Inmet Announces Third Quarter Net Income From Continuing Operations of $101 Million Compared to $68 Million in the Third Quarter of 2010

Thursday, October 27, 2011

Inmet Announces Third Quarter Net Income From Continuing Operations of $101 Million Compared to $68 Million in the Third Quarter of 201020:01 EDT Thursday, October 27, 2011TORONTO, CANADA--(Marketwire - Oct. 27, 2011) -All amounts in Canadian dollars unless indicated otherwiseInmet (TSX:IMN) announces third quarter net income from continuing operations of $101 million compared to $68 million in the third quarter of 2010.Third quarter highlightsEarnings from operations up from last year Earnings from operations were $116 million this quarter compared to $102 million in the same quarter of last year. This is the result of our continuing ramp up at Las Cruces and a significant increase in pyrite sales volumes at Pyhäsalmi, offset somewhat by higher operating costs, and lower realized copper prices at Çayeli this quarter. A high proportion of Çayeli's sales this quarter were not yet finalized so they were valued using September 30 forward prices.Foreign exchange gains increase net incomeWe recognized foreign exchange gains of $30 million in the quarter, mainly on the cash, and long-term bonds we hold in US dollars.Higher operating cash flows Our cash flow provided by operating activities was $121 million this quarter. This represents an increase of $41 million over the third quarter of 2010, mainly because our net working capital was lower and because of the higher production from Las Cruces. Reduced working capital reflects lower accounts receivable at Çayeli and Pyhäsalmi related to the timing of collections from customers and a decrease in metal prices at the end of this quarter.Las Cruces production increased Las Cruces produced 11,400 tonnes of cathode copper in the third quarter, including a record 4,500 tonnes in August. Reactor performance and reliability improved this quarter, and by the end of September, all eight reactors had operated reliably for 30 consecutive days. We expect cathode copper production of approximately 4,700 tonnes for October, and anticipate reaching production design capacity by the end of the year. Update on Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA) approvalWe continue to await ESIA approval for the Cobre Panama project. The government's review and assessment process has been methodical and thorough. Our final step in the process this quarter was to submit our responses to the second round of questions posed by the Panamanian environmental authority and other consulting ministries and the public file indicates that the Panamanian government has completed its technical review.Key financial datathree months ended September 30nine months ended September 30(thousands, except per share amounts)20112010Change20112010changeFINANCIAL HIGHLIGHTSSalesGross sales$261,757$225,960+16%$737,986$548,287+35%Net incomeNet income from continuing operations$101,205$67,986+49%$216,660$168,851+28%Net income from continuing operations per share$1.46$1.04+40%$3.31$3.00+10%Net income from discontinued operations-$33,569-100%$83,439$76,762+9%Net income from discontinued operations per share-$0.60-100%$1.27$1.37-7%Net income attributable to Inmet shareholders$101,205$91,678+10%$300,099$244,944+23%Net income per share$1.46$1.64-11%$4.58$4.37+5%Cash flowCash flow provided by operating activities$120,650$79,585+52%$331,757$164,403+102%Cash flow provided by operating activities per share (1)$1.74$1.42+23%$5.07$2.93+73%Capital spending (2)$57,034$44,327+29%$149,565$68,757+118%OPERATING HIGHLIGHTSProduction(3)Copper (tonnes)21,70017,100+27%58,60047,900+22%Zinc (tonnes)23,00020,800+11%62,50060,100+4%Gold (ounces)----37,900-100%Pyrite (tonnes)210,10062,000+239%594,300397,200+50%Copper cash cost (US $ per pound)(4)$0.69$0.77-10%$0.88$0.59+49%as at September 30as at December 31FINANCIAL CONDITION20112010Current ratio7.6 to 13.4 to 1Gross debt to total equity1%1%Net working capital balance (millions)$1,239$626Liquidity balance including cash and long-term bonds (millions)$1,738$699Gross debt (millions)$18$17Shareholders' equity (millions)$3,479$2,555(1)Cash flow provided by operating activities divided by average shares outstanding for the period.

Prices on the London Metals Exchange (LME) fell from US $4.27 per pound on July 1 to US $3.23 per pound on September 30. LME copper prices averaged US $4.07 per pound this quarter – a 24 percent increase over the third quarter of 2010. Our realized copper price of US $3.54 per pound this quarter is significantly lower than the LME average price, mainly because of Çayeli. A high proportion of Çayeli's sales this quarter were not yet finalized so they were valued using September 30 forward prices. ZincZinc prices on the LME went down 19 percent this quarter, from US $1.06 per pound at the start of the quarter to $0.86 per pound on September 30. Zinc prices averaged US $1.01 per pound this quarter, slightly lower than last quarter's average price of US $1.02 per pound and an 11 percent increase over the third quarter of 2010. PyritePrices for sulphur remained steady this quarter and we expect to realize similar prices over the rest of the year.Exchange ratesExchange rates affect our revenue and earnings.

Compared to the same quarter last year, the value of the Canadian dollar went up 6 percent relative to the US dollar, and down 3 percent relative to the euro. Our earnings are affected by changes in foreign currency exchange rates when we:translate the results of our operations from their functional currency (US dollars or euros) to Canadian dollars revalue US dollars and euros that we hold in cash and long-term bonds at Corporate. Treatment charges down for zincTreatment charges are one component of smelter processing charges. We also pay smelters for content losses and price participation. The table below shows the average charges we realized this quarter and year to date. Treatment charges for copper concentrates this year were higher than in 2010 based on agreements we have signed with customers. Additionally, treatment charges for copper concentrates this quarter were higher because of spot market shipments we made. Spot smelter processing charges were higher because the earthquake in Japan in March caused temporary stoppages in copper smelter production, lowering short-term demand for copper concentrates. Treatment charges for zinc concentrates are lower than last year, reflecting a tightening zinc concentrate market. three months ended September 30nine months ended September 30(US$)20112010(1)change20112010(1)changeTreatment chargesCopper (per dry metric tonne of concentrate)US $67US $53+26%US $58US $52+12%Zinc (per dry metric tonne of concentrate)US $225US $244-8%US $225US $246-9%Price participationCopper (per pound)US $0.02US $0.02-US $0.02US $0.02-Zinc (per pound)US ($0.01)US ($0.01)-US ($0.01)US ($0.01)-Freight chargesCopper (per dry metric tonne of concentrate)US $46US $51-10%US $49US $49-Zinc (per dry metric tonne of concentrate)US $26US $30-13%US $25US $31-19%(1)2010 charges exclude Ok Tedi charges.Statutory tax rates remain consistentThe table below shows the statutory tax rates for each of our taxable operating mines.20112010changeStatutory tax ratesÇayeli24%24%-Las Cruces30%30%-Pyhäsalmi26%26%-Earnings from operationsthree months ended September 30nine months ended September 30(thousands)20112010change20112010changeGross sales$261,757$225,960+16%$737,986$548,287+35%Smelter processing charges and freight(37,043)(34,358)+8%(102,498)(102,731)-Cost of sales:Direct production costs(75,406)(65,355)+15%(224,057)(160,100)+40%Inventory changes(4,836)(2,938)+65%(6,337)(6,430)-1%Other non-cash expenses(900)(2,210)-59%(3,544)(4,362)-19%Depreciation(27,321)(19,062)+43%(81,010)(37,106)+118%Earnings from operations$116,249$102,037+14%$320,540$237,558+35%Significantly higher gross salesthree months ended September 30nine months ended September 30(thousands)20112010change20112010changeGross sales by operationÇayeli$93,168$96,204-3%$274,050$253,667+8%Las Cruces86,36461,849+40%255,97761,849+314%Pyhäsalmi82,22558,014+42%207,959160,701+29%Other (Troilus)-9,893-100%-72,070-100%$261,757$225,960+16%$737,986$548,287+35%Gross sales by metalCopper$176,632$159,300+11%$513,102$316,824+62%Zinc47,61639,951+19%142,779126,222+13%Gold-8,625-100%-54,917-100%Other37,50918,084+107%82,10550,324+63%$261,757$225,960+16%$737,986$548,287+35%Key components of the increase in sales:increasing gross sales at Las Cruces, higher pyrite sales at Pyhäsalmi, no sales at Troilus (millions)three months ended September 30nine months ended September 30Higher copper prices, denominated in Canadian dollars$1$64Higher (lower) zinc prices, denominated in Canadian dollars(5)1Changes in other metal prices11192010 gross sales from Troilus(10)(72)Higher sales volumes at our other mines39178Higher gross sales, compared to 2010$36$190We record sales that settle during the reporting period using the metal price on the day they settle. For sales that have not settled, we use an estimate based on the month we expect the sale to settle and the forward price of the metal at the end of the reporting period. We recognize the difference between our estimate and the final price by adjusting our gross sales in the period when we settle the sale (finalization adjustment).This quarter, we recorded $3 million in negative finalization adjustments from second quarter sales. At the end of this quarter, the following sales had not been settled:24 million pounds of copper provisionally priced at US $3.18 per pound 24 million pounds of zinc provisionally priced at US $0.84 per pound. The finalization adjustment we record for these sales will depend on the actual price we receive when they settle, which can be up to five months from the time we initially record the sales. We expect these sales to settle in the following months:(millions of pounds)copperzincOctober 20111819November 201165Unsettled sales at September 30, 20112424Significantly higher copper, zinc and pyrite sales volumes, no gold sales volumes Our sales volumes are directly affected by the amount of production from our mines and our ability to ship to our customers. Copper production volumes were up this quarter and year to date mainly because of higher production at Las Cruces. Copper sales volumes were higher than production volumes this quarter mainly because of the timing of shipments to our customers at Çayeli and Pyhäsalmi. Zinc sales volumes this quarter and year to date were higher than 2010 due to higher production volumes, and the timing of shipments to our customers. There were no gold production or sales volumes because Troilus stopped operating in June 2010 and we sold our interest in Ok Tedi in January 2011. Pyhäsalmi's pyrite sales volumes were higher than in 2010 because of increased customer demand in Europe and China. three months ended September 30nine months ended September 30Sales volumes20112010(1)change20112010(1)changeCopper (tonnes)23,10018,000+28%60,00047,700+26%Zinc (tonnes)23,90018,400+30%67,00059,700+12%Gold (ounces)-6,700-100%-46,000-100%Pyrite (tonnes)269,200136,000+98%633,200395,100+60%Productionthree months ended September 30nine months ended September 30revised objectiveInmet's share(2)20112010(1)change20112010(1)change2011(3)Copper (tonnes)Çayeli7,1007,300-3%20,10021,500-7%28,400Las Cruces11,4005,800+97%28,00013,600+106%43,500Pyhäsalmi3,2003,900-18%10,50010,800-3%13,300Troilus----2,000-100%-21,70017,000+28%58,60047,900+22%85,200Zinc (tonnes)Çayeli13,90011,700+19%36,90038,200-3%48,000Pyhäsalmi9,1009,100-25,60021,900+17%31,90023,00020,800+11%62,50060,100+4%79,900Gold (ounces)Troilus----37,900-100%-Pyrite (tonnes)Pyhäsalmi210,10062,000+239%594,300397,000+50%800,000(1)2010 volumes have been revised to exclude Ok Tedi.(2)Inmet's share: 100 percent for Çayeli, Pyhäsalmi and Troilus. Our share of Las Cruces was 70 percent until December 15, 2010 and 100 percent after that.(3)2011 objective was revised for Çayeli's to reduce its copper production and increase its zinc production. All other production objectives are unchanged. 2011 outlook for sales We use our production objectives to estimate our sales target.We expect copper production in 2011 to be 85,200 tonnes. Copper production at Las Cruces should be more than 50 percent higher than it was in 2010 as the operation ramps up to its nameplate capacity of 72,000 tonnes of copper cathode, and because we increased our ownership from 70 percent to 100 percent in December 2010. We have reduced our copper production for Çayeli from 30,900 tonnes to 28,400 tonnes for the year to reflect lower recoveries year to date. We expect 2011 zinc sales and production volumes to be slightly lower than 2010 volumes because of lower grades and recoveries at Çayeli. Notwithstanding this, zinc grades at this operation year to date are higher than anticipated and we have increased our zinc production objective by 2,300 tonnes. We do not expect any gold sales in 2011. Pyhäsalmi expects to produce and sell 800,000 tonnes of pyrite in 2011. It signed a five year sales contract in March 2011 with a customer in the Far East for up to 400,000 tonnes of pyrite per year, and now has long term agreements covering sales of up to 760,000 tonnes annually. Our Canadian dollar sales revenues are affected by the US dollar denominated metal price we receive, and the exchange rate between the US dollar and Canadian dollar. Since mid-September this year, there has been a weakening in the economic environment and a decline in base metal prices. Our estimates for our 2011 operating earnings and cash flows reflect this decline. See Results of our operations on page 14 for more information.

