Austral Gold: Q3 2019 Activity Report

Elemental Royalties Limited, (“Elemental”), a private company expanding a diversified portfolio of mineral royalties, is pleased to comment on the recent Q3 2019 activity report announced by Austral Gold Limited (“Austral”). Austral is the operator of the Amancaya gold mine located in Chile, on which Elemental holds a 2.25% NSR royalty.

Elemental is pleased to note another solid quarter from Austral, where during Q3 the Guanaco / Amancaya mine complex continued its strong performance with 17,879 gold equivalent ounces produced.

  • The Guanaco and Amancaya Mine complex had a solid operational performance during Q3 2019. Quarterly production reached 17,879 gold equivalent ounces (16,273 gold ounces and 136,867 silver ounces) – a 16% increase from the September 2018 quarter and a 2% decrease from the June 2019 quarter.
  • Operational margins and cash generation remained strong with quarterly Operating Cash Cost (C1) and all-in-sustaining cost (AISC) at US$617 and US$810 respectively per gold equivalent ounce. C1 and AISC decreased by 14% and 15% respectively from the June 2019 quarter. The average selling price for the September 2019 quarter was US$1,471/oz reflecting the upward trend of the price of gold.

Elemental is pleased to note that the higher production values result mainly from higher throughput at Amancaya as a result of better mine equipment availability, coupled with higher gold grades and increased recoveries. The Company also notes that production guidance for the Guanaco / Amancaya complex remains at 70-75,000 gold equivalent ounces with operating cash costs and AISC estimated at US$700-800/Oz and US$950-1000/Oz respectively.
