GoGold Resources Inc. (TSX: GGD) (OTCQX: GLGDF) is pleased to announce the financial results for the third fiscal quarter of 2022, for the three months ended June 30, 2022 where Parral generated $10.4 million in revenue (all amounts are in U.S. dollars) from the sale of 512,670 silver equivalent ounces.
“In the quarter, we continued to focus on our Los Ricos project as we advance Los Ricos South to a pre-feasibility study and continue with our drilling program at Los Ricos North,” said Brad Langille, President and CEO. “Parral continues to produce for us, providing meaningful cash flow, despite the lower market silver price in the quarter, which contributes to the general and administrative costs and the Los Ricos exploration budget.”
During the quarter Parral generated free cash of $3.7 million before working capital changes (Non-IFRS measure, see reconciliation in management’s discussion and analysis as filed on SEDAR). Silver equivalent ounces sold increased by 15% compared to the March quarter end. Production is lower compared to the prior year as the project transitioned to a different zone in the tailings deposit at the start of 2022 which resulted in a lower stacking rate during the year so far to improve pad kinetics.
Highlights for the quarter ending June 30, 2022:
At Los Ricos, the Company drilled 22,778 metres on the projects for the quarter ended June 30, 2022 compared to 26,030 metres in the quarter ending March 31, 2022. The Company capitalized $7.9 million to the projects for drilling, exploration and consulting for the quarter ended June 30, 2022, compared to $6.0 million in the prior year. This included $4.7 million at Los Ricos North and $3.2 million at Los Ricos South. The Corporation is continuing the engineering studies required for a pre-feasibility study at Los Ricos South and undergoing a 100,000 metre drilling campaign at Los Ricos North in 2022 with the focus on increasing ounces in Mineral Resource Estimates.