We sell approximately 90 percent of our copper concentrate under long-term contracts. Spot smelter processing charges for copper concentrates have now normalized, after being significantly higher earlier this year than they were in 2010 because the earthquake in Japan in March caused temporary stoppages in copper smelter production, lowering short-term demand for copper concentrates. We expect spot prices to be lower for the remainder of 2011 due to production interruptions and declining grades at operating mines.We expect copper price participation to be minimal.We expect total zinc smelter processing charges, including price participation, to be lower than in 2010 because of a tightening zinc concentrate market and our long-term contracts reflect this.We expect our ocean freight costs to be similar to 2010. Las Cruces sells its copper cathode production directly to buyers in the Spanish and Mediterranean markets, so it does not incur smelter processing charges and has relatively low freight costs.

At Çayeli, consumables, ground control and royalty costs were higher, as anticipated in our guidance. Pyhäsalmi realized higher consumable and ground support costs, as well as incremental costs associated with producing more pyrite this year to meet higher customer demand.Inventory changesCopper inventories at Çayeli and Pyhäsalmi were down at the end of this quarter because of the timing of shipments.2011 outlook for cost of sales (excluding depreciation)We expect consolidated direct production costs to be higher in 2011 because we will recognize a full year of production costs in the income statement for Las Cruces. This will be somewhat offset by the closure of Troilus. Our budget for 2011 assumes our costs will be similar to 2010 at Pyhäsalmi, and higher than 2010 at Çayeli. Costs at Las Cruces will increase as production increases, but costs per pound of copper produced should decrease significantly.Certain variable costs may continue to affect our earnings, depending on metal prices:royalties at Çayeli are affected by its net income royalties at Las Cruces are affected by its net sales.

There was no depreciation at Troilus in 2011 because it stopped operating in June 2010. 2011 outlook for depreciationWe expect depreciation to be higher in 2011 mainly because we will recognize Las Cruces' operating results in earnings for the entire year. This will be offset somewhat by the closure of Troilus. Corporate costsCorporate costs include corporate development and exploration, general and administration costs, taxes, interest and other income. Corporate development and explorationCosts year to date are approximately $15 million higher than 2010. In the first quarter, we incurred approximately $6 million of expenses related to the arrangement agreement to merge with Lundin Mining Corporation. We and Lundin Mining Corporation agreed to mutually terminate our arrangement agreement on March 29, 2011. All of the costs incurred in connection with the proposed merger were expensed and classified as corporate development and exploration in the consolidated statement of earnings. In addition, we incurred $2 million in expenditures in the first quarter to drill the Balboa deposit at Cobre Panama. Work on the Balboa deposit has continued and we began capitalizing drilling and evaluation costs for this deposit in the second quarter based on the positive results to date. See Status of development project – Cobre Panama on page 21 for more information. Increased costs compared to 2010 also reflect our higher budget for 2011 to explore for world class deposits.General and administrationGeneral and administration costs are largely for management remuneration, governance and strategy. Costs year to date were $11 million higher than 2010 ($6 million in the third quarter) mainly because of increased human resources and other spending as we move forward with Cobre Panama, and the impact of share-based compensation plans adopted earlier this year.Investment and other incomethree months ended September 30nine months ended September 30(thousands)2011201020112010Interest income$4,829$1,990$11,806$5,347Foreign exchange gains30,48366119,390463Dividend and royalty income4666501,5332,539Other-(104)2,007(627)$35,778$3,197$34,736$7,722Interest incomeInterest income was higher this quarter and year to date compared to last year because our long-term bond portfolio had higher yields and our cash and long-term bond balances were higher.

We have recognized total foreign exchange gains of $12 million year to date ($23 million this quarter) on these funds because the US dollar appreciated in value relative to the Canadian dollar. Çayeli's income taxes are denominated in Turkish lira. This operation recognized a foreign exchange gain of $4 million ($3 million this quarter) from the revaluation of its income taxes payable due to the appreciation of the US dollar (Çayeli's functional currency) relative to the Turkish lira.2011 outlook for investment and other incomeInvestment and other income is affected by cash and held to maturity investments, and by interest rates and exchange rates.Stand-by costsIn the first quarter of 2010, we could not mine ore at Las Cruces because of water levels in the pit. We expensed $7 million in operating and maintenance costs for the water purification plant because they did not relate to production activities. We recognized these expenses as stand-by costs because we were not yet at commercial production.Income tax expense three months ended September 30nine months ended September 30(thousands)20112010change20112010changeÇayeli$19,274$7,418$42,866$23,022Las Cruces5,24010,78215,174(4,074)Pyhäsalmi10,4916,27324,88916,783Corporate and other(1,235)793(735)1,396$33,770$25,266$82,194$37,127Consolidated effective tax rate25%27%-2%28%18%+10%Our tax expense changes as our earnings change. The consolidated effective tax rate is higher year to date compared to last year, mainly because in 2010 Las Cruces recognized a tax recovery on a foreign exchange loss from its intercompany US dollar denominated debt. The foreign exchange eliminates on consolidation, but the tax recovery does not, since there is no corresponding tax expense on the foreign exchange gain. Additionally, taxes at Çayeli were higher this year as it recognized a tax expense on a foreign exchange gain from its US dollar denominated cash (Çayeli's income taxes are denominated in Turkish lira).2011 outlook for income tax expenseWe expect statutory tax rates at our operations to remain the same as they were in 2010 unless a statutory tax rate change is enacted.Discontinued operationWe sold our 18 percent equity interest in Ok Tedi in January 2011, and have reported our results relating to Ok Tedi as discontinued operations retroactively. After-tax income of $83 million in 2011 includes net earnings of $17 million in January, before the sale, and a gain on sale of $66 million net of withholding taxes. We paid Papua New Guinea withholding taxes of $28 million on the sale. We did not pay any Canadian taxes, and we have reduced our tax-effected Canadian tax loss pools by about $2 million. Results of our operations2011 estimatesOur financial review by operation includes estimates for our 2011 operating earnings and operating cash flows. We have based these estimates on our 2011 objectives for production and cost per tonne of ore milled, as well as the following assumptions for the fourth quarter of the year: Copper priceUS $3.40 per poundZinc priceUS $0.85 per poundCopper treatment costUS $56 per tonne for contractsZinc treatment costUS $229 per tonne (basis US $2,500 per tonne) for contractsUS $ to C$ exchange rate$1.00euro to C$ exchange rate$1.40Working capitalAssume no changes for the yearÇayelithree months ended September 30nine months ended September 30revised objective20112010change20112010change2011Tonnes of ore milled (000's)312275+13%880859+2%1,200Tonnes of ore milled per day3,4003,000+13%3,2003,100+2%3,300Grades (percent) copper3.13.4-9%3.13.2-3%3.2zinc6.56.2+5%6.26.3-2%5.9Mill recoveries (percent) copper7478-5%7477-4%75zinc6868-6871-4%68Production (tonnes) copper7,1007,300-3%20,10021,500-7%28,400zinc13,90011,700+19%36,90038,200-3%48,000Cost per tonne of ore milled (C$)$81$81-$81$76+7%$81Higher grades increase zinc production this quarterMill throughput at Çayeli was strong this quarter, and in line with its annual 1.2 million tonne objective. In August 2011, we mined over 107,000 tonnes of ore, setting an all-time record, and have now mined more than 100,000 tonnes of ore per month for four consecutive months. This increase in performance is the result of improved mine planning processes, the implementation of a mine control system, and additional rehabilitation resources.Copper grades year to date are slightly lower than last year, but we expect higher grades in the last quarter this year and have not revised our view on average grades. Recoveries for both copper and zinc this year are lower than 2010 because of the difficulties associated with processing ore containing bornite minerals. Copper production was therefore slightly below 2010 and our expectations. Zinc grades this quarter were higher than the third quarter of 2010 because of variation in ore types. In conjunction with higher mill throughput, this resulted in significantly higher zinc production this quarter. Cost per tonne of ore milled year to date was higher than 2010 mainly because of higher royalty costs (pushed up by higher realized metals prices), additional ground support costs and increased costs for consumables. This change was, however, consistent with our expectations and the objective for the year.2011 outlook and revised objectivesProduction levels in 2011 should remain at approximately 1.2 million tonnes. We continue to expect copper grades to be 3.2 percent for the year but we have lowered our expected copper recoveries from 80 percent to 75 percent to recognize lower recoveries year to date. Therefore we have reduced our copper production objective by 2,500 tonnes to 28,400 tonnes.We have increased our zinc grade objective from 5.6 percent to 5.9 percent to reflect actual performance for the first nine months of the year and we have increased our zinc production objective by 2,300 tonnes to 48,000.Financial review Lower copper and zinc prices reduced operating earnings this quarter(millions of Canadian dollars unless otherwise stated)three months ended September 30nine months ended September 30revised objective20112010201120102011Sales analysisCopper sales (tonnes)8,1008,40020,60021,50028,400Zinc sales (tonnes)14,5009,60040,10038,50048,000Gross copper sales$55$69$167$161$227Gross zinc sales28218580100Other metal sales106221329Gross sales9396274254356Smelter processing charges and freight(21)(19)(57)(58)(77)Net sales$72$77$217$196$279Cost analysisTonnes of ore milled (thousands)3122758808591,200Direct production costs ($ per tonne)$81$81$81$76$81Direct production costs$25$22$71$65$97Change in inventory313--Depreciation and other non-cash costs76191925Operating costs$35$29$93$84$122Operating earnings$37$48$124$112$157Operating cash flow$57$21$148$74$142The objective for 2011 uses the assumptions listed on page 14.The table below shows what contributed to the change in operating earnings and operating cash flow between 2011 and 2010.(millions)three months ended September 30nine months ended September 30Higher (lower) copper prices, denominated in Canadian dollars$(11)$13Higher (lower) zinc prices, denominated in Canadian dollars(4)2Higher other metal prices, denominated in Canadian dollars39Lower copper sales volumes(3)(9)Higher zinc sales volumes5-Higher production costs, including royalty(3)(6)Lower smelter processing charges and freight34Other(1)(1)Higher (lower) operating earnings, compared to 2010(11)12Change in tax expense because of change in taxable income(10)(16)Changes in working capital (see note 20 on page 75)5678Other1-Higher operating cash flow, compared to 2010$36$74The change in working capital this quarter is mainly from lower accounts receivable.Capital spending three months ended September 30nine months ended September 30revised objective(thousands)20112010change20112010change2011Capital spending$1,900$3,300-42%$9,600$8,200+17%$15,0002011 outlook for capital spendingWe expect to spend $15 million on capital in 2011 for underground development, ore pass rehabilitation, mobile equipment, a shotcrete delivery line extension, a new concrete batch plant and other improvements to the mill.Las Crucesthree months ended September 30nine months ended September 30revised objective(100 percent)20112010change20112010change2011Tonnes of ore processed (000's)209143+46%545331+65%800Copper grades (percent)6.57.5-13%6.37.2-13%6.3Plant recoveries (percent)8777+13%8581+5%86Cathode copper production (tonnes)11,4008,400+36%28,00019,500+44%43,500Cost per pound of cathode produced (C$)(1)$1.43$1.68-15%$1.76$1.68not applicable$1.59(1)Subsequent to July 1, 2010Improved plant performanceWe produced 11,400 tonnes of cathode this quarter, including a record 4,500 tonnes in August. Plant modifications during the June shutdown had a positive impact on production, which was interrupted in July when a support structure of the new grinding thickener failed due to a faulty weld. Since repairs were made, the grinding thickener has operated as required.Reactor performance and reliability continued to improve this quarter, and by the end of September, all eight reactors had operated reliably for 30 consecutive days. The major modifications to the plant, including the fines bypass system, pinned bed clarifier and the leach feed surge tank, have all been installed and are now being commissioned. Mining activities year to date are close to planned levels, despite limited access in the first half of the year because of water levels in the pit. Surface stockpiles are approaching 700,000 tonnes, and should remain at that level through to year end, in preparation for the rainy season. Our water treatment and drainage and reinjection well systems performed very well this quarter, and the pit is in optimal condition as we head into the rainy season. Our contact water storage ponds are at only 40 percent of their available capacity, and we have reduced our water discharge to the river to remain well below our regulated limits for the year.Cost per pound of cathode produced this quarter was significantly lower than earlier in the year and in the same quarter of 2010, as higher production translated into a lower unit cost. 2011 outlookFollowing a successful third quarter, we continue to target a ramp up to production design capacity by year end, and we continue to expect cathode production of 42,000 – 45,000 tonnes this year. We are currently testing the plant at up to 100 percent throughput levels to assess its overall stability and identify any remaining bottlenecks. We have installed a higher strength conveyor belt to accommodate higher tonnage, and intend to increase the width of the conveyor in early 2012 to provide capacity above design. We have seen copper recoveries improve to an average of 87 percent this quarter and continue to push to reach design levels of 91 percent. We expect this improvement to evolve with better oxygen dispersion as we pilot the fifth generation oxygen distributors (currently installed in one reactor), and with further improvements in overall fluid flow and process control. We completed a three day shutdown in October to change worn mill linings, and are not planning any further production interruptions this year.Las Cruces' cost per pound of cathode produced should continue to go down as production increases. By the first quarter of 2012, we expect to have a reliable prediction for long term costs when one time contractor costs can be separated from ongoing maintenance costs.Financial review Higher operating earnings and operating cash flow this year as Las Cruces ramps up(millions of Canadian dollars unless otherwise stated)three months ended September 30nine months ended September 30revised objective2011201020112011Sales analysisCopper sales (tonnes)10,8008,60029,20043,500Gross copper sales$86$62$256$364Smelter processing charges and freight--(1)(1)Net sales$86$62$255$363Cost analysisPounds of copper produced (millions)25186296Direct production costs ($ per pound)$1.43$1.68$1.76$1.59Direct production costs$3631$109$153Change in inventory(1)(1)4-Depreciation and other non-cash costs18115788Operating costs$5341$170$241Operating earnings$33$21$85$122Operating cash flow$50$32$149$207The objective for 2011 uses the assumptions listed on page 14.The table below shows what contributed to the change in operating earnings and operating cash flow between the three months ended September 30, 2011 and 2010.(millions)three months ended September 30Higher copper prices, denominated in Canadian dollars$9Higher copper sales volumes16Higher production costs, including royalty(5)Higher depreciation(7)Other(1)Higher operating earnings, compared to 201012Changes in working capital (see note 20 on page 75)1Change in depreciation7Other(2)Higher operating cash flow, compared to 2010$18Capital spending three months ended September 30nine months ended September 30revised objective(100 percent and millions of Canadian dollars)20112010change20112010change2011Capital$10$23-57%$44$52-15%$61Pre-operating costs capitalized, net of sales, working capital and other-(7)-100%-(60)-100%-$10$16-38%$44$(8)-650%$61Capital spending this year has been mainly on making improvements to the plant, the permanent water purification plant and mine development.

