Goldcorp Reports 2012 Second Quarter Results

Thursday, July 26, 2012

Goldcorp Reports 2012 Second Quarter Results08:00 EDT Thursday, July 26, 2012 Toronto Stock Exchange: G                                                                    New York Stock Exchange: GG (All Amounts in $US unless stated otherwise) VANCOUVER, July 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - GOLDCORP INC. (TSX: G) (NYSE: GG) today reported adjusted net earnings1 in the quarter of $332 million, or $0.41 per share, compared to $413 million, or $0.52 per share, in the second quarter of 2011.  Reported net earnings were $268 million compared to $489 million in the second quarter of 2011.  Operating cash flow before working capital changes2 was $520 million.  On July 10, 2012, the Company released second quarter gold production and estimated cash costs in addition to updated production and cash cost guidance for 2012. Second Quarter 2012 Highlights Gold production totaled 578,600 ounces. Revenues totaled $1.1 billion on gold sales of 532,000 ounces. Operating cash flow before working capital changes totaled $520 million or $0.64 per share. Adjusted net earnings were $332 million or $0.41 per share. Cash costs3 totaled $370 per ounce on a by-product basis and $619 per ounce on a co-product basis. Dividends paid amounted to $110 million. Quarter-end cash balance of $1.2 billion; net cash position of $359 million4. Ontario Superior Court ruling confirms Goldcorp ownership of El Morro copper-gold project. "The previously-announced production shortfall at Red Lake negatively impacted our results in the second quarter," said Chuck Jeannes, Goldcorp President and Chief Executive Officer. "Peñasquito had been delivering a good second quarter until encountering water availability issues that limited plant throughput in June.  Operations at the rest of the mine portfolio remained solid, with particular strength at Porcupine and Los Filos. "The performance issues at Red Lake and Peñasquito will remain our highest priority in the second half of 2012.  The Red Lake team is advancing the final phase of de-stressing work, which is expected to lead to improved gold production in the second half of the year.  Consistent with our commitment to safety, our production expectations at Red Lake beyond 2012 will reflect a cautious approach to addressing potential seismicity.  At Peñasquito, both the processing plant and the ore body continue to perform well, and the focus is on bringing new water wells into production beginning in November of this year.  As the mine receives additional water from these wells, plant throughput is expected to increase, resulting in increased production levels. "We continued to make good progress on our pipeline of new gold projects.  At Pueblo Viejo, the production of first gold is imminent, which will establish a new stream of strong cash flow for years to come.  Our team at Cerro Negro has done a great job of managing the importation of equipment into Argentina given the new regulations, and advancing mine construction toward first production in late 2013.  Progress at the Éléonore project has been excellent, including the commencement of underground drilling from the exploration shaft three months ahead of schedule.  The Cochenour project team is completing final work on an updated study to guide the next phase of its development as an important source of long-term supplemental production at Red Lake.  We were also pleased to receive a positive decision in the El Morro litigation.  Ongoing engineering work and project optimization studies will continue to advance on this strategically important asset." Financial Review Gold sales in the second quarter were 532,000 ounces on production of 578,600 ounces.  This compares to sales of 606,400 ounces on production of 597,100 ounces in the second quarter of 2011. Silver production totaled 8.2 million ounces compared to silver production of 6.5 million ounces in the prior year's second quarter.  Total cash costs were $370 per ounce of gold on a by-product basis and $619 per ounce on a co-product basis.  Cash costs were impacted by the temporary suspension of shipments at Alumbrera in May and June of 2012 due to the new export repatriation requirement imposed by the government of Argentina. Net earnings in the quarter were $268 million compared to $489 million in the second quarter of 2011. Adjusted net earnings in the second quarter totaled $332 million, or $0.41 per share, compared to $413 million or $0.52 per share, in the second quarter of 2011.  Adjusted net earnings in the second quarter of 2012 primarily exclude the losses from the foreign exchange translation of deferred income tax liabilities; mark-to-market gains on the conversion feature of convertible senior notes and impairment charges related to certain of its equity investments and investments in associates; but include the impact of non-cash stock-based compensation expenses which amounted to approximately $22 million or $0.03 per share for the quarter.  Operating cash flow before changes in working capital was $520 million compared to $717 million in last year's second quarter.  