Timberline reported a consolidated net loss of $508 thousand for the quarter ended December 31, 2013, including exploration expenditures of $164 thousand. The Company's exploration expenditures during the quarter were primarily related to ongoing metallurgical, economic, and environmental baseline data collection and studies at the Lookout Mountain Project on the Company's South Eureka Property in Nevada. Results are expected to support future permit applications, and preliminary economic analysis for low-cost, heap-leach processing. Limited expenditures were related to initial field geologic investigation of the Iron Butte Gold Project in Nevada.
Timberline's President and CEO, Paul Dircksen, said, "Although limited in scope by the current difficult market environment, we are pleased to report continued progress in advancing the Lookout Mountain Project. The data generated at Lookout Mountain will be important in development of a Preliminary Economic Assessment which is planned when market conditions make it possible."