Zinc grades were significantly higher year to date compared to last year, pushing zinc production significantly higher. Copper production this quarter was below the same quarter in 2010 and consistent with our plan because of variations in copper grades. Pyrite production was significantly higher this year to meet higher customer demand. In August, Pyhäsalmi shipped a record 150,000 tonnes of pyrite concentrate to customers.Operating costs have been higher this year mostly because of increased group support and consumables costs, and due to the incremental costs associated with producing more pyrite.2011 outlookPyhäsalmi remains on target to mine 1.4 million tonnes of 1 percent copper and 2.6 percent zinc in 2011, and to produce 13,300 tonnes of copper and 31,900 tonnes of zinc. Pyhäsalmi expects to produce and sell 800,000 tonnes of pyrite in 2011 and has long term agreements covering sales of up to 760,000 tonnes per year.Financial reviewHigher earnings because of significantly higher pyrite sales volumes(millions of Canadian dollars unless otherwise stated)three months ended September 30nine months ended September 30revised objective20112010201120102011Sales analysisCopper sales (tonnes)4,2003,50010,30010,40013,300Zinc sales (tonnes)9,4008,80026,90021,20031,900Pyrite sales (tonnes)269,200136,000633,200395,100800,000Gross copper sales$35$27$90$79$113Gross zinc sales1919584667Other metal sales2812603673Gross sales8258208161253Smelter processing charges and freight(16)(15)(45)(40)(56)Net sales$66$43$163$121$197Cost analysisTonnes of ore milled (thousands)3513511,0381,0511,370Direct production costs ($ per tonne)$41$35$42$38$42Direct production costs$14$12$44$40$58Change in inventory31-(1)-Depreciation and other non-cash costs337710Operating costs$20$16$51$46$68Operating earnings$46$27$112$75$129Operating cash flow$24$26$93$53$106The objective for 2011 uses the assumptions listed on page 14.The table below shows what contributed to the change in operating earnings and operating cash flow between 2011 and 2010.

We continue to expect to announce revised capital and operating cost estimates for the project at the conclusion of basic engineering (early 2012), allowing major civil work to begin at that time. We continued with preparatory road construction this quarter on a pioneer road to the tailings dam site, and other road by-passes and upgrades, as well as preparation for bridge construction. Update on Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA) approval We continue to await ESIA approval for the project. The government's review and assessment process has been methodical and thorough. Our final step in the process this quarter was to submit our responses to the second round of questions posed by Autoridad Nacional del Ambiente (ANAM), the Panamanian environmental authority, and other consulting ministries and the public file indicates that the Panamanian government has completed its technical review.When we receive and formally announce ESIA approval, Korea Panama Mining Corporation will have seven days to make its election on whether to exercise its option to acquire a 20 percent interest in Minera Panama.Partnership processWe continue to engage with potential new partners in Cobre Panama. Interested parties are engaged in various stages of due diligence under confidentiality agreements.DrillingWe continued with resource drilling this quarter on the recently discovered Balboa deposit, to delineate the extents of the zone as well as infill drilling on 100 metre centres. This quarter, we completed 11,150 metres of drilling in 21 holes, bringing the total to date for this deposit to 28,400 metres in 48 holes. We plan to continue the program to the end of this year with a view to establishing National Instrument 43-101 compliant mineral resources for the Balboa deposit in early 2012. Metallurgical test work is also continuing on the mineralization, which should allow us to convert Balboa resources into reserves and include them in a revised mine plan for the property later in 2012.2011 outlook for developmentWe plan to:continue our dialogue with stakeholders at the community, regional and national levels, to increase their understanding of the project and its benefits to Panama, and our understanding of their potential concerns work with all the government agencies to obtain permits that will be required after the ESIA is approved continue with a 720 hectare reforestation plan outside of the concession area, as a first step in our biodiversity commitments work with environmental non-governmental organizations and the environmental authorities to plan the conservation initiative for two national parks in the general project region, but outside the project footprint area continue to expand site access and infrastructure complete additional drilling for geotechnical and hydrological purposes and to improve our understanding of mineralization not currently included in the project base case complete basic engineering and prepare to begin site capture when we receive the main permits Work with SK Engineering and Construction, Co. Ltd. on the development of the 300 megawatt thermal power plant to supply power for the project develop a range of financing options including a project level limited recourse facility, capital market alternatives and potential new partners spend the balance of our capital expenditures budget of $177 million to carry out the work described. This budget represents a reduction of $47 million from our initial capital spending objective of $224 million, and reflects the delay of $24 million of advance payments for mill equipment and certain advance projects to early 2012. After basic engineering is completed and we have received the appropriate approvals, site capture, preparation and construction should take approximately 48 months.Managing our liquidityWe develop our financing strategy by considering our long-term capital requirements and deciding on the optimal mix of cash, future operating cash flow, credit facilities and project financing.

Purchase of long-term investmentsWe used the US dollar proceeds from the sale of Ok Tedi to buy US $274 million in US Treasury bonds with AA credit ratings. The bonds mature between March 2012 and January 2016 and have a weighted average annual yield to maturity of 1.2 percent. In 2010, we bought $296 million in medium-term Canadian government and corporate bonds with credit ratings of A to AAA.Issuing common sharesOn May 17, 2011, a subsidiary of Temasek Holdings (Private) Ltd. exchanged its subscriptions receipts for 7.78 million Inmet common shares and we received $500 million in cash, plus accrued interest on funds in escrow during the subscription period.Cash from discontinued operationIn January 2011, we sold our 18 percent equity interest in Ok Tedi for net proceeds of $307 million (after Papua New Guinea withholding taxes).2011 outlook for investing and financingCapital spending We expect capital spending to be $261 million in 2011. The more significant items include: $177 million for work on the development at Cobre Panama, including basic engineering, advance payments for mill equipment and other costs to advance development. This budget represents a reduction of $47 million from our initial capital spending objective of $224 million, and reflects the delay of $24 million of advance payments for mill equipment and certain advance projects to early 2012. $61 million at Las Cruces, including $16 million for mine development and $37 million for plant improvements. Financial conditionOur strategy is to ensure we have sufficient liquidity (including cash and committed credit facilities) to finance our operating requirements as well as our growth projects. At September 30, 2011, we had $1,738 million in total funds, including $1,090 million in cash and short-term investments and $648 million invested in long-term bonds.CashAt September 30, 2011, cash and short-term investments of $1,090 million included cash and money market instruments that mature in 90 days or less. Our policy is to invest excess cash in highly liquid investments of the highest credit quality, and to limit our exposure to individual counterparties to minimize the risk associated with these investments. We base our decisions about the length of maturities on our cash flow requirements, rates of return and other factors.At September 30, 2011, we held cash and short-term investments in the following:A to AAA rated treasury funds and money market funds managed by leading international fund managers, who are investing in money market and short-term debt securities and fixed income securities issued by leading international financial institutions and their sponsored securitization vehicles. Cash, term and overnight deposits with leading Canadian and international financial institutions that are benefiting directly and indirectly from support programs by various governments and central banks. See note 7 on page 69 in the consolidated financial statements for more details about where our cash is invested.Medium-term bondsWe have created a bond portfolio to provide better yields with no change to our investment risk. As at September 30, 2011, the portfolio was $648 million (Held to maturity investments - note 9): 58 percent US Treasury bonds 5 percent Government of Canada bonds 33 percent Canadian Provincial Government bonds 4 percent corporate bonds. The bonds mature between December 2011 and August 2016. Although our intention is to hold these investments to maturity, there is a liquid market for them and they are available to us at any time.Restricted cashOur restricted cash balance of $76 million as at September 30, 2011 included:$17 million in cash collateralized letters of credit for Inmet $57 million at Las Cruces related to a reclamation bond, issuing letters of credit to suppliers and the local water authority and for its labour bond to the government $2 million for future reclamation at Pyhäsalmi.

