ounces, at a cash operating cost of $600 - 700 per ounce sold.

  • Steady revenues from continuing operations: Total revenue from continuing operations during the third quarter was $81.1 million (Q3 2017: $95.4 million). Gold revenue from continuing operations was $76.0 million (Q3 2017: $84.4 million) on sales of 64,589 ounces of gold at an average realized gold price of $1,177 per ounce (Q3 2017: 65,439 ounces at $1,290 per ounce).

  • Continued strong financial liquidity: At quarter-end, the Company reported total liquidity of $635 million, consisting of $385 million in cash, cash equivalents and term deposits, and $250 million in undrawn lines of credit.

  • Positive quarterly cash flow: Net cash provided by operating activities of continuing operations was $23.2 million in the third quarter of 2018 (Q3 2017: $7.0 million net cash used by operating activities of continuing operations).

  • Key permitting milestones achieved: The Certificate of Authorization ("CofA") for the operation of the Sigma Mill at Lamaque was received during the quarter.

  • Updated asset profile: As a result of the completion of the feasibility study and the Board approval to advance the Kışladağ Mill Project, a review of the useful life of the Kışladağ heap leach assets resulted in an impairment charge of $117.6 million ($94.1 million net of deferred income tax recovery) recognized during the third quarter.

  • Net Loss attributable to shareholders: In the third quarter of 2018, net loss attributable to shareholders of the Company from continuing operations was $128.0 million ($0.16 per share) compared to a loss attributable to shareholders of the Company from continuing operations of $4.2 million ($0.01 per share) in the third quarter of 2017. Adjusted net loss in the third quarter of 2018 was $21.9 million, or ($0.03 per share) (Q3 2017: Adjusted net earnings of $1.3 million, or $0.00 per share), primarily as result of excluding the impact of the Kışladağ heap leach asset impairment noted above, in addition to other non-cash charges related to unrealized losses on deferred tax assets as a result of continuing currency devaluation in Turkey.

  • The Company is transitioning its reporting of Reserves and Resources from the first quarter of each year to the fourth quarter of each year. Reserves and Resources for 2018 will be reported by December 2018.

"We are pleased with this quarter's results and with the operational and financial progress Eldorado Gold has achieved in the first nine months of the year," said George Burns, Eldorado's President and Chief Executive Officer.  "As a result of the focus and effort of our team, we are increasing our production guidance for the second time this year.  With a robust balance sheet, significant operating cash flow, and a commitment to disciplined capital allocation, combined with G&A reductions and operational excellence, we are well positioned to advance our development projects in order to achieve annual gold production of 600,000 ounces per year in 2021."

"For the third quarter, gold production was ahead of plan driven by production from the Kışladağ leach pad and strong pre-commercial production from Lamaque.  From a development standpoint, we are very pleased with the progress at Lamaque.  We have begun commissioning of the crushing circuit and wet commissioning of the Sigma Mill and are on track to complete construction on schedule and on budget, with commercial production expected in early 2019."

"The completion of the feasibility study for the Kışladağ Mill and the subsequent Board decision to continue to advance the project were key milestones for Eldorado this quarter.  I am extremely proud of the work our team has undertaken to optimize the future of Kışladağ, demonstrating our disciplined approach of allocating capital, as we transition away from heap leaching to deliver quality growth through the advancement of the mill project. Our focus going forward will be on delivering this project on time and on budget, as we are doing at Lamaque."

Review of Quarterly Financial Results

Gold sales of 64,589 ounces during the quarter were in line with last year's third quarter as lower sales from Kışladağ were partially offset by sales at Olympias in 2018. Total metal sales revenues were $81.1 million in the third quarter of 2018 compared to $95.4 million in the third quarter of 2017, as a result of marginally lower sales volumes together with a lower average realized gold price of $1,177 per ounce compared to $1,290 per ounce for the third quarter of 2017.

Lower gold revenues for the quarter together with higher production costs and depreciation, depletion and amortization ("DDA") expense resulted in earnings from mine operations decreasing year over year. Production costs in the third quarter of 2018 were $10.2 million higher year over year. This was driven primarily by $21.1 million in non-cash charges related to the leach pad inventory draw-down at Kışladağ due to lower ounces, together with Olympias starting production at the beginning of 2018 and partially offset by lower production costs at both Efemcukuru and Stratoni.

