Equinox Gold Corp. (TSX: EQX) (NYSE American: EQX) is pleased to report its unaudited financial and operating results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended December 31, 2020.  These results are preliminary and could change based on final audited results.Equinox Gold’s 2020 audited consolidated financial statements and accompanying management’s discussion and analysis for the three months and year ended December 31, 2020, will be released later this month.

 

“Equinox Gold’s 2020 results reflect delivery on the Company’s growth and diversification strategy. Our seven operating mines generated 477,200 ounces of gold and operating cash flow of $217 million in the year, compared to our 2019 production of 201,000 ounces of gold and $60 million in operating cash flow,” said Christian Milau, Chief Executive Officer. “Our acquisition of Premier Gold Mines will bring further scale and diversification with the addition of a producing mine in Mexico and a 60% interest in the construction-ready, world-class Hardrock project in Ontario, Canada. With strong cash flow from our operating mines and a healthy balance sheet, Equinox Gold is an excellent position to achieve ambitious goals in 2021 and beyond in terms of gold production and cash flow as we continue to develop our extraordinary pipeline of development and expansion projects.”

1. Production and costs attributable to Equinox Gold post completion of the Leagold merger on March 10, 2020. Includes 1,523 oz of gold produced at Castle Mountain during ramp-up and commissioning.
2. AISC per oz sold excludes corporate general and administration expenses.
3. AISC per oz sold, sustaining capital and non-sustaining capital are non-IFRS measures. See Non-IFRS Measures and Cautionary Notes.

 

Guidance was updated on August 10 primarily to reflect the effect of government-mandated temporary suspensions related to COVID-19 and revised on November 9 to reflect the effect of the Los Filos blockade, which was removed in December.

 

Capital expenditures were lower than planned for the year, primarily due to the suspension of mining and development activities at Los Filos as the result of a community blockade and the deferral of certain expenditures as the result of COVID-19 restrictions.

 

2021 OUTLOOK

 

On February 9, 2021, the Company announced 2021 production guidance of 600,000 to 665,000 oz of gold, an approximate 33% increase over the Company’s 2020 full-year production. Cost guidance includes cash costs of $940 to $1,000 per oz of gold sold and AISC of $1,190 to $1,275 per oz of gold sold. The Company may revise guidance during the year to reflect changes to expected results.

 

Consolidated gold production is expected to increase quarter-over-quarter during the year, with the fourth quarter benefiting from higher-grade ore at both Los Filos and Mesquite. Cash costs for 2021 reflect the lower grades mined at Los Filos for the first half of the year until the Guadalupe stripping program and Bermejal underground development are complete, providing access to higher-grade ore. Bermejal underground development will not commence, however, until successful resolution of an amended community support agreement with the Carizalillo community. AISC in 2021 reflect significant development and stripping campaigns at Los Filos, Mesquite and Aurizona to access higher-grade ore, which will boost production and reduce costs in the second half of the year.

 

The Company is investing significantly in its projects in 2021, setting the foundation for lower-cost, longer-life mines and substantial production growth going forward. The Company has budgeted $178 million in sustaining capital for 2021 (including some capital carried over from 2020), compared to the total spend in 2020 of $76.3 million. The Company is also undertaking meaningful growth projects in 2021, including construction of the Santa Luz mine, advancing expansion projects at the Los Filos mine, completing a pit expansion at the RDM mine and significant exploration programs focused on mine life extension. The Company has budgeted $249 million in non-sustaining growth capital for 2021, compared to $92.8 million in 2020.

 

The Company expects to complete the Premier Gold acquisition in March 2021. Guidance will be updated following completion of the acquisition to include the producing Mercedes Mine in Mexico and to reflect expenditures associated with construction of the Hardrock Mine in Ontario, Canada, which is expected to commence in Q4 2021 as Santa Luz construction is nearing completion.

Outlook

 

  • 2021 reflects a year of significant investment at Mesquite with a focus on mine life extension
  • This will result in higher per ounce costs in the earlier part of the year as compared to H2 2021
  • 2021 production estimated at 130,000 to 140,000 oz of gold
  • 2021 cash costs of $925 to $975 per oz and AISC of $1,275 to $1,325 per oz
  • AISC includes sustaining capital of $48 million, of which $30 million relates to a stripping program to access the higher-grade oxide Brownie deposit, which will contribute significantly to production beginning in H2 2021
    • Ore stacking activity in H1 2021 will be significantly lower than in H2 2021 due to Brownie stripping
  • Sustaining capital includes $10 million for leach pad expansion and $6 million for equipment
  • Non-sustaining capital of $9 million is allocated entirely to exploration with a focus on resource growth and reserve replacement in the Brownie, Vista East and Rainbow deposits

NON-IFRS MEASURES

 

This document refers to cash costs, cash costs per oz sold, AISC, AISC per oz sold, AISC contribution margin, adjusted net income, adjusted EPS, mine-site free cash flow, adjusted EBITDA, net debt, and sustaining and non-sustaining capital expenditures that are measures with no standardized meaning under International Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRS”), i.e. they are non-IFRS measures, and may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. Their measurement and presentation is consistently prepared and is intended to provide additional information and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with IFRS.