The first quarter of 2011 was the first presentation of our results under IFRS, with an effective transition date of January 1, 2010. While the adoption of IFRS did not change our business activities, it has significantly changed our reported financial position. Our key controls over financial reporting did not change as a result of our transition to IFRS. For all changes to policies and procedures that have been identified, the effectiveness of internal controls over financial reporting and disclosure controls and procedures has been assessed and any changes have been implemented. In addition, controls over the IFRS changeover process have been implemented as necessary.See note 3 to our interim consolidated financial statements for a complete list of our significant accounting policies followed on adoption of IFRS. See note 6 to the financial statements for a detailed description of our conversion to IFRS, including a line-by-line reconciliation of our financial statements previously prepared under Canadian GAAP to those under IFRS for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2010 and for the year ended December 31, 2010. The table below reconciles total equity under Canadian GAAP to total equity under IFRS, and illustrates the after-tax effect of each of the most significant adjustments had on equity.NotesJanuary 1, 2010September 30, 2010December 31, 2010Canadian GAAP equity$2,238,145$2,392,961$2,758,484IFRS adjustments:Reclassification of non-controlling interest to equity78,00573,597-Revenue recognitioni14,21018,75330,023Reversal of impairment of assets – Çayeliii42,39536,58934,005Provision for asset retirement obligationsiii(38,349)(36,276)(41,310)Acquisition of the non-controlling interest in Las Crucesiv--(254,056)Property, plant and equipment associated with asset retirement obligationsv8,30412,98912,175Other18,70218,87315,218IFRS equity$2,361,412$2,517,486$2,554,539i) Revenue Under Canadian GAAP, we recognized revenue when title was legally transferred to the purchaser. For certain shipments at Çayeli, Pyhäsalmi and Ok Tedi, we transfer title when we receive the first provisional payment, which is later than the transfer point for risks and rewards of ownership.Under IFRS, we recognize revenue when all significant risks and rewards of ownership of our products are transferred to the purchaser. ii) Impairment of assetsUnder Canadian GAAP, we used a two-step approach to impairment testing: first comparing asset carrying values with undiscounted future cash flows to determine whether impairment exists then measuring any impairment by comparing asset carrying values with fair values (generally assessed using a discounted cash flow valuation process). Under IFRS we use a one-step approach to test for and measure impairment, and compare asset carrying values directly with the higher of fair value less costs to sell and value in use (which uses discounted future cash flows). IFRS also requires a full or partial reversal of previous impairment losses when circumstances have changed and the impairments have been reduced. Impairment losses were not reversed under Canadian GAAP. We increased January 1, 2010 property plant and equipment at Çayeli by approximately $50 million to reverse an impairment charge we recognized for this operation in 1996. The increase is the IFRS carrying amount we would have calculated, net of depreciation, if we had not recognized the original impairment. This will also result in a higher ongoing depreciation expense for Çayeli, including an increase of $8 million for the year ended December 31, 2010.iii) Asset retirement obligationsUnder Canadian GAAP, we used a credit adjusted risk free interest rate and were not required to update the rate when market rates changed. Under IFRS, we measure asset retirement obligations using a risk free interest rate and revalue when market risk free interest rates change. iv) Business combinationsUnder Canadian GAAP, companies that acquired an additional interest in an entity they already controlled accounted for it as a step acquisition. Under IFRS, acquiring a non-controlling interest is not considered a business combination, and is instead accounted for as an equity transaction.Under IFRS, we have accounted for our acquisition of the remaining 30 percent interest in Las Cruces in December 2010 as an equity transaction, because we already controlled it. We recognized the difference between the non-controlling interest (as determined under IFRS) and the fair value of the consideration paid, in retained earnings.v) First time adoption of IFRS: property, plant and equipment associated with asset retirement obligationsFirst time adoption of International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS 1) provides specific exemptions that we used when we adopted IFRS.IFRS and Canadian GAAP both require us to recognize a corresponding change in asset retirement obligations in the carrying value of the related property, plant and equipment (where we identify an asset) and depreciate this amount prospectively. The amount under IFRS was different from the amount determined under Canadian GAAP because of the different way IFRS determines asset retirement obligations. We used an optional transitional calculation to determine the property, plant and equipment associated with our provision for asset retirement obligations. Under the transitional calculation, we measured the provision at the transition date and discounted it to the date the liability first arose. The result became the initial asset value. Depreciation was applied to this value. We applied this exemption to certain mines instead of determining property, plant and equipment associated with asset retirement obligations retrospectively.Supplementary financial informationPages 30 and 31 include supplementary financial information about cash costs. These measures do not fall into the category of International Financial Reporting Standards. We use unit cash cost information as a key performance indicator, both on a segmented and consolidated basis. We have included cash costs as supplementary information because we believe our key stakeholders use these measures as a financial indicator of our profitability and cash flows before the effects of capital investment and financing costs, such as interest. Since cash costs are not recognized financial measures under International Financial Reporting Standards, they should not be considered in isolation of earnings or cash flows. There is also no standard way to calculate cash costs, so they are not a reliable way to compare us to other companies.About InmetInmet is a Canadian-based global mining company that produces copper, zinc and pyrite.

