Goldcorp achieves record revenues in the third quarter

Thursday, October 25, 2012

Goldcorp achieves record revenues in the third quarter08:00 EDT Thursday, October 25, 2012 (All Amounts in $US unless stated otherwise) Toronto Stock Exchange: G                                                                    New York Stock Exchange: GG VANCOUVER, Oct. 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - GOLDCORP INC. (TSX: G) (NYSE: GG) today reported record quarterly revenues of $1.5 billion, generating adjusted net earnings1 of $441 million, or $0.54 per share, compared to $450 million, or $0.56 per share, in the third quarter of 2011.  Reported net earnings were $498 million compared to $336 million in the third quarter of 2011.  Operating cash flow before working capital changes2 was $687 million. Third Quarter 2012 Highlights Gold production totaled 592,500 ounces, with gold sales of 617,800 ounces. Cash costs3 totaled $220 per ounce on a by-product basis and $660 per ounce on a co-product basis. Operating cash flow before working capital changes totaled $687 million or $0.85 per share. Adjusted net earnings were $441 million, or $0.54 per share. Dividends paid amounted to $109 million. Quarter-end cash balance of $894 million; net cash position of $32 million4. First gold poured at Pueblo Viejo. Added to the Dow Jones Sustainability Index North America. "Operating improvements at Red Lake and Peñasquito contributed to strong financial results in the third quarter," said Chuck Jeannes, Goldcorp President and Chief Executive Officer. "Our priority is on continuing work to maximize the strong potential at our two largest operations.   At Red Lake, access to several stopes in the High Grade Zone following the completion of de-stressing work is leading to stronger gold production in the second half of the year while an important new discovery adjacent to the High Grade Zone supports the potential for greater future production flexibility at this prolific mine.  At Peñasquito, water availability remains sufficient to achieve 2012 guidance, and a study is underway to develop a long-term water strategy to meet the needs of both Peñasquito and emerging development opportunities in the Peñasquito district. "Goldcorp's pipeline of high quality gold projects comprises the leading growth profile in the sector, and we are pleased that the first of those new growth projects, Pueblo Viejo in the Dominican Republic, achieved first gold production during the third quarter.   In Argentina, the Cerro Negro project is advancing steadily towards first gold production in late 2013.  All major mechanical equipment to be imported is now at the site or in-country, and development of the first three veins is progressing well.  At the Éléonore project in Quebec a milestone was reached with the completion of the Gaumond exploration shaft excavation, and at Cochenour in Red Lake, a new study including an updated development plan will be completed during the fourth quarter. Both Éléonore and Cochenour remain on track for first gold production in late 2014.  The low capital cost per ounce of new gold production for these four new projects creates the opportunity for very strong financial returns for our shareholders." Financial Review Gold sales in the third quarter were 617,800 ounces on production of 592,500 ounces.  This compares to sales of 571,500 ounces on production of 592,100 ounces in the third quarter of 2011. Silver production totaled 8.5 million ounces compared to silver production of 6.5 million ounces in the prior year's third quarter.  Total cash costs were $220 per ounce of gold on a by-product basis and $660 per ounce on a co-product basis. Net earnings in the quarter were $498 million compared to $336 million in the third quarter of 2011. Adjusted net earnings in the third quarter totaled $441 million, or $0.54 per share, compared to $450 million or $0.56 per share, in the third quarter of 2011.  Adjusted net earnings in the third quarter of 2012 primarily exclude the gains from the foreign exchange translation of deferred income tax liabilities, mark-to-market loss on the conversion feature of convertible senior notes, and the reversal of impairment charges related to certain of its 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 $687 million compared to $681 million in last year's third quarter.  The average realized gold price for the quarter was $1,685 per ounce of gold sold.  Mexico Gold and silver production at the Peñasquito mine in the third quarter totaled 126,000 ounces and 7.0 million ounces respectively, driven by strong grades in the deeper portions of the current pit phase.  Lead production was 39.4 million pounds and zinc production was 98.4 million pounds.  Strong by-product metals production contributed to a total cash cost of negative $608 per ounce of gold on a by-product basis. Record production of gold and other metals at Peñasquito in the third quarter was achieved despite the continued impact of water shortages that affected mill throughput.  Work continues on the drilling of additional water wells in the pit dewatering area as well as the Cedros basin well field.  A water and tailings study to address potential longer-term water constraints and optimize tailings operations is underway and expected to be completed in the first half of 2013.  