You can find (calculate) cost per ounce for this and any other gold-producing company by using quarterly report (income statement and production output). More specifically, you take revenue number, subtract net income, add depreciation (if you are looking for “cash” cost) and divide result by number of ounces produced in the same quarter. Some purists demand that capex should be also used (increasing cost number); one may also disregard both capex and depreciation.
If your message meant break-even gold price for this company then it is about $1300-1350. Please note that this number is high (higher than usually reported) for many (or even any) gold producing company.
Seeking Alpha article ... not correct! Here are the numbers right out of the 4th QTR. report:
• Attributable gold production was 214,000 ounces in the fourth quarter 2012 compared to 253,000 ounces in the same period 2011. The decline was mainly due to lower grades at Essakane and the stockpiling of ore at Mouska for processing in 2013.
• Cash costs2 for the fourth quarter 2012 were $731 an ounce, compared to $643 an ounce in the same prior year period. Cash costs for IAMGOLD operated mines were $665 an ounce in the fourth quarter 2012 compared to $562 an ounce in the same quarter 2011.
• The gold margin2 in the fourth quarter 2012 was $973 per ounce, down marginally from the same period in 2011 as higher cash costs were partially offset by higher gold prices.