Corporate informationInmet Mining Corporation is a publicly traded corporation listed on the Toronto stock exchange. Our registered and head office is in Toronto, Canada. Our principal activities are the exploration, development and mining of base metals.2. Basis of presentation and statement of compliance International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) require us to make an explicit and unreserved statement that our financial statements are in compliance with IFRS. We will make this statement when we issue our 2011 annual financial statements. These condensed interim financial statements have been prepared in accordance with IAS 34 Interim Financial Reporting as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) and using the accounting policies we expect to adopt in our consolidated financial statements for the year ending December 31, 2011. This is the first year we have prepared our financial statements in accordance with IFRS. See note 6, First time adoption of IFRS, for information about our transition from Canadian GAAP. You should read our interim statements in conjunction with our annual statements which you can find in our 2010 Annual Report.We have prepared the consolidated financial statements under the historical cost convention, modified by the revaluation of certain financial instruments we have measured in accordance with IFRS. The financial statements are in Canadian dollars and all values are rounded to the nearest thousand except where otherwise indicated. These statements have been approved by Inmet's board of directors and have been reviewed by our external auditors. Our segmented statements reflect the management structure of our company, where each operation retains its own management team and compiles its own financial information, following the accounting policies outlined here.Çayeli – a mine in Turkey that produces copper and zinc concentrates. Çayeli is a wholly-owned subsidiary. Las Cruces – a high grade copper mine and plant operation in Spain that produces cathode copper. Las Cruces is a wholly-owned subsidiary. Pyhäsalmi – a mine in Finland that produces copper and zinc concentrates. Pyhäsalmi is a wholly-owned subsidiary. Cobre Panama – a copper, gold and molybdenum deposit currently under development in Panama. We have a 100 percent interest in Cobre Panama. Korea Panama Mining Corp owns an option to acquire a 20 percent interest in Cobre Panama. Corporate and other – our head office and closed properties. As a result of the closure of Troilus, we no longer consider it to be a separate reportable operating segment and included its results in Corporate and other retroactively. 3. Summary of significant accounting policiesBasis of consolidationEntities we controlWe have control of an entity when we have the right to govern its operating and financial policies (usually when we have more than 50 percent voting power through ownership or agreements), unless a non-controlling interest is able to prevent us from exercising control. We consolidate the results of entities we control and eliminate all intercompany balances and transactions. When we acquire a new entity, we consolidate from the day that control passes to us. We consolidate those we sell until the day control passes to the acquirer. Interests in jointly controlled entities We jointly control an entity when we hold a long-term interest in it, and share joint control over its operating and financial decisions with one or more other parties under a contractual arrangement. We proportionately consolidate our share of any entity we jointly control, combining its line-by-line results with similar line items in our financial statements. Foreign exchange Functional and presentation currencyInmet Mining's functional currency is the Canadian dollar. We report our consolidated financial statements in Canadian dollars.Our entities measure the items in their financial statements in their functional currency (the currency of the primary economic environment they operate in). Çayeli and Cobre Panama use the US dollar and Pyhäsalmi and Las Cruces use the euro.Foreign currency transactionsMonetary items denominated in foreign currencies are translated into each entity's functional currency at the rate of exchange on the balance sheet date, and gains and losses on translation are recognized in the statement of earnings for the period. We recognize all other transactions in foreign currencies at the exchange rate at the time of the transaction.Financial statements of foreign operationsFor operations that have a functional currency other than the Canadian dollar, we translate the statement of earnings and balance sheet as follows:assets and liabilities: translated at the closing rate at the end of the financial period. revenues and expenses: translated for each statement of earnings at rates approximating the exchange rates at the time of the transactions. resulting differences: recognized as a separate component of accumulated other comprehensive income. We also recognize exchange differences relating to long-term intercompany loan balances with foreign operations that form part of the net investment in the foreign operation in this separate component of accumulated other comprehensive income.When we sell all or part of a foreign operation, or repay its share capital or intercompany debt considered part of the net investment, we recognize exchange differences arising from the translation of the net investment in the statement of earnings. Business combinationsWhen we acquire a subsidiary, we account for it using the purchase method. The cost of the business combination is the fair value at the date of exchange of: the assets we gave the liabilities we incurred or assumed, and the equity instruments we issued in exchange for control. We allocate total consideration paid to the identifiable assets, liabilities and contingent liabilities (identifiable net assets) we acquired, at their fair value on the date of the acquisition, including mineral reserves and resources that can be reliably valued.We expense transaction costs related to an acquisition as incurred. If the fair value of our share of the identifiable net assets acquired is greater than the fair value of the consideration paid, we recognize the difference in the statement of earnings on the acquisition date. Non controlling interest is the portion of an entity that we do not own (the profit or loss and net assets we are not entitled to). We record non controlling interests in equity, separate from our shareholders' equity. RevenueGross sales include the sale of all concentrate, cathode copper and gold doré. It does not include smelter processing charges and freight, which are presented as a separate line item in the statement of earnings.We recognize revenue when all significant risks and rewards of ownership of our products have been transferred to the customer – usually when the customer takes on the insurance risk and the goods have been delivered to the shipping agent. Most of our sales contracts set the sales price at the commodity's market price on a specified future date. To calculate our revenue from the sale of our products, we use the forward price of the commodity for the day we expect the contract to settle. Variations between the price we record on the date of initial revenue recognition and the final price we receive due to changes in market prices represents an embedded derivative in our sales contracts. We adjust our revenue every period for any change in the value of the contract using the period end forward price for the day the contract is expected to settle. When it settles, we record the difference between the forward price and the final price we receive in revenue. We recognize interest income in investment and other income, based on the principal outstanding and the effective interest rate.We recognize dividends and royalties in investment and other income when we have established the right to receive payment.InventoriesInventories include:stockpiled ore, materials and supplies: ore, goods and supplies that will be consumed directly or indirectly in the production process work in process: inventory in an intermediate state that has not yet passed through all stages of the production process finished goods: concentrate, cathode copper and gold doré that are ready for sale. We measure inventory at the lower of cost or net realizable value, as follows: cost: a weighted average that includes all costs directly related to bringing the inventory to its current location and condition, such as mining and milling costs and an allocation of production overheads and depreciation based on normal capacity net realizable value: the estimated selling price less any additional costs we expect to incur for completion and sale of the related inventory. We classify inventories of stockpiled ore that we do not expect to process in the next year as other assets.Property, plant and equipmentOn initial acquisition, we recognize property, plant and equipment at cost. Cost includes the purchase price, costs that can be directly attributed to acquiring it, and the cost required to bring the asset to the location and the condition necessary to operate in the way we intended it to. In subsequent periods, we recognize it at cost less accumulated depreciation and any impairment in value. We depreciate the cost, less estimated residual values of property, plant and equipment, as follows: property: depreciated in proportion to the depletion of proven and probable reserves on a unit of production basis. plant and equipment: depreciated using a straight-line method based on estimated useful life. The expected useful lives of plant and equipment range from 5 to 15 years, but do not exceed the life of mine. When different parts (or components) of an asset are significant and have different useful lives, we depreciate the individual components separately, considering both a component's physical life, and the present estimated mineral reserves at the mine where the component is located. We review estimates in remaining useful lives and residual values at least annually and account for any changes prospectively.When we carry out a major maintenance refit, we may replace or overhaul assets or parts of assets. When we replace an asset or a component that we have been depreciating separately, we capitalize these costs if this extends its useful life and it is probable that this will result in future economic benefits to the operation. In addition, we write off the asset or component that has been replaced. If we replace part of an asset that was not considered a component, we use the replacement value to estimate the carrying amount of the replaced asset and immediately write that off. We expense all other regular maintenance costs as incurred. Exploration and evaluation expendituresWe expense the costs of exploration and evaluation as incurred, except for the following:in areas currently under development where we can reasonably expect to convert existing mineral resources into mineral reserves or add additional mineral resources with further drilling and evaluations the cost to acquire an early stage entity conducting primarily exploration and evaluation activities. In the first two instances, we capitalize costs as development expenditures. In the third instance, we capitalize costs as exploration and evaluation assets. Development expendituresWe capitalize the costs of acquiring and developing mineral reserves and resources on the balance sheet as we incur them. These costs include accessing the ore body, designing and constructing the production infrastructure, interest and financing relating to construction, and costs that can be directly attributed to bringing the assets to the condition necessary for their intended use. This includes costs during the commissioning period when required before the asset can operate at normal levels. Development expenditures are not depreciated. When production begins, we reclassify these costs to the appropriate category of property, plant and equipment and depreciate them according to our accounting policy.Capitalized strippingIn open pit mining operations, we remove overburden and other waste in order to access the ore body (stripping). During development, we capitalize the cost of stripping as part of the cost of mine development and reclassify it to property when production begins.During the production phase, we capitalize these costs to property when stripping activity gives us access to reserves that would not otherwise have been accessible, and that we expect will be mined in the future. We amortize production phase stripping costs over the reserves that are directly affected by the stripping activity on a units-of-production basis. LeasingWe determine whether an arrangement is, or contains, a lease based on the substance of the arrangement, considering whether the arrangement is dependent on the use of a specific asset or whether the arrangement conveys a right to use the asset. We classify a lease as financial when we carry substantially all of the risks and rewards of owning the asset. We capitalize assets under financial leases at either the fair value of the leased asset or the present value of the minimum lease payments over the lease term using the interest rate in the lease agreement – whichever is lower. We determine these amounts at the inception of the lease and depreciate the corresponding asset over its estimated useful life or the lease term – whichever is shorter. We recognize a corresponding amount representing our future obligation for finance leases in Other liabilities in the balance sheet, and recognize the associated accretion expense over time in finance costs in the statement of earnings. We classify a lease as operating when we do not have substantially all the risks and rewards of ownership. We recognize rentals payable under operating leases in the statement of earnings on a straight line basis over the term of the lease.Impairment of assetsAt each reporting date, we look for indications of impairment of our non-current assets. If there are indicators of impairment, we carry out a formal test to see whether the asset's carrying amount exceeds its recoverable amount. An asset's recoverable amount is its fair value less costs to sell or its value-in-use – whichever is higher. Fair value less costs to sell is the amount we would receive from the sale of the asset in an arm's-length transaction between knowledgeable and willing parties. For our mining assets, we generally use the present value of future cash flows we expect from their continued use, including any expansion prospects, and from their eventual disposal. When assessing cash flows and discounting them to present value, we use assumptions that we believe an arm's length party would consider appropriate. We calculate the value-in-use of an asset by using the present value of cash flows we expect from its continued use in its present form, and from its disposal, without taking into account any future development. Value-in-use is likely to be different from fair value because we use different assumptions. If the carrying amount of the asset exceeds its recoverable amount, we recognize an impairment loss in the statement of earnings to reflect the lower amount of the asset. We recognize impairment losses related to continuing operations in the statement of earnings in the expense category that relates to the asset's function.We carry out these reviews for each asset, unless the asset does not generate cash flows on its own. In this case, we will carry out the review at the cash-generating unit level. Cash generating units are the smallest identifiable group of assets and liabilities that generate cash inflows that are largely independent of the cash inflows from other assets or groups of assets. This generally results in an evaluation of assets at the mine entity level.We reverse an impairment loss in the statement of earnings if the estimates we used to calculate the recoverable amount have changed since we recognized the impairment. We increase the carrying amount to the recoverable amount, net of the depreciation or amortization that would have arisen if we had not recognized the original impairment loss. After a reversal, we recognize depreciation over the asset's remaining useful life based on its revised carrying amount, less any residual value.Government subsidiesWe recognize government subsidies when there is reasonable assurance we will receive the subsidy and will comply with all of the associated conditions. We credit government subsidies related to a capital expenditure against the carrying amount of the related asset, and amortize the subsidy over the expected useful life of the asset. We credit subsidies that are not associated with an asset to income, to match them with the expenses they relate to.Provisions for asset retirement obligationsOur mines, closed properties and joint ventures are subject to environmental laws and regulations in Canada and the other countries we operate in. Mining companies are legally obligated to rehabilitate land and other property that has been damaged or contaminated in the course of their business activities. While rehabilitation activities usually happen after the site has been closed, companies are required to estimate reclamation costs from both operating sites and closed sites. We incur obligations to restore and rehabilitate land and the environment as we carry out the regular construction and operation of our mines. Costs can include, among other things, the dismantling and demolition of infrastructure, removal of residual materials and remediation of disturbed areas. We recognize a provision for these costs as the related disturbances occur, using our best estimate of future costs based on information available at the balance sheet date, including an adjustment for risk when there is significant variability in possible outcomes. We discount the provision using a current inflation adjusted pre-tax risk free interest rate and include the accretion of the discounted amount over time in finance costs in the statement of earnings.When we recognize a provision, we record a corresponding increase in the carrying amount of the related asset (where we can identify one) and recognize depreciation following our accounting policies for property, plant and equipment. We review these provisions annually for changes to our obligations, legislation or discount rates that affect our cost estimates or lives of operations. We adjust the provision and the cost of the related asset (where we can identify one) when there is a change in the estimated cash flows or discount rate, and depreciate the adjusted cost of the asset prospectively. When we do not identify an asset, such as at our closed sites, we record a provision or a change in provision in cost of sales.Other provisionsWe recognize a provision when we have a legal or constructive obligation because of past events, and it is probable that, to settle the obligation, we will be required to make a payment that we can reliably estimate. If its effect is material, we discount the provision to net present value using a pre-tax risk free interest rate. We recognize the accretion of discounted provisions over the time of the obligation in finance costs in the statement of earnings.Income taxesWe calculate current income tax expense for each of our taxable entities based on the local taxable income at the local statutory tax rate enacted or substantively enacted at the balance sheet date, and include adjustments to income taxes payable or recoverable for previous periods. We calculate deferred tax assets and liabilities based on temporary differences between the carrying amounts in our balance sheet and their tax bases, using income tax rates we expect to be in effect when the temporary differences are likely to be settled. We present all deferred taxes as non-current assets and liabilities on the balance sheet. We only recognize deferred tax assets when it is probable that we will have enough taxable income in the future to recover them. We include the effects of changes in tax rates in income when the change is enacted or substantively enacted. We recognize deferred tax assets or liabilities for all temporary differences, except for: a deferred tax liability on the initial recognition of goodwill a deferred tax asset or liability arising from the initial recognition of an asset or liability in a transaction that is not a business combination and that, at the time of the transaction, does not affect accounting profit or loss, or taxable profit or loss a deferred tax liability related to investments in subsidiaries, branches, associates and interests in joint ventures, when we can control the timing of the reversal of the temporary difference and when it is probable that the temporary difference will not reverse in the foreseeable future. We review the carrying amount of deferred income tax assets at each balance sheet date and adjust it if:an asset not previously recognized meets the criteria for recognition our estimate of future taxable income available to recover them changes. We recognize current and deferred tax that relates to equity items in equity, and not in the statement of earnings. Assets held for sale and discontinued operationsAssets held for saleWe classify assets and disposal groups as held for sale if we will recover their carrying amounts through a sale transaction rather than through continuing use. This condition is regarded as met only when the sale is highly probable and the assets or disposal groups are available for immediate sale in their present condition. We must be committed to the sale, which should be expected to qualify for recognition as a completed sale within one year of the date of classification.We carry assets (or disposal groups) held for sale at the lower of the carrying amount before being classified as held for sale, and the fair value less costs to sell. We present the assets and liabilities of a disposal group classified as held for sale separately as one line in the assets and liabilities sections on the statement of financial position.Discontinued operationsA discontinued operation is a component of an entity that has been disposed of or classified as held for sale, with operations and cash flows that are clearly distinguished both operationally and for financial reporting purposes from the rest of the entity. To be classified as a discontinued operation, an operation must:represent a separate major line of business or geographical area of operations be part of a single coordinated plan to dispose of a separate major line of business or geographical area of operations, or be a subsidiary acquired only for resale. When the operation is discontinued at the balance sheet date, the results are presented in one line on the statement of earnings, and prior period results are represented as discontinued.See note 10 for a breakdown of our results from discontinued operations.Cash and short-term investmentsCash includes cash and money market instruments that mature in 90 days or less from the date of acquisition. Short-term investments mature in 91 days to a year.In the consolidated statements of cash flows, we disclose: short-term investments we buy with cash during the year as cash used in investing activities short-term investments we sell to generate cash as a source of cash from investing activities See note 7 for a breakdown of our cash and short-term investments.Restricted cashRestricted cash includes cash that has been pledged for other uses, such as reclamation, and is not available for immediate disbursement. See note 8 for a breakdown of our restricted cash.Financial instrumentsFinancial instruments include cash, as well as any contract that gives rise to a financial asset to one party and a financial liability or equity instrument to another party. We classify financial instruments at their initial recognition. We initially recognize financial instruments at their fair value.Fair value is the value a financial instrument can be closed out or sold at, in a transaction with a willing and knowledgeable counterparty. It is usually the instrument's quoted market price. If a quoted market price is not available, we determine fair value with models using market-based or independent information and assumptions.Cash and short-term investments, accounts receivable from metal sales, restricted cash and accounts payable and accrued liabilitiesThese financial instruments have been designated as fair value through profit and loss and are recorded at fair value. We record any changes in their fair value in net income. We record interest and dividends earned on cash, short-term investments and restricted cash in Investment and other income. For cash, we calculate fair value using published price quotations in an active market where there is one. Otherwise fair value represents cost