Companies under coverage are scheduled to begin reporting Q1 operating and financial results during the week of April 25.
In Q1 2016, we forecast gold producers under coverage would report a 9 per cent decline in equity production quarter-over-quarter, affected by sequencing and seasonality across almost all intermediate and senior producers. Total cash costs are expected to decrease by 1 per cent quarter-over-quarter.
Despite these changes, earnings and sector free cash flow are both forecast to increase, supported by gold's 8 per cent increase to $1,181 per oz. in Q1.
