TORONTO, Nov. 09, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Wesdome Gold Mines Ltd. (TSX: WDO) (“Wesdome” or the “Company”) today announces its third quarter financial results. All figures are stated in Canadian dollars unless otherwise noted.

Duncan Middlemiss, President and CEO commented, “During Q3, we are pleased to have made significant advancements on the build out at Kiena, such as completing the hoist refurbishment project during the July shut down. As well, the remaining key electrical components for the paste plant were delivered and installed, and have been successfully powered. Post quarter end, construction is being finalized, and pre-commissioning activities have started. We expect the plant to be fully operational in Q4. Once this is achieved, the Company can declare commercial production at the Kiena mine.

At Eagle, initial mining of the Falcon zone in the volcanic host rock resulted in one stope returning lower grades than forecast. However, ongoing development and drilling throughout the year has continued to better define the higher-grade shoots within the Falcon Zone and improved our confidence in forecasting production going forward. Additionally, recent surface and underground drilling, from the 355 m-level exploration drift, has extended the up-plunge extent of the Falcon 7 zone to surface. As the mill was on shut down in July for planned mill thickener refurbishment work, production was relatively in line with Q2 2022 with higher production planned for Q4.

Year to date, previously released combined production of 75,734 ounces positions the Company is currently tracking to produce near the low end of its 120,000 – 140,000 ounce revised guidance range and the higher end of our cost guidance range, which relies on significant production late in the fourth quarter. Costs have been higher than previously guided at the start of the year due to a number of factors, primarily lower grade at Eagle River as a result of grade underperformance in the Falcon Zone, supply chain delays resulting in less ounces produced than budgeted at Kiena, and inflationary pressures. The ground conditions in Kiena Deep, specific to the schist and komatiite in the footwall of the A Zone remain challenging, and the equipment delays encountered earlier in the year (now received with the exception of some bolting equipment), have resulted in the development and mining rates being slower to ramp up than originally anticipated. Ramp up activities at Kiena will continue during 2023 as the development deficit incurred is being addressed. With learnings from mining the new Falcon Zone at Eagle in 2022, and as we integrate Kiena, 2023 is expected to be a consolidation year with financial improvement expected as growth capital at Kiena tapers off, and production increases throughout the year.”

Production and Exploration Highlights

Achievements

Eagle River Complex

  • Q3 2022 Eagle River underground ore production decreased by 26% from Q3 2021 to 17,405 ounces due to lower head grade and throughput. In July, the mill performed a planned shutdown to refurbish its thickener, resulting in 15 days of downtime. Head grade at Eagle River in Q3 2022 averaged 10.7 g/t, which is within the revised 2022 grade guidance of 10.5 -11.7 g/t Au. Production was negatively impacted as two underground crews were sent off-site in September due to members testing positive for Covid.

  • Q3 2022 cash cost of $1,473 (US$1,128) per ounce of gold sold1 increased by 49% or $486 per ounce from Q3 2021 due to a 30% decrease in ounces sold, and a 4% increase in overall aggregate site operating costs resulting from higher costs incurred on operating development, improvements made to strengthen the technical and mine management team at site, general maintenance improvements, and inflationary pressures, driven by higher labour costs and an increase in commodity inputs, including higher fuel and energy costs.

  • Q3 2022 AISC of $2,259 (US$1,730) per ounce of gold sold1 increased by 56% or $808 per ounce from Q3 2021 due to a 30% decrease in ounces sold, a 32% increase in capital spending primarily resulting from the stage 5 tailings dam lift, and a 4% increase in overall aggregate site operating costs resulting from higher costs incurred on operating development, improvements made to strengthen the technical and mine management team at site, general maintenance improvements, and inflationary pressures, driven by higher labour costs and an increase in commodity inputs, including higher fuel and energy costs.

  • Generated a cash margin in Q3 2022 of $14.6 million compared to $34.2 million in Q3 2021 due to the 30% decrease in ounces sold, and the 4% increase in overall aggregate site operating costs.

  • The new 355 m level development is now complete along the western extent of the mine infrastructure. The development extends 400 m west of the mine into the volcanic rocks that host the Falcon 7 zone. This development provides drill platforms to test for gold mineralization near the Falcon 7 zone further along strike, and for parallel zones. In the future it will provide access for mining and will improve operational planning, as it is situated away from the main mining area at depth.