plus accrued interest, which is reasonable given its short-term nature. We record accounts receivable related to metal sales at fair value based on forward market metal prices on the date of the balance sheet (see our Revenue policy above). We record accounts payable and accrued liabilities at amortized cost, which approximates fair value because of their short-term nature. InvestmentsOur investments in equity securities are designated as available-for-sale and recorded at fair value. We calculate fair value using the bid price of the investment as quoted in an active market. We record changes in the fair value of our investments in Other comprehensive income. The change in fair value of an investment in an equity security appears in Investment and other income only when it is sold or impaired. Our investments in long-term government and corporate bonds are designated as held to maturity. We initially recognize these investments at fair value and subsequently at amortized cost with the related interest income recorded in Investment and other income. We only designate investments as held to maturity when we intend, and have the ability, to hold them to maturity.We capitalize transaction costs related to investments we make and include these in the investment's initial carrying value. Loans and receivables All non-metal receivables are designated as loans and receivables. We initially measure these assets at fair value. In subsequent periods, we measure them at amortized cost using the effective interest rate method. Long-term debtOur long-term debt is designated as other liabilities and is accounted for at amortized cost. We record interest expense on long-term debt in finance costs in the statement of earnings unless it relates specifically to a development project, and has been accounted for using our accounting policy for borrowing costs. Derecognition of financial instrumentsWe will derecognize a financial asset when:our rights to receive cash flows from the asset have expired our right to receive cash flows has been retained, but we have assumed an obligation to pay them in full to a third party without material delay, or our right to receive cash flows has been transferred, together with substantially all the risks and rewards of ownership. We derecognize financial liabilities when the associated obligation is discharged, cancelled or has expired.Impairment of financial assetsWe review our investments for impairment at the end of each reporting period based on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, including the extent that cost exceeds market value, the length of a market decline and the financial health of the issuer. For loans and receivables and our investments in long-term bonds, we measure the amount of the loss as the difference between the asset's carrying amount and the present value of estimated future cash flows discounted at the asset's original effective interest rate. We reduce the carrying amount of the asset and recognize the amount of the loss in the income statement in investment and other income. If, in a subsequent period, the amount of the impairment loss decreases and the decrease can be related objectively to an event occurring after the impairment was recognized, we reverse the previously recognized impairment loss. We recognize any subsequent reversal of an impairment loss in the income statement, to the extent that the carrying value of the asset does not exceed its amortized cost at the reversal date.If our investments in equity securities are impaired, we transfer the difference between its cost and its current fair value, less any impairment loss previously recognized in the income statement, from accumulated other comprehensive income to the income statement in investment and other income.Embedded derivativesWhen we enter into a contract, we determine whether it contains an embedded derivative. We separate an embedded derivative from its host contract if the derivative is not measured at fair value through profit and loss, and when its economic characteristics and risks are not closely related to the host contract. In these circumstances, we recognize the embedded derivative according to our accounting policy for derivatives.Derivatives and hedgingWe designate non-financial derivative contracts as held-for-trading and record them at fair value on the balance sheet. We include mark-to-market adjustments on these instruments in net income, unless the instruments are designated as part of a hedge relationship.We record derivatives on the balance sheet at fair value. On the date we enter into a derivative, we designate it as a hedging instrument or a non-hedge derivative. A hedging instrument is designated in either: a fair value hedge relationship with a recognized asset or liability, or a cash flow hedge relationship with either a forecasted transaction, the variable future cash flows arising from a recognized asset or liability, or a foreign currency risk in an unrecognized firm commitment. When we enter into a hedging contract, we formally document the relationship between the hedging instrument and the items it hedges, and the related risk-management strategy. This documentation: links the hedging instrument to a specific asset or liability, specific forecasted transaction, firm commitment or variable future cash flows defines how we assess retrospective and prospective hedge effectiveness. At the end of every quarter, we determine whether we expect a hedging instrument to be highly effective in offsetting risk in the future. If we do not expect it to be highly effective, we stop hedge accounting prospectively, and keep accumulated gains or losses in other comprehensive income until the hedged item affects earnings. We also stop hedge accounting prospectively if: a derivative is settled it is no longer highly probable that a forecasted transaction will occur we de-designate a hedging relationship. If we conclude that it is probable that a forecasted transaction will not happen within the documented time frame, we immediately transfer all gains and losses accumulated in other comprehensive income to earnings. When hedge accounting stops, we reclassify the derivative as a non-hedge derivative prospectively. We classify cash flows from a derivative in the same category as the cash flows from the item it hedges. We record cash flows from non-hedge derivatives as operating cash flows. We record derivatives on the balance sheet at fair value and record changes in the fair value of derivatives at the end of every period: fair value hedges: we record the change in the fair value of the derivative and the item it hedges in earnings cash flow hedges: we record the change in the fair value of the derivative in other comprehensive income until earnings are affected by the item it hedges, except for any hedge ineffectiveness which we immediately record in earnings non-hedge derivatives: we record the change in the fair value of the derivative in investment and other income. Borrowing costsWhen we can attribute borrowing costs directly to the acquisition, construction or production of an asset that takes a substantial period of time to get ready for its intended use, we capitalize these costs as part of the asset's carrying value and amortize them over its useful life. Otherwise, we capitalize borrowing costs related to the establishment of a loan facility as long-term debt, and amortize them over the life of the loan facility. We recognize other borrowing costs as an expense when we incur them. Share capitalWhen we issue common shares, we recognize them in share capital at the net proceeds received (the fair value of the consideration we received, less costs we incurred to issue the shares). Share-based compensation plansWe have a number of equity-settled and cash settled share-based compensation plans for senior management under which we issue either Inmet common shares or make cash payments based on the value of Inmet common shares. We calculate the cumulative expense at each balance sheet date before vesting, basing it on the vesting period remaining and our best estimate of the fair value of awards that we ultimately expect to vest, and recognize any change in the statement of earnings in general and administration. Annually, we adjust the estimated forfeiture rate for actual forfeitures in the year. For equity settled awards, we determine the fair value at the grant date and recognize our obligation in equity. For cash-settled awards, we recalculate the fair value at each balance sheet date until the awards are settled and recognize our obligation as a liability. Our share-based compensation plans comprise the following:Stock option plan: Stock options are equity-settled by issuing shares from treasury. We estimate the fair value of stock options at the grant date using the Black-Scholes option pricing model. Options vest evenly over a four-year period. Performance share unit (PSU) plan: PSUs are cash-settled and are subject to certain vesting requirements and vest at the end of a three year performance period. Vesting requirements are based on performance criteria established by the board of directors (Board). We re-measure the fair value of PSUs at each balance sheet date using a Monte Carlo pricing model that takes into account expected volatility, expected dividend yield and the risk-free interest rate over the life of the PSUs to generate potential outcomes for share prices, which are used to estimate the probability of the PSUs vesting at the end of the three year performance measurement period. A Monte Carlo pricing model is a technique used to approximate the probability of certain outcomes, called simulations, based on normally distributed random variables and highly subjective assumptions. This model generates potential outcomes for stock prices and allows for the simulation of multiple stocks in tandem resulting in an estimated probability of vesting.Deferred share unit (DSU) program: this program allows Inmet directors to receive director fees in the form of DSUs rather than cash. DSUs are equity-settled by issuing shares from treasury and directors can only redeem their units for Inmet common shares when they retire. DSUs are fully vested when granted. We determine the fair value of DSUs at the grant date based on the closing trading price of an Inmet common share.Long-term incentive plan (LTIP): this plan ties a portion of incentive compensation to the completion of specific development projects as defined under the plan. LTIP units are equity-settled by issuing shares from treasury. The Board uses its discretion to determine the vesting date for an award, but vesting is generally when the development project is determined to be substantially complete and has operated for enough time to be able to assess its ongoing operating parameters. The Board determines the number of units that vest by assessing senior management's performance against the expectations underlying the Board's original decision to develop the project. We calculate the stock based compensation expense using the estimated vesting date for the project associated with an award, and an estimate of senior management's ultimate performance for an award based on performance to date (estimated performance). We determine the fair value of LTIP units at the grant date based on the closing trading price of an Inmet common share.Share award plan (SAP): at the time a share award is made, it is equity-settled by purchasing an equivalent number of Inmet common shares on the open market and we record this amount against contributed surplus. The share awards vest evenly over a period of four years.See note 14 for more information related to our share based compensation plans.Net income per shareWe calculate basic net income per share by dividing net income available to the common shareholders of Inmet Mining by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the year.We calculate diluted net income per share by taking into consideration the dilutive effects of stock options, DSUs and LTIP units. For stock options, we calculate dilution based upon the net number of common shares to be issued assuming in-the-money options are exercised and the proceeds are used to repurchase common shares at the average market price in the period. We also adjust the weighted average number of common shares by the number of DSUs outstanding and the number of LTIP units that are expected to vest. See note 19 for our calculation of basic and diluted net income per share.Employee future benefitsWe provide a defined contribution retirement benefit to employees in Canada.Employees in the other jurisdictions where we operate either have state pension arrangements or do not receive pension benefits.Certain employees take part in the defined contribution employee benefit plans. Our cost for these plans is the required contributions based on specified percentages of salaries we are required to make. For certain executives, our total contribution to the defined contribution component of the registered plan, including the annual cash payment in lieu of a supplementary pension plan, is equivalent to 9 to 12 percent of their salary and bonus.We expense contributions as they come due.4. Application of critical accounting judgements and estimatesPreparing our consolidated financial statements in conformity with IFRS requires us to make judgements, estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities and contingent liabilities at the date of the consolidated financial statements, and reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Our estimates and assumptions are based on our experience and other factors, including expectations of future events that we believe to be reasonable under the circumstances. We continuously evaluate these estimates, but actual outcomes could be different. The most critical judgements, estimates and assumptions are described below. Estimated mineral reservesOur mineral reserves are estimates of the amount of ore that can be economically and legally extracted from our mining properties. To calculate reserves, we use estimates and assumptions about a range of geological, technical and economic factors, including quantities, grades, production techniques, recovery rates, production and freight costs, commodity prices and exchange rates. Our reserves for all operations are estimated based on information compiled by or under the supervision of a qualified person as defined under National Instrument 43-101.Changes in our reserve estimates can affect:asset carrying values due to changes in estimated future cash flows and impairment analysis depreciation in the statement of earnings, when depreciation is based on units of production, or when the useful economic life of an asset changes asset retirement obligations where changes in estimated reserves affect expectations about the timing or cost of these activities. Provision for asset retirement obligationsOur closed mines, operations and joint ventures are subject to environmental laws and regulations in Canada, the United States and the other countries in which we operate. Our provision for asset retirement obligations is our best estimate of the present value of the future costs of mine closure, and involves a significant number of technical issues, estimates and assumptions, with many uncertainties, including changes to the relevant legal and regulatory framework, the magnitude of possible contamination and the timing and extent of the cost of required restoration activities. We will record any changes that arise prospectively, as follows:operating mines: we record changes in the balance sheet by adjusting the reclamation asset and provision, which affects both future depreciation and finance costs closed properties: we immediately recognize changes to estimated costs in the statement of earnings as finance costs. Impairment of assetsIf we believe an asset may be impaired, we calculate its recoverable amount as either its fair value less costs to sell, or its value in use (whichever is higher), following our Impairment of assets accounting policy described in note 3. When following this policy, we make estimates and assumptions about future production and sales volumes, future commodity prices, recoverable mineral reserves, discount rates, foreign exchange rates, future operating and capital costs. We may also make assumptions about our ability to obtain financing for a project or to recover costs by selling an asset. Actual outcomes could be different.Income taxesWe operate in a number of countries around the world and are subject to, and pay annual income taxes under the regimes in countries in which we operate. These tax regimes are determined under general corporate income tax laws in those countries. We file all required income tax returns and pay the taxes reasonably determined to be due. The tax laws in many countries can be complex and subject to interpretation. From time to time, there may be disagreement with the taxing authorities over our interpretation of the country's income tax rules. The final outcome of these disputes could be materially different from our estimated tax liabilities.We have significant Canadian tax benefits from capital losses, capital cost allowances and mining resource pools. We only recognize deferred tax assets arising from tax loss carry forwards, capital losses and temporary differences when it is probable that we will have enough taxable income in the future to recover them, therefore this is dependent on the generation of sufficient future taxable income. Our estimates of future taxable income include assumptions about interest rates, foreign currency exchange rates and other factors. Our future income tax asset could be reduced if future taxable income is reduced resulting in a corresponding charge to income tax expense in the statement of earnings. Plant constructionIn the construction of plant and equipment, we capitalize costs that can be directly attributed to bringing the asset into working condition for its intended use, including costs during a commissioning period, before the asset is able to operate at normal levels. We use several criteria to determine when an asset is able to operate at normal levels. These are complex, and depend on each development property's plan and its economic, political and environmental condition. Criteria can include:producing saleable material completing a reasonable period of testing of the plant and equipment in the mine, mill and/or plant achieving certain level of recoveries from the ore mined and processed sustaining ongoing production and reaching a certain level of production. Once these criteria are met, we stop capitalizing the costs related to the commissioning period, and begin to recognize production costs in the statement of earnings. 5. Standards issued but not yet effectiveThe IASB has issued the following new standards and amendments to existing standards. These changes in accounting are not yet effective at September 30, 2011, and could have an impact in future periods:IFRS 9Financial instrumentsIFRS 9 simplifies the current measurement model for financial instruments under IFRS and establishes two measurement categories for financial assets: amortized cost and fair value. Existing IAS 39 categories of loans and receivables, held-to-maturity investments, and available-for-sale financial assets will be eliminated. A financial asset can be measured at amortized cost when: • the objective of the business model is to hold assets in order to collect contractual cash flows, and • the contractual terms give rise, on contractual dates, to cash flows that are solely payments of principal and interest on principal outstanding. All other financial assets are measured at fair value.IFRS 10Consolidated financial statementsIFRS 10 provides a definition of control determined by the following three elements: power over an investee, exposure to variable returns from an investee, and the ability to use power to affect the reporting entity's returns. Power is not defined as the legal or contractual right to direct activities, but is based on the ability to direct activities, which requires the entity to exercise significant judgment. Accounting requirements and consolidation procedures remain unchanged from IAS 27.IFRS 11Joint arrangementsIFRS 11 introduces a principle-based approach where a party to a joint arrangement recognizes its own rights and obligations arising from the arrangement. Joint arrangements not structured through a separate vehicle are classified as a "joint operation" and the accounting for transactions is in accordance with the contractual arrangement. Joint arrangements structured through a separate vehicle must be evaluated based on their legal form and the terms of the contractual arrangement; these arrangements are classified as either a joint operation or a joint venture based on this evaluation. Joint ventures are accounted for using the equity method. The most significant impact of this standard is therefore the elimination of proportionate consolidation as a method to account for joint arrangements.IFRS 12Disclosure of interests in other entitiesIFRS 12 enhances, and replaces the disclosure requirements for subsidiaries, joint arrangements, associates and unconsolidated structured entities. The standard requires a reporting entity to disclose information that helps users assess the nature and financial effects of the reporting entity's relationship with other entities. Disclosure requirements include information that helps users in understanding the judgments and assumptions made by a reporting entity when deciding how to classify its involvement with another entity, understand the interest that non-controlling interests have in consolidated entities, and assess the nature of the risks associated with interests in other entitiesIFRS 13Fair value measurementIFRS 13 defines fair value, sets a framework for measuring fair value, and requires disclosures about fair value measurements. Generally, the standard does not introduce new requirements to measure assets or liabilities at fair value, change what is measured at fair value in IFRS, or address how to present changes in fair value, but rather consolidates guidance on fair value into a single standard and better clarifies measurement and disclosure objectivesIAS 19Employee benefitsThe IASB published amendments to IAS 19, the standard dealing with accounting for pensions and other post-retirement and post-employment benefits, most significantly: • Immediate recognition of all changes in a plan's funded status (i.e. removal of the corridor approach option for recognizing actuarial gains and losses) • streamlining the presentation of changes in assets and liabilities arising from defined benefit plans, including requiring re-measurements to be presented in other comprehensive income (OCI), thereby separating those changes from changes that many perceive to be the result of an entity's day-to-day operations • expanded disclosures about defined benefit plans, with an additional focus on describing the risks to which the plan sponsor is exposed because of the plan and the effect of the plan on the plan sponsor's future cash flowsThese standards and amendments are effective for financial periods beginning January 1, 2013, although early adoption is permitted. We are currently assessing the impact these changes in accounting will have on our consolidated financial statements.6. First time adoption of IFRSWe have adopted IFRS from January 1, 2011, as required for publicly accountable enterprises in Canada. Our transition date is January 1, 2010 and we have adjusted 2010 comparative information from what was previously reported under Canadian GAAP to conform to IFRS. Under IFRS 1 – First time adoption of International Financial Reporting Standards, we must apply IFRS retrospectively at the transition date, changing retained earnings to incorporate all adjustments to assets and liabilities as stated previously under Canadian GAAP, except where we apply any exemptions that are available. We have applied the following significant exemptions:we did not restate acquisitions we made before January 1, 2010 in accordance with IFRS 3 – Business combinationswe reset the cumulative translation gains and losses in accumulated other comprehensive income to nil at January 1, 2010 and made the corresponding adjustment to retained earnings we applied IFRS 2 – Share based payments only to equity settled share based payment awards we granted after November 7, 2002 and that had not vested by January 1, 2010 for certain mines, we used a transitional calculation to determine the property, plant and equipment associated with our provision for asset retirement obligations. Under this calculation, we measured the provision at the transition date and discounted to the date the liability first arose. The result became the initial asset value we applied depreciation to.

