Not only will AG report 4th q production numbers but they've indicated 2014 planning/guidance early in 2014.
Whether this update includes production and 2014 guidance, I expect AG will update both in January.
The purchase could have been a hedge fund closing a short position on the drop in gold this AM. Who knows. However, the purchase at 10 am, in conjunction with a firm price for the rest of the day, plus double average daily volume is bullish.
