Eldorado Gold Reports Q3 2019 Financial and Operational Results

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Oct. 31, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Eldorado Gold Corporation (“Eldorado” or “the Company”) today reports the Company’s financial and operational results for the third quarter of 2019.

  • Extension of mine life at Kisladag supported by recent test results: Waste stripping to support a mine life extension at Kisladag is underway. Recent test results confirm recoveries from leaching deeper material over 250 day cycles support an extension of mine life beyond the Company's current three year guidance. Testwork is still ongoing and the Company expects to update long term guidance at Kisladag based on the results of this testwork, which are expected to be available in Q1 2020.

  • Permits for Skouries and Olympias received: Permits allow for, among other things, installation of electrical and mechanical equipment at Skouries and Olympias. Subsequent to the quarter the Company also received approval for the Skouries building permit, which will allow the Company to begin installation of the Skouries mill building, and consent from the Central Archaeological Council to relocate an ancient mining furnace from the Skouries open pit area, subject to Ministerial approval.

  • Successful ramp up at Lamaque: Lamaque achieved commercial production in April 2019 and has had two successful operating quarters. In September 2019, the Company announced that it is undertaking a Preliminary Economic Assessment (“PEA”) to increase average annual production from approximately 130,000 ounces of gold to approximately 170,000 ounces of gold.

  • Increased Q3 gold production and reiterating 2019 annual guidance: Gold production for the quarter totalled 101,596 ounces with 276,376 ounces produced year-to-date. Quarterly production included 32,037 ounces from Lamaque in its second quarter of commercial operations and was partially offset by a decrease in production at Olympias as a result of reduced tonnage fed to the processing plant.

  • Steady EBITDA: Higher sales volumes in the quarter resulted in earnings before interest, taxes and depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA") of $73.2 million. Adjusted EBITDA of $75.9 million excludes the impact of non-cash share-based compensation expense.

  • Liquidity strengthened: The Company finished the quarter with approximately $322 million of liquidity including $134.9 million in cash, cash equivalents and term deposits and approximately $187 million available under its $250 million revolving credit facility, with $63 million of capacity on the revolving credit facility allocated to secure certain reclamation obligations in connection with its operations.

  • Positive net earnings per share: Net earnings to shareholders in the quarter totalled $4.2 million, or $0.03 per share. Adjusted net earnings were $7.5 million, or $0.05 per share, after adjusting for non-cash deferred tax expense relating to foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations.

Eldorado's President and CEO, George Burns, stated: "We achieved several key milestones in the third quarter, including an excellent quarter at Lamaque, positive net earnings and steady EBITDA. At Kisladag positive test results have given us the confidence to begin waste stripping, which should extend the life of that asset. I’m very pleased with progress we are making in Greece. We have received installation permits for Skouries and Olympias as well as consent to move some historic mining workings from our Skouries site. We will continue to work with the government towards a mutually acceptable path forward to build safe, modern, world-class operations in Greece, including approval to implement dry stack tailings at Skouries. I look forward to working with the team on the exciting path we have in front of us as we move into 2020."

(1) Excludes sales of inventory mined at Lamaque and Olympias (Q1 2018) during the pre-commercial production period.
(2) Includes pre-commercial production at Lamaque and Olympias (Q1 2018).
(3) By-product revenues are off-set against cash operating costs.
(4) Attributable to shareholders of the Company.
(5) These measures are non-IFRS measures. See the September 30, 2019 MD&A for explanations and discussion of these non-IFRS measures.
(6) 2018 amounts have been adjusted to reflect reclassifications in cash flow from operating activities in the current periods.

Gold sales of 99,241 ounces increased from 64,589 ounces in the third quarter of 2018 primarily due to the sale of 31,122 ounces from Lamaque in its second quarter of commercial operations.

Total revenues increased to $172.3 million from $81.1 million in the third quarter of 2018 as a result of higher sales volumes and a higher average realized gold price of $1,513 per ounce in the third quarter of 2019 compared to $1,177 per ounce in the third quarter of 2018.

Cash operating costs per ounce sold decreased to $560 from $754 in the third quarter of 2018, primarily due to the ramp-up of mining, crushing and placement of ore on the Kisladag heap leach pad beginning in April 2019, and the partial allocation of processing costs to gold inventory in the heap leach pad. This was partially offset by higher cash operating costs per ounce sold at Olympias as a result of lower production levels and at Efemcukuru as a result of increased transportation costs.

Net earnings attributable to shareholders of $4.2 million ($0.03 per share) improved from a net loss attributable to shareholders in the third quarter of 2018 of $128.0 million ($0.81 loss per share). The improvement was primarily a result of higher sales volumes in the third quarter and an impairment charge in the third quarter of 2018 of $117.6 million ($94.1 million net of deferred income tax recovery) relating to the Kisladag heap leach pad.

Higher sales volumes in the quarter resulted in EBITDA of $73.2 million. Adjusted EBITDA of $75.9 million excludes the impact of share based payments.

Adjusted net earnings were $7.5 million ($0.05 per share) in the quarter, compared to adjusted net loss of $21.9 million ($0.14 loss per share) in the third quarter of 2018. Adjusted net earnings in the third quarter of 2019 removes, among other things, $3.4 million of deferred tax expense relating to foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations. Adjusted net loss in the third quarter of 2018 primarily removes the $117.6 million impairment charge ($94.1 million net of deferred income tax recovery) relating to the Kisladag heap leach operations.

(2) Excludes sales of inventory produced at Lamaque and Olympias (Q1 2018) during the pre-commercial production period. In the nine months ended September 30, 2019, 27,627 ounces were sold from inventory produced during the pre-commercial production period.
(3) Kisladag resumed mining, crushing and placing ore on the heap leach pad on April 1, 2019. This activity had been suspended since April 2018.
(4) These measures are non-IFRS measures. See the September 30, 2019 MD&A for explanations and discussion of these non-IFRS measures.

Gold production of 101,596 ounces increased from 84,783 ounces in the third quarter of 2018 primarily due to 32,037 ounces produced at Lamaque in its second quarter of commercial operations.