Kışladağ leach pad inventory was adjusted upwards by approximately 76,000 ounces of gold during the quarter to reflect an increase in recoverable ounces on the pad. The costs associated with the inventory will now be spread across the remaining heap leach expected ounces.  Future quarters are expected to be impacted by non-cash charges as the Kışladağ leach pad inventory draw-down continues. DDA costs in the quarter were marginally higher year over year due to the start-up of Olympias as well as an increase at Kışladağ resulting from leach pad draw-down.

With the completion of the mill feasibility study at Kışladağ and Board approval to advance the project, a review of the useful lives of the Kışladağ heap leach assets resulted in an impairment charge of $117.6 million ($94.1 million net of deferred income tax recovery) being recognized during the quarter. As a result, net loss attributable to shareholders of the Company for this quarter was $128.0 million, or ($0.16) per share, compared to a net loss of $4.2 million, or ($0.01) per share in the third quarter of 2017. Adjusted net loss for the quarter was $21.9 million, or ($0.03) per share, compared to adjusted net earnings of $1.3 million, or $0.00 per share for the third quarter of 2017 (see the MD&A dated September 30, 2018 for a reconciliation of net earnings (loss) to adjusted net earnings (loss)).

General and administrative expenses decreased $1.9 million year over year due to one time costs in 2017 associated with the acquisition of Integra. Mine standby costs of $4.5 million were recorded in the third quarter of 2018 related to Kışladağ, Vila Nova, Perama Hill and Skouries (Q3 2017: $1.3 million).

In the third quarter, further weakening of the Turkish and Brazilian currencies in relation to the U.S. dollar had a negative impact on deferred income tax expenses, which were partially offset by the deferred income tax recovery related to the impairment of assets in Turkey. Total deferred income tax recovery for the quarter was $11.6 million. Quarterly income tax expense/recovery will continue to be sensitive to currency volatility in Turkey and Brazil.

Review of Quarterly Operational Results

Gold production of 84,807 ounces was up 21% year on year (Q3 2017: 70,053) due to commercial production at Olympias and pre-commercial production from Lamaque. Production at Efemcukuru remained in line with the comparative quarter in 2017.  

Production at Kışladağ for the quarter was 34,070 ounces, marginally lower than the third quarter of 2017 (35,902 ounces), with no additional ore being placed on the pad since April 2018. The better than forecasted production at Kışladağ is largely due to increased cyanide concentrations boosting leach kinetics and targeted irrigation of leach pad as a result of ongoing sonic drilling, as well as side slope leaching.

After a strong first half of 2018, the Olympias plant encountered lead recovery challenges during the quarter. This was primarily due to permit delays impacting the construction and commissioning of the paste plant, which led to a backlog of voids that required filling in the West zone, slowing production from this area of the mine. Production was increased in the East zone, but material from this area has proven to be challenging in terms of lead circuit performance. These challenges include lower lead recovery and a higher concentration of deleterious materials in the lead concentrate, which necessitated a change in the sales process. At quarter end, there was a built up stockpile of lead concentrate at the port and on vessels. In addition to these issues, lower zinc and lead prices compared to previous quarters led to lower by-product revenues and higher cash operating and AISC costs.

Gold recovery and gold grades in concentrate at Olympias were broadly in line with expectations, with gold feed grades dropping slightly below expectations during the quarter, but still ahead of expectations year to date. However, with the issues in the lead production, some of the lead was reporting to the gold concentrate, causing issues in the sale of that concentrate. At quarter end, Olympias had approximately 9,500 ounces of payable gold unsold in inventory. 

At quarter end, backfilling of voids was improving and the ratio of West to East zone ore had been restored. We are also temporarily slowing down plant throughput to allow for an ore stockpile to be created on surface to help with blending. Metallurgical consultants  have also been engaged to assist with performance of the plant when treating the East zone. The Company is also exploring blending lead concentrates from Olympias with Stratoni to decrease the concentration of deleterious materials.

Permitting and Development Updates

Kışladağ Mill

Following the completion of the Kışladağ Mill Project feasibility study the Board approved the advancement of the project on October 25th. The project is expected to begin commissioning activities in late 2020, with production expected in the first half of 2021.