  • Most recently, surface, and underground drilling from the newly established 355 m level exploration drift, has defined the up-plunge extent of the Falcon 7 zone. Highlights of the recent drilling include 11.1 g/t Au over 3.0 m core length and 26.5 g/t Au over 2.0 m core length.

  • In addition, a number of drill holes have intersected mineralization in subparallel zones in the hanging wall of the Falcon 7 zone, including a recent hole that returned 40.3 g/t Au over 1.5 m. One hole, further to the west along strike from the Falcon 7 zone, near the historic 9 zone, returned 19.4 g/t au over 0.7 m.

 

  • Exploration drilling completed much further to the east, within the central portion of the mine diorite defined a new lens of gold mineralization. This lens is interpreted to be east of and along strike from the 7 Zone structure, which is host to the Falcon 7 zone further to the west in the volcanic rocks and the 7 zone currently being mined within the mine diorite. Recent highlights include 27 g/t Au over 4.6 m and 40.4 g/t Au over 3.0 m core length. This new lens will now be drilled and accessed from adjacent underground infrastructure along the previous mined 8 zone approximately 100 m to the south.

  • Additionally, initial surface drilling within the volcanic rocks, 150 metres east and down dip of the previously mined 2 Zone intersected altered volcanic rocks with quartz veining and VG. One hole returned 233.0 g/t Au over 0.4 metres.

Kiena

  • Generated $2.4 million in cash margin despite the high cash costs of $1,963 (US$1,504) per ounce of gold sold1 due to low pre-commercial production levels. Kiena performed a planned hoist refurbishment shutdown in July, which resulted in 24 days of downtime.

  • Now that the paste fill plant components have all been received, construction is being finalized and pre-commissioning activities have begun. Commissioning of the paste fill plant is still expected in Q4 2022. Pending completion of the paste plant in Q4, the Company will declare commercial production, which signifies that the required operational infrastructure is in place.

  • The ground conditions in Kiena Deep specific to the schist and komatiite in the footwall of the A Zone remain challenging and the global supply chain disruption continues to delay delivery of critical bolting equipment (originally planned to be delivered in March 2022), which has resulted in the development and mining rates being slower to ramp up than originally anticipated. Ramp-up activities at Kiena will continue during 2023 as the development deficit incurred is being addressed.

  • The recent discovery of the South Limb and Footwall zones show the underexplored exploration potential of the Kiena Deep Zone, and therefore, the potential to increase the number of ounces per vertical metre and to provide additional working faces during mining. The discovery of these zones highlights the potential to add ounces in additional zones in this area within the basalt and is the focus of the current drilling. We expect to report these results in the near future.

  • Underground drills are active on 33 level to test historic zones and encouraging drill results further to the southeast along strike from the Kiena mine.

  • From surface, drilling has focused on the Presqu’île Zone located 2 kilometres west of the Kiena Mine. Highlights include 24.3 g/t over 3.3 m core length and 30.0 g/t Au over 9.4 m core length. Given the significant upside that the Presqu’île zone could represent for Kiena, the Company is currently evaluating options to fast-track an exploration ramp from surface. It could also easily be connected to Kiena’s existing underground ramp network, providing access to surface for the existing operation.

  • To the east of the mine, surface drilling has been focused near the recent discoveries at the Shawkey and Bourgo zones and most recently at the historic Dubuisson zone. Recent drilling has intersected gold mineralization in albite altered diorites with tourmaline and gold, which is interpreted to be a different style and later stage of mineralization compared to Kiena Deep. We continue to focus our drilling in this area and will report results in the near term for this drilling. Given that these zones are relatively close to the existing 33 level development, these areas represent a potential additional source of ore for the Kiena mill.

  1. Q3 2021 has been restated to correct an error in the valuation of the share consideration receivable related to the sale of the Moss Lake Project which closed on May 31, 2021.  The proceeds have been restated to $44.7 million from $49.5 million, which has decreased the gain on sale of the Moss Lake properties to $30.2 million (net of tax of $4.1 million) from $34.6 million (net of tax of $4.5 million).  The Q3 2021 net income has decreased by $0.9 million resulting from the mark-to-market of the share consideration receivable.  Basic earnings per share for Q3 2021 changed from $0.11 to $0.10 per share and basic earnings per share for Q3 YTD 2021 changed from $0.79 to $0.76 per share.