 

Cash Costs and AISC

 

Cash costs is a common financial performance measure in the gold mining industry; however, it has no standard meaning under IFRS. The Company reports total cast costs on a per oz of gold sold basis. The Company believes that, in addition to conventional measures prepared in accordance with IFRS, certain investors use this information to evaluate the Company’s performance and ability to generate operating income and cash flow from mining operations. Cash costs include mine site operating costs, but are exclusive of amortization, reclamation, capital and exploration costs and net of by-product sales and then divided by ounces sold to arrive at cash costs per oz. The measure is not necessarily indicative of cash flow from operations under IFRS or operating costs presented under IFRS.

 

The Company also reports AISC per oz of gold sold. The methodology for calculating AISC was developed internally as calculated below, and readers should be aware that this measure does not have a standardized meaning. Current IFRS measures used in the gold industry, such as operating expenses, do not capture all of the expenditures incurred to discover, develop and sustain gold production. The Company believes the AISC measure provides further transparency into costs associated with producing gold and will assist analysts, investors and other stakeholders of the Company in assessing its operating performance, its ability to generate free cash flow from current operations and its overall value.

 

Previously, cash cost per oz sold and AISC per oz sold were calculated including purchase price allocation adjustments for the fair values of inventory as the fair values approximated the Company’s actual production costs.  Due to the significant increase in gold prices during the year, the fair values attributed to acquired inventory in the Leagold Merger do not approximate actual production costs; as such, cash cost per oz sold and AISC per oz sold have been normalized for the purchase price allocation adjustments to inventory. Comparative periods have also been adjusted to conform with the current methodology and are different from those previously reported.

 

 

The following table provides a reconciliation of cash costs per oz of gold sold and AISC per oz of gold sold to the most directly comparable IFRS measure on an aggregate basis.

For the three months ended December 31, 2020, September 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019, the Company incurred $2.0 million, $2.4 million, and $1.0 million, respectively, in non-sustaining exploration expenditures. For the years ended December 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019, the Company incurred $10.5 million and $1.0 million, respectively, in non-sustaining exploration expenditures.
2. Capital expenditures from development projects include construction expenditures and pre-production inventory classified as construction-in-progress at Castle Mountain for all periods presented, and at Aurizona for the year ended December 31, 2019.  Santa Luz construction expenditures are included in non-sustaining capital expenditures for the year ended December 31, 2020.
3. Non-cash additions include right-of-use assets associated with leases recognized in the period and increases to reclamation assets arising from changes in discount rate and inflation rate assumptions in the reclamation provision. For the year ended December 31, 2019, other non-cash additions relate to value added tax credits related to Aurizona construction recorded net of capital additions.

 

Mine-site Free Cash Flow

 

Mine-site free cash flow is a non-IFRS financial performance measure. The Company believes this to be a useful indicator of its ability to operate without reliance on additional borrowing or usage of existing cash. Mine-site free cash flow is intended to provide additional information only and does not have any standardized meaning under IFRS and may not be comparable to similar measures of performance presented by other mining companies. Mine-site free cash flow should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with IFRS.

EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and AISC Contribution Margin

 

The Company believes that, in addition to conventional measures prepared in accordance with IFRS, certain investors use adjusted EBITDA and all-in sustaining contribution margin to evaluate the Company’s performance and ability to generate cash flows and service debt. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as earnings before interest, tax, depreciation, and amortization, adjusted to exclude specific items that are significant but not reflective of the underlying operating performance of the Company, such as the impact of fair value changes in the value of warrants, foreign exchange contracts and gold contracts, unrealized foreign exchange gains and losses, and share-based compensation. It is also adjusted to exclude items whose timing or amount cannot be reasonably estimated in advance or that are not considered representative of core operating performance, such as impairments and gains and losses on disposals of assets.

 

The following tables provides the calculation of AISC contribution margin (revenue less AISC), EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA, as calculated by the Company for the three months ended December 31, 2020, September 30, 2020, and December 31, 2019, and the years ended December 31, 2020 and 2019.

Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted EPS

 

Adjusted net income and adjusted EPS are used by management and investors to measure the underlying operating performance of the Company. Adjusted net income is defined as net income adjusted to exclude specific items that are significant but not reflective of the underlying operating performance of the Company, such as the impact of fair value changes in the value of warrants, foreign exchange contracts and gold contracts, unrealized foreign exchange gains and losses, share-based compensation. It is also adjusted to exclude items whose timing or amount cannot be reasonably estimated in advance or that are not considered representative of core operating performance, such as impairments and gains and losses on disposals of assets. Adjusted net income per share amounts are calculated using the weighted average number of shares outstanding on a basic and diluted basis as determined by IFRS.

 

The following table provides the calculation of adjusted net income and adjusted EPS, as adjusted and calculated by the Company for the three months ended December 31, 2020, September 30, 2020, and December 31, 2019, and the years ended December 31, 2020 and 2019.

Net Debt

 

The Company believes that in addition to conventional measures prepared in accordance with IFRS, the Company and certain investors and analysts use net debt to evaluate the Company’s performance. Net debt does not have any standardized meaning prescribed under IFRS, and therefore it may not be comparable to similar measures employed by other companies. The data are intended to provide additional information and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performances prepared in accordance with IFRS. Net debt is calculated as the sum of the current and non-current portions of long-term debt net of the cash and cash equivalent balance as at the balance sheet date. A reconciliation of net debt is provided below.
