Precious metals developer NovaGold Resources Inc. has reported a third-quarter net loss of $21.5-million or 8 cents per share.

The loss for the three months ended Aug. 31 is less than half the net loss of $52.1-million or 22 cents per share it reported in the same year-earlier quarter.

The company credited the improvement primarily to the recovery of a decommissioning expense of $3.1-million in the 2012 quarter compared with an expense of $20.6-million for the corresponding period in 2011.