Highlights of the feasibility study are shown below, compared to the NI 43-101 Pre-Feasibility Study filed in March 2018, which remains the Company's current technical report for the purposes of NI 43-101.The results of the feasibility study in terms of capital and operating costs are close to those outlined in the Pre-Feasibility Report. Mine plan, reserves, operational strategy, geology, metallurgy and other operating parameters all remained materially unchanged from the Pre-Feasibility Report.

Other work during the quarter included the selection of vendors for long-lead items with the award of an early engineering contract to the selected tailings filter vendor. It is expected that contracts for other long-lead items such as the mills will be finalized, and awarded for purchase, before year-end.

Capital costs increased compared to the Pre-Feasibility Report primarily due to increased costs in the tailings management facility and in tailings filtration. Operating costs increased slightly compared to the Pre-Feasibility Report mainly due to increased cost of electric power.

Lamaque

During the quarter, Lamaque received the Certificate of Authorization permit for operation of the Sigma Mill.  Underground development continues to ramp up and remains slightly ahead of plan, with over 2,100 meters completed at Triangle during the quarter.

Key activities at the Sigma mill focused on the refurbishment and replacement of the electrical and piping works, installation of the refurbished mill motors, equipment installation and construction of the reagent buildings. A key milestone was achieved with the commencement of the pre-commissioning of the crushing circuit and wet commissioning of the main plant. It is expected that the full commissioning will commence in late November. 

Favorable weather allowed for the advancement of Phase 1 of the Tailings Management Facility ("TMF") ahead of schedule. Phase 1 will provide sufficient storage for the first year of operation. The Certificate of Authorization for operations of the tailing facility was also received during the quarter which permits the deposition of tailings in the TMF.

Lamaque remains on track to reach commercial production in early 2019.

Greece

The Company continues to attempt to engage the Greek government in constructive dialogue relating to its investments in Greece, including the Skouries project. During the quarter, the Company filed an application for payment with the Greek government requesting payment of approximately €750 million for damages suffered by the Company arising from delays in the issuance of permits for the Skouries project. The Company continues to evaluate its legal options in this regard.  

For further information on the Company's development and permitting updates for the third quarter of 2018, please see the Company's Management's Discussion and Analysis  filed on SEDAR at www.sedar.com under the Company's profile.

Guidance

2018 Revised Outlook   

Our operations continue to perform well, and full year production guidance has been further increased to 345,000-350,000 ounces of gold. Cash operating costs are forecasted at $600-650 per ounce sold. This is an increase from previous guidance of 330,000-340,000 ounces of gold, and initial guidance of 290,000 - 330,000 ounces of gold, and cash operating costs of $580-630 per ounce sold, primarily due to expected higher production at Kışladağ, partially offset by a guidance reduction at Olympias.  Details of the Kışladağ guidance updates are outlined below:

1 Cash operating cost guidance has increased for Kışladağ due to increased cyanide usage estimates.

 

2018 guidance for Olympias has been revised to 45,000-50,000 ounces of gold at a cash operating cost of $600-700 per ounce sold, down from original guidance of 55,000-65,000 ounces at a cash operating cost of $550-650 per ounce sold.

In light of this increased consolidated guidance, together with higher than expected inventory draw-down during the quarter, the Company has also increased Kışladağ's estimated recoverable leach pad inventory by approximately 76,000 ounces of gold. This change in estimate for the heap leach inventory will be accounted for prospectively as a new accounting estimate in accordance with IAS 8 commencing October 1, 2018. The costs associated with this inventory are allocated to each ounce produced and are highlighted in the above table as non-cash costs.

Three Year Corporate Outlook  

The Company's business plan is to grow annual production to 600,000 ounces of gold by 2021. Over the next two years, the Company expects to maintain average production of 300,000-325,000 ounces of gold per year, with costs similar to 2018. Costs are expected to decrease by approximately $100-150 per ounce sold once the Kışladağ mill comes online. Development capital for 2019-2021 is expected to total approximately $550 million (in accordance with the recently announced Kışladağ feasibility study and the March 2018 Pre-Feasibility Report for Lamaque).  The Company will continue to provide detailed guidance at the start of each year.