Water availability is expected to be sufficient to achieve guidance of between 370,000 and 390,000 ounces for 2012. Gold production at Los Filos in the third quarter was 79,700 ounces at a total cash cost of $575 per ounce.  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, gold production for the third quarter was 121,200 ounces at a total cash cost of $535 per ounce.  The increase in production was driven by the completion of de-stressing work on the 45 level in September which, combined with the completion of the 41 level in the second quarter, increased the available number of mine headings in the High Grade Zone.  Mineralization in the Footwall Zone was as expected.  The completion of the 2012 de-stress program provides increased production flexibility for the remainder of the year and gold production remains on track for guidance of between 460,000 and 510,000 ounces. During the third quarter, drilling continued from the 4199 exploration ramp.  New results continue to confirm the extension of the High Grade Zone at depth, as well as the existence of additional high grade intercepts down to the 57 level. A new zone known as NXT has been discovered above the 52 level and west of the High Grade Zone.  Additional drilling continues to test and extend the zone between the 47 and 52 levels, extending the structure up-dip and along strike.  An exploration drift has been collared on the 47 level to provide closer drill access to develop this new structure. At Porcupine in Ontario, gold production in the third quarter decreased to 53,100 ounces at a total cash cost of $929 per ounce, impacted by mine sequencing resulting in lower grades in the VAZ Zone.  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. At the Hollinger open pit project, development has focused on construction of the haul road between the Hollinger site and the Dome mill. Pending receipt of final permits, Hollinger 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 third quarter of 2012 focused on the growth and delineation of the TVZ Bulk Zone.  Surface drilling continued to follow up on mineralization intersected north of the Dome Mine, as well as nearer to Hoyle Pond with tighter spaced drilling around higher grade intersections in the sediments. Gold production at Musselwhite totaled 65,500 ounces at a total cash cost of $699 per ounce, driven by a 13% increase in mill throughput.  Exploration in the third quarter continued to focus on the northern extension of the Lynx Zone from surface and underground, drilling of the West Limb and the underground extension of the PQ Deeps and T-Antiform.  Surface drilling returned encouraging results on the Lynx Zone both on the North Shore and from barge drilling. Additional mineralized shear zones were intersected on the West Limb.  Underground drilling in the PQ Deeps continues to return positive results north of the 2011 resource boundary. Guatemala At Marlin, gold production totaled 47,900 ounces at a cash cost of $40 per ounce on a by-product basis. Silver production totaled 1.5 million ounces. Production decreased over the third quarter of 2011 as expected following completion of open pit mining operations in the Marlin pit at the end of 2011. Exploration drilling in the third quarter continued to focus on near-mine targets including the Coral mineralization. Argentina At Alumbrera, gold and copper production totaled 40,500 ounces and 31.2 million pounds respectively at a total cash cost of negative $628 per ounce on a by-product basis.  Cash costs were 203% lower than in the second quarter of 2012 primarily due to higher by-product sales credits and higher gold sales volume as a result of the resumption of shipments following the temporary suspension of sales in the second quarter of 2012.  Alumbrera expects to ship the remaining balance of delayed sales of 38,000 dry metric tonnes over the balance of 2012. Dominican Republic On August 14, 2012 first gold was poured at Pueblo Viejo and commercial production is expected in December 2012.  At the end of the third quarter of 2012, more than 2.0 million contained gold ounces were stockpiled.  As part of planned start up activities, the first, second and third autoclaves have been tested at 50% to 100% of design capacity with results that are in line with expectations for the initial ramp up period. The fourth autoclave is currently undergoing pre-commissioning testing, prior to planned commissioning in the fourth quarter.  Construction of the starter dam for the Pueblo Viejo tailings facility was essentially completed in the third quarter of 2012 to the designed height of 182.5 metres and the oxygen plant has been commissioned. Goldcorp's share of gold production for 2012 is expected to be approximately 53,000 ounces. In the first full five years of operation, Goldcorp's share of gold production is anticipated to be between 415,000 to 450,000 ounces at total cash costs of less than $350 per ounce6. Advancing the Project Pipeline Project Studies Progressing The company is evaluating internal studies related to a number of its growth projects.  At Cochenour, a study is under review that will include updated project costs and timing of first gold. Conclusions of this study will be included in the Company's annual guidance release in early January, 2013.  