An average realized gold price of $1,596 per ounce for the quarter and total cash costs of $370 per ounce resulted in a margin5 of $1,226 per ounce of gold sold.  Mexico Gold and silver production at Peñasquito in the second quarter totaled 103,800 ounces and 6,570,700 ounces respectively.  Lead production was 45.9 million pounds and zinc production was 95.0 million pounds.  Strong by-product production contributed to total cash costs of negative $425 per ounce of gold. Production in the second quarter was affected by lower mill throughput a result of an inadequate water supply in the month of June. Prolonged drought conditions in the region contributed to lower-than-expected water recharge in the well field as well as lower-than-expected water production from the accelerated pit dewatering program. This condition is also expected to affect plant throughput in the second half of 2012. The Company holds permits for sufficient quantities of water and is currently working to drill additional wells to increase water production.  Concurrently, work is also underway to increase water use efficiency site wide. Gold production at Los Filos in the second quarter was 85,200 ounces at a total cash cost of $535 per ounce.  Construction of the next phase of the Los Filos heap leach pad facility was completed during the second quarter of 2012 as planned. The 2012 exploration program has continued to follow up on 2011 success through exploring the Los Filos pit towards the 4P south area, and the El Bermejal pit towards the northwest. Canada At Red Lake in Ontario, second quarter gold production was 104,000 ounces at a total cash cost of $568 per ounce.  Production continued to be affected by slower-than-expected de-stressing activity in the High Grade Zone to address increased seismicity. Lower grades than anticipated in the Footwall Zone also impacted production in the second quarter.  High Grade Zone de-stress work was successfully completed on the 41 level late in the quarter and completion of de-stress work at the 45 level is expected to be completed later in the third quarter of 2012.  Over the balance of 2012, the Company will continue to evaluate the impact on Red Lake's long-term production profile of timing issues in accessing High Grade Zone reserves as well as continued grade variability in the Footwall Zone.  Until further study of these issues has advanced, the range of production expectations for Red Lake beyond the current year should reflect production similar to the range provided for 2012 of between 460,000 and 510,000 ounces. During the second quarter of 2012, successful drilling results continued from Red Lake's 4199 exploration ramp.  Numerous intercepts have confirmed the extension of consistent high grade mineralization between levels 52 and 55. Drilling is also indicating the presence of high grade intercepts deeper at the 57 level. Additionally, new drill results in an unexplored area west of the High Grade Zone have outlined a potential new zone above the 52 level, which remains open vertically and to the west.  This area will be a focus of drilling over the remainder of the year as it has the potential to increase mining flexibility due to proximity to existing infrastructure. At Porcupine in Ontario, gold production during the second quarter increased 20% over the second quarter of 2011 to 74,900 ounces at a total cash cost of $674 per ounce, driven by higher grades and recoveries.  The Hoyle Pond Deep project continued to advance to access both depth extensions of current ore bodies and newly-discovered zones and to enhance operational flexibility and efficiencies throughout the Hoyle Pond operation. Full face shaft sinking is planned to commence during the third quarter of 2012. At the Hollinger open pit project, development has focused on construction of the haul road between the Hollinger site and the Dome mill. The first of 2 shovels to operate in the open pit has been commissioned. Pending receipt of final permits, the mine is expected to begin production in the fourth quarter of 2012, providing supplementary gold production and the remediation of historical subsidence areas. Underground exploration at Hoyle Pond in the second quarter of 2012 continued to return strong results. Three diamond drill rigs were also dedicated to the expansion and delineation of the TVZ Bulk Zone. Surface exploration continued to assess potential targets located within a few kilometres of the Hoyle Pond deposit, while one diamond drill rig continued to probe a historically under-explored area located near the Dome Mine. Gold production at Musselwhite during the second quarter totaled 56,500 ounces at a total cash cost of $819 per ounce.  