Goldcorp’s Costs Trended Higher in Q3—Could They Drop in Q4?

Goldcorp (GG) achieved AISC (all-in sustaining costs) of $999.00 per ounce in the third quarter, which was 20.8% higher YoY (year-over-year) and 17.5% higher sequentially. Its AISC was higher than expected due to the lower production of gold, as discussed previously in this series, as well as lower metals production including reduced by-products from the low-grade stockpile at Peñasquito. Along with lowering its production guidance, Goldcorp increased its cost guidance.