A study for the Camino Rojo project near Peñasquito was completed in the third quarter that contemplates a heap leach facility to process near-surface oxide and transition mineralization.  The study has demonstrated strong financial returns but does not reflect recent positive exploration results in the sulphide portions of the deposit.    Work will continue to focus on permitting and other site development activities.  Also in the Peñasquito District, a study of Noche Buena has indicated that the project currently does not reach the economic parameter requirements of the Company.    The feasibility study for the Cerro Blanco project in Guatemala remains underway and is now expected to be completed in early 2013.  Work is currently focused on updating the geologic model and additional drilling for possible reserves enhancement. At the Cerro Negro project in Argentina, infrastructure, construction, mine development and exploration activities at site continued to advance the project. During the quarter all major mechanical equipment to be imported was secured or en-route to site. 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 1,962 metres of the total 3,900 metres planned.  The Eureka stockpile now contains an estimated 25,150 tonnes at an expected grade of 10.79 g/t gold and 225 g/t silver.  Work on the ramps continues to progress at Mariana Central and Mariana Norte.  Overall Engineering, Procurement and Construction Management was 46% complete at the end of the third quarter of 2012. An aggressive exploration program continued in the third quarter, with eight surface diamond drill rigs completing 154 holes. The annual drill program at the mine was completed in October 2012 as planned.  Drilling focused on in-fill holes in the Mariana Central, Mariana Norte and San Marcos resource areas, various peripheral exploration targets, and condemnation drilling of the permanent camp site.  District geologic mapping resumed in September in the central portions of the Cerro Negro concession area.  Preparations advanced for the start-up of exploration drilling to occur in the fourth quarter at the La Esperanza project, located south of Cerro Negro. At the Éléonore project in Quebec, several major engineering projects were completed, including the superstructure of the concentrator building, the modular building for the permanent camp, the industrialized wastewater treatment plant equipment, conveyor and transformers.  Engineering of the permanent infrastructure and mill has reached a cumulative progress of approximately 31%. The Gaumond exploration shaft reached its final depth and excavation is now complete.  The shaft is now transitioning from sinking mode to normal operating mode with the installation of a skip-cage assembly and commissioning of the loading pocket.  Underground exploration drilling from the Gaumond shaft was temporarily suspended at the end of the third quarter to accommodate the shaft change from sinking to production mode. The exploration ramp excavation continued to progress and has now reached over 2,000 metres in length, which corresponds to a vertical depth of 300 metres below surface.  Currently, two diamond drills are performing definition drilling from strategic working platforms in the ramp. During the fourth quarter, two more rigs will be added for a total of four active diamond drills in the ramp focused on definition drilling. Construction of the production shaft and associated surface infrastructure continued in the third quarter of 2012  and has progressed with full face shaft sinking expected by the end of the year.  Concurrent with the construction of the production shaft infrastructure, collaring of the underground portion of the shaft also progressed. At the Cochenour project in Ontario, widening of the historical Cochenour shaft continued to advance, with 80 metres completed to a total depth of 423 metres.  The Cochenour-Red Lake haulage drift that will transport ore from Cochenour to existing Red Lake processing facilities advanced to 60% of completion.  Exploration drilling from the haulage drift is continuing with two drills in operation.  Diamond drilling with two drills at surface is underway to define the top portion of the Bruce Channel deposit and additional resources at Cochenour. At the El Morro project in Chile, 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 permitting 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, which is focused on consulting with local indigenous communities.  The Company continues to work with the Chilean authorities and local communities to establish the consultation process. Other project activities are focused on gathering information to support permit applications to be submitted following the completion of the administrative process and optimization of the project economics inclusive of such things as long term power supply solutions. Guidance The Company today reconfirmed guidance for 2012 of between 2.35 - 2.45 million ounces at total cash costs of between $310 to $340 per ounce of gold on a by-product basis and $625 and $650 per ounce on a co-product basis. 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 capital cost estimates for its projects and will provide updated cost information early in 2013.
