Yamana Gold Upgraded Its Production Guidance

Yamana Gold’s (AUY) production for the third quarter was 246,788 ounces, which is an improvement of 11% YoY (year-over-year) and 10% sequentially. The production was higher than management’s expectations for the quarter. The Cerro Moro mine reached commercial production towards the end of the second quarter. Due to Yamana Gold’s higher-than-expected production for the first nine months of the year and the favorable ramp-up of the Cerro Moro mine, the company increased the gold and copper production guidance for 2018.