2010 and December 31, 2010: ReclassificationsWe reclassified several items to conform to IFRS. The following are the most significant:non-controlling interests are under a separate component of equity. Under Canadian GAAP, we reported these as a liability. current deferred income tax assets and liabilities are under long term assets and liabilities. Under IFRS, all deferred income taxes assets and liabilities must be classified as long term. asset retirement obligations are under provisions. We previously reported these as a separate long term liability. certain employee compensation obligations are under current and long term provisions. Under Canadian GAAP, we reported them in accounts payable if they were current obligations, or as other liabilities if they were long term obligations. Adjustments(i)Revenue recognition – at January 1, 2010 we increased accounts receivable by $25.8 million (September 30, 2010 - $33.3 million, December 31, 2010 - $27.5 million) and reduced inventory by $5.6 million (September 30, 2010 - $7.2 million, December 31, 2010 - $6.3 million). Under IFRS, we recognize revenue when all significant risks and rewards of ownership of our products are transferred to the purchaser. Under Canadian GAAP, title also had to legally transfer to the purchaser before revenue was recognized. For certain shipments at Çayeli, Pyhäsalmi and Ok Tedi, we transfer title when we receive the first provisional payment, which is later than the transfer point for risks and rewards of ownership. (ii)Reversal of impairment of assets – at January 1, 2010, we increased property plant and equipment by $51.9 million (September 30, 2010 - $44.8 million, December 31, 2010 - $41.1 million) to reverse an impairment charge we recognized for Çayeli in 1996. The increase is the IFRS carrying amount we would have calculated, net of depreciation, if we had not recognized the original impairment.Canadian GAAP did not allow for reversal of impairment charges after they were initially recognized. Under IFRS, we must reverse an impairment loss if there is a change in the estimates we used to determine the recoverable amount. In 1996, after Çayeli's first two years of operations, we recognized an impairment charge of $128 million against property, plant and equipment. At the time, zinc and copper recoveries were significantly lower than feasibility levels, and were continuing to deteriorate. The complex mineralogy of the Çayeli ore body, continuing poor metallurgical results and the possibility that no improvements may have been achievable were the main reasons for the impairment. After many initiatives and capital improvements, and many years of significantly improved production performance since that time, we concluded that the extensive uncertainties underlying the original impairment no longer apply, and that Çayeli's recoverable amount exceeded its carrying value on our transition to IFRS. (iii)Plant and equipment at Ok Tedi – at January 1, 2010, we increased property, plant and equipment by $14.5 million (September 30, 2010 - $16.0 million). For plant and equipment that was purchased after our initial proportionate consolidation of Ok Tedi, we used Ok Tedi's accumulated depreciation, which Ok Tedi has used historically under IFRS. (iv)Property, plant and equipment associated with asset retirement obligations – at January 1, 2010, we increased property, plant and equipment by $8.8 million (September 30, 2010 - $14.0 million, December 31, 2010 - $12.1 million). Under both IFRS and Canadian GAAP, we recognize a corresponding change in the provision for asset retirement obligations in the carrying value of the related property, plant and equipment and depreciate this amount prospectively. The amount of our asset retirement obligations under IFRS is different from the amount under Canadian GAAP as described in (vi) below, and therefore has an impact on our related assets. (v)Foreign exchange forward contract – at January 1, 2010, we increased property, plant and equipment by $13.4 million on our transition to IFRS (September 30, 2010 - $12.3 million, December 31, 2010 - $11.5 million). To fix the amount of euros under its credit facility upon conversion to a US dollar denominated loan, Las Cruces entered into a forward contract to exchange US $215 million for €171.1 million. In 2008, this derivative settled on a net basis with Las Cruces receiving cash of €32.6 million ($52.3 million). Under Canadian GAAP, we applied hedge accounting for this contract. While the credit facility was outstanding, Las Cruces capitalized the related interest under its credit facility as a cost of deferred development. We amortized the gain in property, plant and equipment, as a reduction of this capitalized interest. Under IFRS, this instrument does not qualify as a hedge for accounting purposes, and we reclassified the amount we had recognized against property, plant and equipment to retained earnings.(vi)Provision for asset retirement obligations – at January 1, 2010, we increased our provision for asset retirement obligations by $39.8 million (September 30, 2010 - $37.6 million, December 31, 2010 - $43.6 million). Under IFRS, we measure asset retirement obligations using a risk free interest rate, and revalue for changes in market risk free interest rates. Under Canadian GAAP, we used a credit adjusted risk free interest rate and were not required to remeasure for changes in market rates. (vii)Deferred income taxes – translation of non-monetary items – at January 1, 2010, we increased deferred income tax assets by $3.3 million (September 30, 2010 - $2.0 million, December 31, 2010 - $1.0 million). Under IFRS, when an entity's taxes are denominated in a currency that is not its functional currency (Çayeli and Ok Tedi), we are required to recognize deferred income taxes and liabilities related to the foreign exchange gains and losses for foreign non-monetary assets and liabilities that are re-measured into the functional currency, using historical foreign exchange rates. This was not allowed under Canadian GAAP.(viii)Deferred income taxes – as a result of the tax effect of changes to our opening balances under IFRS, we decreased deferred income tax assets by $12.2 million at January 1, 2010 (September 30, 2010 - $11.4 million, December 31, 2010 - $6.4 million) and increased deferred income tax liabilities by $10.7 million (September 30, 2010 - $11.2 million, December 31, 2010 - decrease of $65.9 million).(ix)Cumulative translation adjustment – at January 1, 2010, we reset the cumulative translation gains and losses in accumulated other comprehensive income to nil, and recognized a corresponding decrease of $61.2 million in retained earnings, using an election under IFRS 1. (x)Acquisition of non-controlling interest in Las Cruces – at December 31, 2010, we decreased inventory by $6.8 million, decreased property, plant and equipment by $247.0 million, decreased goodwill by $76.4 million and increased share capital by $73.9 million. Under Canadian GAAP, companies that acquire an additional interest in an entity they already control must account for it as a step acquisition. Under IFRS, acquiring a non-controlling interest is not considered a business combination, and is instead accounted for as an equity transaction. Under IFRS, we have accounted for our acquisition of the remaining 30 percent interest in Las Cruces which closed in December 2010, as an equity transaction, because we already controlled it.(xi)Assets and liabilities held for sale for Ok Tedi - on January 29, 2011, Ok Tedi Mining Limited repurchased our 18 percent equity interest in Ok Tedi for US $335 million, and we classified it as held for sale at December 31, 2010 (consistent to our Canadian GAAP presentation). Our share of Ok Tedi's assets and liabilities classified as held for sale under IFRS were $36.8 million and $9.4 million higher respectively than they were under Canadian GAAP because of the adjustments outlined above.(xii)Equity reconciliation – The table below reconciles total equity under Canadian GAAP to total equity under IFRS, and illustrates the after-tax effect of each of the most significant adjustments had on equity.NotesJanuary 1, 2010September 30, 2010December 31, 2010Canadian GAAP equity$2,238,145$2,392,961$2,758,484IFRS adjustments:Reclassification of non-controlling interest to equity78,00573,597-Revenue recognitioni14,21018,75330,023Reversal of impairment of assets – Çayeliii42,39536,58934,005Plant and equipment - Ok Tediiii10,18411,19211,179Property, plant and equipment associated with asset retirement obligationsiv8,30412,98912,175Foreign exchange forward contract – Las Crucesv9,3868,6068,034Provision for asset retirement obligationsvi(38,349)(36,276)(41,310)Deferred income taxesvii3,4813,7802,870Acquisition of the non-controlling interest in Las Crucesx--(254,056)Other(4,349)(4,705)(6,865)IFRS equity$2,361,412$2,517,486$2,554,539The schedule below reconciles our Canadian GAAP and IFRS net income for the three months ended September 30, 2010.