Exploration in the second quarter of 2012 continued to focus on the northern extension of the Lynx Zone from surface and underground, together with extensions of the PQ Deeps and T-Antiform from underground and the completion of the first underground set of drill holes on the West Limb target. Surface drilling successfully intersected the Lynx Zone at a distance of 600 metres north of the current development, while drilling on the North Shore demonstrated the continuity of mineralization a distance of 1.5 kilometres north of the current development. Drilling on the West Limb target also continued to return positive results, with numerous mineralised shear zones intersected in the drill holes. Positive results were also encountered from underground drilling on the PQ Deeps north of the 2011 resource boundary. Guatemala At Marlin, gold and silver production decreased 28% and 15% from the second quarter 2011, to a total of 56,700 ounces and 1,613,400 ounces respectively.  Cash costs totaled $20 per ounce.  The decreases in gold and silver production are consistent with the mine plan following completion of open pit mining operations in the Marlin pit at the end of 2011. Following the national government's establishment of a payment protocol, Goldcorp delivered the first voluntary royalty payments to the national and municipal governments. Argentina At Alumbrera, gold and copper production totaled 36,700 ounces and 31.5 million pounds respectively.  Early in the quarter, a new resolution from the Argentinian Ministry of Economy and Public Finance was issued that reduced the time permitted to repatriate export net proceeds from 180 days to 15 days.  As a result, Alumbrera temporarily suspended shipments while management reviewed the potential impact of the new resolution.  On July 17, 2012, a revised resolution was issued extending the 15 day limit to 180 days enabling Alumbrera to resume shipments during the second half of 2012. Advancing the Project Pipeline At the Pueblo Viejo project in the Dominican Republic, initial production is expected in August 2012. Construction has been essentially completed on schedule. At the end of the second quarter, more than 16 million tonnes of ore were stockpiled; representing approximately 1.9 million contained gold ounces. Construction of the tailings facility progressed during the second quarter of 2012 and advanced to in excess of 175 metres versus a target elevation of 183 metres. The mine is now successfully interconnected to the national grid and has also secured backup supplemental onsite power. Major systems commissioned include the water supply system; main switch yard and harmonic filters; ore and limestone crushing and grinding; the first two autoclaves, both of which underwent heat-up and acid curing; the oxygen plant, with the first of two trains in production; and the first lime kiln. Goldcorp's share of production in 2012 is expected to be approximately 68,000 to 85,000 ounces. As part of a longer-term, optimized power solution for Pueblo Viejo, the project team is advancing a plan to construct a dual fuel power plant at an estimated incremental cost of approximately $300 million on a 100% basis, or an additional $120 million on Goldcorp's share, of which 92% is committed.  The new plant is expected to provide lower cost, long-term power to the project. At the Cerro Negro project in Argentina, activities at site continued to advance the project in the overall categories of infrastructure and construction, mine development and exploration. The development plan calls for concurrent mining from multiple veins, with initial mining to take place in the Eureka, Mariana Central and Mariana Norte veins.  Total underground ramp development for the Eureka vein advanced to 1,812 metres of the total 3,900 metres planned.  Portions of the vein were excavated as part of the development and an ore stockpile of an estimated 12,010 tonnes at an expected grade of 10.32 g/t gold and 213 g/t silver has been established on the surface.  Work on the ramps at Mariana Central and Mariana Norte commenced and active development is underway.  Engineering, Procurement and Construction Management was 36% complete at the end of the second quarter of 2012. The Company is subject to import restrictions enacted in Argentina during the first quarter with respect to equipment and materials required for the construction of the Cerro Negro project.  Approximately 80% of all equipment and materials required for full production have now been imported or secured within Argentina.  Initial gold production is expected in late 2013. An aggressive exploration program continued in the second quarter, with eight surface diamond drill rigs completing 145 holes. A major component of the exploration activities is the in-fill drilling and expansion of veins and related recent discoveries at the Mariana Central, Mariana Norte, and San Marcos complexes. In addition, the condemnation drilling was completed at the processing plant and tailings dam locations. Regional exploration activities outside of the core Cerro Negro vein areas is expected to ramp up over the remainder of 2012. At the Éléonore project in Quebec, engineering progress is on schedule to support construction in the third quarter of 2012 and major equipment and long-lead items have been ordered. Foundations for the production shaft have been completed and structural steel erection activities have commenced. Full face shaft sinking is expected in December 2012. This work will be done in parallel with the construction of the head frame under an engineered bulk head.  