HALIFAX, NS, May 12, 2021 /CNW/ - GoGold Resources Inc. (TSX: GGD) (OTCQX: GLGDF) ("GoGold", "the Company") is pleased to announce the release of financial results for the quarter ending March 31, 2021 with revenue of $13.2 million (all amounts are in U.S. dollars) from the sale of 541,608 silver equivalent ounces which provided cash flow from operations of $3.3 million.

"Parral had another great quarter, generating $6.3 million in free cash flow and $13.0 million for the first six months of the fiscal year, which is being reinvested into Los Ricos, which we believe will generate great value for our shareholders," Brad Langille, President and CEO stated. "We have successfully renegotiated the Parral off-take agreement which we believe will increase quarterly cash flows by approximately $300,000 on a go-forward basis."

Financial Highlights for the quarter ending March 31, 2021:

  • Free cash flow from Parral of $6.3 million

  • Company cash flow from operations before working capital of $4.9 million, $3.3 million after working capital

  • Net income of $2.7 million ($0.01 per share)

  • Revenue of $13.2 million on the sale of 541,608 silver equivalent ounces at a realized price per ounce of $24.43

  • Cash of $54.7 million USD, prior to financing

  • Production of 551,207 silver equivalent ounces, consisting of 302,933 silver ounces, 3,208 gold ounces, and 86 copper tonnes

On May 7, 2021, the Company closed the previously announced bought deal financing for gross proceeds of $28.75 million CAD to strengthen the balance sheet and continue to de-risk the future development of the mine at Los Ricos South.

On April 29, 2021, the Company amended and restated their off-take agreement where the Company was previously selling all of the production from Parral. Due to the high volatility of gold and silver prices, the agreement has cost the Company 3.6% of revenue over the life of the project thus far. The amended agreement will cost 1.7% of revenue going forward, for an estimated net savings of 1.9%.

CAUTIONARY STATEMENT:
The securities described herein have not been, and will not be, registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "U.S. Securities Act"), or any state securities laws, and may not be offered or sold within the United States or to, or for the benefit of, U.S. persons (as defined in Regulation S under the U.S. Securities Act) except in compliance with the registration requirements of the U.S. Securities Act and applicable state securities laws or pursuant to exemptions therefrom. This release does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy of any of GoGold's securities in the United States.

This news release may contain "forward-looking information" as defined in applicable Canadian securities legislation. All statements other than statements of historical fact, included in this release, including, without limitation, statements regarding the Parral tailings project, the Los Ricos project, future operating margins, future production and processing, and future plans and objectives of GoGold, constitute forward looking information that involve various risks and uncertainties. Forward-looking information is based on a number of factors and assumptions which have been used to develop such information but which may prove to be incorrect, including, but not limited to, assumptions in connection with the continuance of GoGold and its subsidiaries as a going concern, general economic and market conditions, mineral prices, the accuracy of mineral resource estimates, and the performance of the Parral project There can be no assurance that such information will prove to be accurate and actual results and future events could differ materially from those anticipated in such forward-looking information.

Important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from GoGold's expectations include exploration and development risks associated with the GoGold's projects, the failure to establish estimated mineral resources or mineral reserves, volatility of commodity prices, variations of recovery rates, the effects of the global COVID-19 pandemic, and global economic conditions. For additional information with respect to risk factors applicable to GoGold, reference should be made to GoGold's continuous disclosure materials filed from time to time with securities regulators, including, but not limited to, GoGold's Annual Information Form. The forward-looking information contained in this release is made as of the date of this release.

Cautionary non-GAAP Measures and Additional GAAP Measures
Note that for purposes of this section, GAAP refers to IFRS. The Company believes that investors use certain non-GAAP and additional GAAP measures as indicators to assess mining companies. They are intended to provide additional information and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance prepared with GAAP. Non-GAAP and additional GAAP measures do not have a standardized meaning prescribed under IFRS and therefore may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies.

Additional GAAP measures that are presented on the face of the Company's consolidated statements of comprehensive income include "Operating income (loss)". These measures are intended to provide an indication of the Company's mine and operating performance. "Cash flow from operating activities before changes in non-cash working capital" is a non-GAAP performance measure that could provide an indication of the Company's ability to generate cash flows from operations, and is calculated by adding back the change in non-cash working capital to "Net cash used in operating activities" as presented on the Company's consolidated statements of cash flows. Per ounce measures are calculated by dividing the relevant mining and processing costs and total costs by the tonnes of ore processed in the period. "Cash costs per ounce" and "all-in sustaining costs per ounce" as used in this analysis are non-GAAP terms typically used by mining companies to assess the level of gross margin available to the Company by subtracting these costs from the unit price realized during the period. These non-GAAP terms are also used to assess the ability of a mining company to generate cash flow from operations. There may be some variation in the method of computation of these metrics as determined by the Company compared with other mining companies. In this context, "cash costs per ounce" reflects the cash operating costs allocated from in-process and dore inventory associated with ounces of silver and gold sold in the period. "Cash costs per ounce" may vary from one period to another due to operating efficiencies, grade of material processed and silver/gold recovery rates in the period. "All-in sustaining costs per ounce" include total cash costs, exploration, corporate and administrative, share based compensation and sustaining capital costs. For a reconciliation of non-GAAP and GAAP measures, please refer to the Management Discussion and Analysis dated May 11, 2021, for the quarter ended March 31, 2021, as presented on SEDAR.