Notes to the reconciliation of the statement of earnings for three and nine months ended September 30, 2010 and the year ended December 31, 2010:ReclassificationsWhen we adopted IFRS, we reclassified accretion of asset retirement obligations and capital lease obligations to finance costs. We recognized it as part of cost of sales under Canadian GAAP. Ok TediIn January 2011, we sold our 18 percent equity interest in Ok Tedi. As the operations and cash flows for Ok Tedi have been eliminated as a result of this disposal and we have no continuing involvement with this operation, we have presented our proportionately consolidated results from Ok Tedi as discontinued operations retroactively. The sale of our investment in Ok Tedi did not qualify for treatment as discontinued operations under Canadian GAAP. This change affects our entire income statement so we have disclosed it separately.Adjustments(i)Revenue – for the three months ended September 30, 2010 we increased revenue by $1.0 million (nine months ended September 30, 2010 - $8.4 million, year ended December 31, 2010 - $37.1 million) and made associated adjustments to smelter processing charges and freight, cost of sales and depreciation.Under IFRS, we recognize revenue when all significant risks and rewards of ownership of our products are transferred to the purchaser. Under Canadian GAAP, title also had to legally transfer to the purchaser before revenue was recognized. For certain shipments at Çayeli, Pyhäsalmi and Ok Tedi, we transfer title when we receive the first provisional payment, which is later than the transfer point for risks and rewards of ownership.(ii)Foreign exchange gains and losses – for the three months ended September 30, 2010, we reversed foreign exchange losses recognized under Canadian GAAP, which increased investment and other income by $nil million (nine months ended September 30, 2010 - $22.7 million, year ended December 31, 2010 - $22.7 million).Under IFRS, only dividends that represent a return on capital invested in a foreign operation require recognition of previously deferred foreign exchange gains or losses. Under Canadian GAAP, dividends, including those related to the accumulation of earnings are considered a return on investment, and we recognized the deferred foreign exchange gains or losses on these amounts in investment and other income. (iii)Depreciation – we increased property, plant and equipment relating to the reversal of an impairment charge recognized for Çayeli, and made an associated increase in depreciation of $2.1 million for the three months ended September 30, 2010 (nine months ended September 30, 2010 - $6.1 million, year ended December 31, 2010 - $7.9 million). (iv)Depreciation of property, plant and equipment associated with asset retirement obligations – we recognized a $0.1 million increase in depreciation for the three months ended September 30, 2010 (nine months ended September 30, 2010 - $6.5 million decrease, year ended December 31, 2010 - $6.3 million decrease).Under both IFRS and Canadian GAAP, we recognize a corresponding change in the provision for asset retirement obligations in the carrying value of the related property, plant and equipment and depreciate this amount prospectively. The amount of our asset retirement obligations under IFRS is different from the amount under Canadian GAAP, and therefore has an impact on our related assets and depreciation expense. (v)Provision for asset retirement obligations – we increased cost of sales by $6.5 million for the year ended December 31, 2010 to increase our asset retirement obligations at our closed properties as a result of changes in discount rates. Under IFRS, we measure asset retirement obligations using a risk free interest rate, and revalue for changes in market risk free interest rates. Under Canadian GAAP, we used a credit adjusted risk free interest rate and were not required to remeasure for changes in market rates.(vi)Deferred income taxes – as a result of the tax effect of changes recognized in our income statement under IFRS, we decreased income tax expense by $2.8 million for the three months ended September 30, 2010 (nine months ended September 30, 2010 - $0.5 million increase, year ended December 31, 2010 - $4.8 million increase) The schedule below reconciles our Canadian GAAP and IFRS comprehensive income for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2010 and the year ended December 31, 2010. The Canadian GAAP statement of comprehensive income is presented in an IFRS format.Notesthree months ended September 30, 2010nine months ended September 30, 2010year ended December 31, 2010Comprehensive income reported under Canadian GAAP$133,509 $ 158,975$181,643Total adjustments to net income5,55930,29132,683Adjustments to other comprehensive income (loss):Currency translation adjustmentsi, ii3,169(29,608)(28,167)Comprehensive income under IFRS$142,237$159,658$186,159Notes to the reconciliation of the statement of comprehensive income for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2010 and the year ended December 31, 2010Adjustments(i)Currency translation adjustments – for the three months ended September 30, 2010, we reversed foreign exchange losses previously recognized in the statement of earnings under Canadian GAAP, which decreased other comprehensive income by $nil million (nine months ended September 30, 2010 - $22.7 million, year ended December 31, 2010 - $22.7 million).Under IFRS, only dividends that represent a return on capital invested in a foreign operation require recognition of previously deferred foreign exchange gains or losses. Under Canadian GAAP, dividends, including those related to the accumulation of earnings and repayment of intercompany debt, are considered a return on investment, and we recognized the deferred foreign exchange gains or losses on these amounts in investment and other income. (ii)Currency translation adjustments - as a result of the currency translation impact of recognizing changes to our balance sheet under IFRS, we increased other comprehensive income by $3.1 million for the three months ended September 30, 2010 (nine months ended September 30, 2010- $6.9 million, year ended December 31, 2010 - $5.5 million). Cash flow statementThe IFRS transition adjustments above did not have an impact on our cash and short-term investments. Differences in our cash flow statements between Canadian GAAP and IFRS are the result of non-cash adjustments to items in the statements of earnings outlined above and the presentation of Ok Tedi cash flows as discontinued operations (note 10). 7.Cash and short-term investments September 30, 2011December 31, 2010January 1, 2010Cash and cash equivalents:Liquidity funds$479,949$194,603$205,190Term deposits10,16352,99140,140Overnight deposits47,1904,31954,435Bankers acceptances--92,200Money market funds40,11640,04819,951Corporate10,074--Bank deposits61,34327,16895,001Provincial short-term notes91,458--740,293319,129506,917Short-term investments:Corporate63,179-26,996Term deposits-7,296-Provincial short term notes271,479--Bankers acceptances15,051--349,7097,29626,996Total cash and short-term instruments$1,090,002$326,425$533,9138.Restricted cash September 30, 2011December 31, 2010January 1, 2010Collateralized cash for letter of credit facility – Inmet Mining$16,795$16,906$16,492In trust for Ok Tedi reclamation--26,365Collateralized cash for letters of credit – Las Cruces57,49752,13872,008Collateralized cash for Pyhäsalmi reclamation1,7201,6321,85476,01270,676116,719Less current portion:Collateralized cash for letters of credit – Las Cruces(777)(617)(15,130)$75,235$70,059$101,5899.Held to maturity investments Year to date, we purchased US $284 million of US Treasury bonds with credit ratings of AA. The bonds mature between March 2012 and January 2016 and have a weighted average annual yield to maturity of 1.2 percent. Additionally, we purchased Canadian government and corporate bonds for $15 million with credit ratings of AA, maturity between June 2014 and March 2016 and an annual yield to maturity of 1.6 percent. $53 million of bonds have matured this year.We have designated these bonds as held to maturity, measuring them initially at fair value and subsequently at amortized cost.10.Sale of our interest in Ok Tedi On January 29, 2011, Ok Tedi Mining Limited repurchased our 18 percent equity interest in Ok Tedi for US $335 million. Our interest in Ok Tedi met the criteria of an asset held for sale, so we presented our share of the results of operations of Ok Tedi as discontinued operations in the consolidated statements of earnings and the consolidated statements of cash flow retroactively. In 2011, after-tax income of $83 million from this discontinued operation includes net earnings of $17 million in January, before the sale, and a gain on sale of $66 million net of withholding taxes. Papua New Guinea withholding taxes of $28 million were paid on the sale and no Canadian taxes were payable, but we have reduced our tax-effected Canadian tax loss pools by about $2 million. The following tables provide a breakdown of our share of the earnings and cash flows at Ok Tedi for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2010 and 2011.Statements of earnings three months ended September 30nine months ended September 302011201020112010Gross sales$-$88,402$44,865$240,047Smelter processing charges and freight-(8,811)(4,051)(26,228)Cost of sales (excluding depreciation)-(22,133)(12,116)(72,601)Depreciation-(7,039)(2,272)(20,564)-50,41926,426120,654Investment and other income-103(80)13Finance costs-(215)(33)(686)Income tax expense-(16,738)(9,670)(43,219)-33,56916,64376,762Gain on sale of our interest--79,029-Income tax expense on sale of our interest--(12,233)-Net income from discontinued operation$-$33,569$83,439$76,762Statements of cash flow three months ended September 30nine months ended September 302011201020112010Cash provided by operating activitiesBefore net change in non-cash working capital$-$40,245$-$92,614Net change in non-cash working capital-(17,694)-16,984-22,551-109,598Cash provided by (used in) investing activitiesCash proceeds on sale, net of withholding tax--306,982-Purchase of property, plant and equipment-(3,458)-(11,863)-(3,458)306,982(11,863)Cash used in financing activities-(643)-(1,288)Foreign exchange change on cash held in foreign currency-(1,884)-(1,491)Net cash from discontinued operation$-$16,566$306,982$94,95611.Accounts payable and accrued liabilitiesSeptember 30, 2011December 31, 2010January 1, 2010Accounts payable and accrued liabilities$112,007$94,792$106,701Amounts payable related to metal sales23,219592103Income taxes payable33,41140,96163,720$168,637$136,345$170,52412.Provisions The table below shows the significant components of our provisions.September 30, 2011December 31, 2010January 1, 2010Asset retirement obligations$179,273$168,589$198,291Employee benefits and other12,72411,47815,556191,997180,067213,847Less current portion:Asset retirement obligations(16,847)(16,417)(13,500)Employee benefits and other(2,163)(1,251)(3,917)(19,010)(17,668)(17,417)$172,987$162,399$196,43013.Common share issuance On May 17, 2011, Temasek Holdings (Private) Ltd. exchanged its subscriptions receipts for 7.78 million Inmet common shares and we received cash of $500 million, plus accrued interest on funds in escrow during the subscription period.14.Stock-based compensation During the second quarter, a number of changes were made to equity-based compensation plans following a review of senior management compensation: Stock option planOn June 27, 2011, shareholders approved a share option plan (SOP) for senior management, enabling them to purchase Inmet common shares, with a reserve of 2.8 million common shares. The exercise price is determined by the Board at the time the option is granted, and may not be less than the volume weighted average price of Inmet common shares for the five preceding trading days (5 day VWAP). In the absence of specific vesting conditions determined by the Board at the grant date, each grant will vest 25 percent per year for four years, with each amount vesting on the anniversary of the grant date (graded vesting).An initial grant of 380,000 options was made to senior management on May 10, 2011, with an exercise price of $65.11, graded vesting and an expiry date of May 10, 2018. We calculated the compensation expense for these options using the Black Scholes valuation model assuming the following weighted average parameters, resulting in a weighted average fair value per option of $28.86 per option: 5 year expected life, 49 percent expected volatility, expected dividend rate of 0.3 percent annually and a risk free interest rate of 2 percent.Performance share unit planEffective May 10, 2011, we adopted a performance share unit plan (PSUP) for senior management. The Board grants performance share units (PSUs) at its sole discretion with PSU grants generally being equal in value to a percentage of an executive's annual base salary. The vesting period for the PSUs is the three year period commencing on January 1 of the year in which a PSU grant is made and ending on November 25th of the second year following the year in which the grant is made. Each PSU is settled in cash based on the 5 day VWAP prior to November 25 of the second year following the year of the grant.We used a Monte Carlo simulation model to calculate the compensation expense for the PSUs assuming no forfeitures, 3 year historical average volatilities and a risk free interest rate of 1.9%. Long-term incentive planOn May 10, 2011, the LTIP units associated with Las Cruces were redeemed with a vesting performance factor of 60 percent, based on the board's assessment of senior management performance for the project. The board decided to redeem the LTIP units for $3.4 million in cash based on the 5 day VWAP of $65.11. Additionally, the LTIP has been replaced by the SOP and PSUP described above. The 312,000 LTIP units associated with Cobre Panama remain in place and will be redeemed in accordance with the LTIP provisions. However, no additional LTIP units will be granted as a result of the replacement of the plan. Share award planThe share award plan has been terminated for the 2011 year onwards in conjunction with the establishment of the SOP and PSUP. Shares already awarded under the plan will continue to vest according to the original vesting period and no additional shares will be awarded.In 2011, we recognized the following share-based compensation expense in general and administration:three months ended September 30nine months ended September 302011201020112010Stock option plan$1,428$-$2,380$-Performance share unit plan116-305-Long-term incentive plan--759382Deferred share unit plan224237798743Share award plan168333470990$1,936$570$4,713$2,11515.Accumulated other comprehensive income (loss)Accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) includes:September 30, 2011December 31, 2010January 1, 2010Unrealized losses on gold forward sales contracts (net of tax of nil) (December 31, 2010 - $2,427, January 1, 2010 - $2,015)$-$(5,661)$(4,701)Unrealized gains (losses) on investments (net of tax of $94) (December 31, 2010 - $78, January 1, 2010 - $4,788))(3,434)(452)23,794Currency translation adjustment(53,612)(179,104)-Accumulated other comprehensive income (loss)$(57,046)$(185,217)$19,093Currency translation adjustmentsThe table below is breakdown of our currency translation adjustments.September 30, 2011December 31, 2010January 1, 2010Pyhäsalmi (euro functional currency)$(14,549)$(24,354)$-Las Cruces (euro functional currency)(40,274)(93,427)-Çayeli (US dollar functional currency)(5,443)(20,908)-Cobre Panama (US dollar functional currency)6,654(29,701)-Ok Tedi (US dollar functional currency)-(10,714)-$(53,612)$(179,104)$-The Canadian dollar to US dollar exchange rate was $1.05 at September 30, 2011, $0.99 at December 31, 2010 and $1.05 at January 1, 2010.