The 120kV substation was energized on schedule in July. Underground exploration drilling from the Gaumond exploration shaft commenced at the end of the second quarter of 2012, three months ahead of schedule. The Gaumond shaft reached a depth of 701 metres, representing 97% completion of the shaft's vertical depth. Commissioning of hoisting and shaft facilities are expected to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2012, which will enable the commencement of lateral development from the 650 metre level.  The exploration ramp has now advanced 1,500 metres in length and definition drilling is expected to take place from the ramp starting in July 2012. At the Cochenour project in Ontario, widening of the historical Cochenour shaft continued to advance, with 108 metres completed of a total depth of 342 metres.  The Cochenour-Red Lake haulage drift that will transport ore from Cochenour to existing Red Lake processing facilities advanced to 51% of completion.  Exploration drilling from the haulage drift is continuing with two drills in operation.  Diamond drilling with three drills at surface is underway to define the top portion of the Bruce Channel deposit and additional resources at Cochenour. Strong progress continued at Camino Rojo, an advanced-stage district project near Peñasquito.  An internal feasibility study testing the potential of a stand-alone oxide heap leach operation is scheduled to be completed in the third quarter of 2012. Additional drilling has demonstrated that sulphide mineralization extends at depth for at least 550 metres west of the Represa resource. At Noche Buena, another advanced-stage district project near Peñasquito, the focus in the second quarter remained on completion of the geologic model and an updated feasibility study is in progress for completion in the third quarter of 2012. At the El Morro project in Chile, a lawsuit filed by Barrick was dismissed by the Ontario Superior Court on June 26, 2012 confirming Goldcorp's position that the acquisition of the project was completely proper and consistent with the relevant agreements.  The project has been suspended since April 30, 2012 pending the correction by the Chilean environmental permitting authority (the Servicio de Evaluación Ambiental or SEA) of certain deficiencies specifically identified by a decision of the Antofogasta Court of Appeals. On June 22, 2012, the SEA initiated the administrative process to address the issues identified by the Court.  The Company continues to work with the Chilean authorities and local communities to correct the deficiencies. 2012 Guidance In light of reduced first half production at Red Lake and lower second half production expectations at Peñasquito, the Company updated its 2012 production and cash cost guidance on July 10, 2012.  Gold production guidance has been revised to between 2.35 and 2.45 million ounces compared to previous guidance of 2.6 million ounces.   Due to the lower expected production, total cash cost guidance has also been revised, to $310 to $340 per ounce of gold on a by-product basis and $625 to $650 per ounce on a co-product basis.  This compares to previous guidance of $250 to $275 per ounce on a by-product basis and $550 to $600 per ounce on a co-product basis.   Production of by-product metals for 2012 is forecast at approximately 30 - 31 million ounces of silver compared to previous guidance of 34 million ounces; and 310 - 325 million pounds of zinc and 155 - 160 million pounds of lead compared to previous guidance of 400 million pounds and 180 million pounds respectively.  Production guidance for copper remains unchanged at 110 million pounds. Capital expenditure guidance has increased from $2.6 to $2.7 billion to recognize the impact of the timing of expenditures at Pueblo Viejo that were planned in 2011 but occurred in 2012.  The capital expenditures are allocated approximately 60% to projects and 40% to operations.  Driven by continued exploration success at Red Lake, Cerro Negro and Camino Rojo the Company has increased exploration expenditures to $226 million compared to previous guidance of $200 million.  Approximately one third of the exploration expenditures will be expensed.  The overall effective tax rate for 2012 is expected to be 28% compared to prior guidance of 30%. In conjunction with the Company's annual planning and budgeting process, and in view of industry-wide capital cost escalation, the Company is currently updating project costs and will provide updated cost information early in 2013. Corporate Responsibility, Safety & Health The development team at Éléonore was awarded the F.J O'Connell trophy by the Quebec Mining Association, recognizing the project's superior safety performance in 2011.  In May 2012, Goldcorp published its 2011 Sustainability Report.  This is the fifth year that Goldcorp has reported against the key performance indicators set out by the internationally recognized Global Reporting Initiative (GRI).  The 2012 report can be viewed online at http://goldcorp.com/Responsible-Mining/default.aspx.
