Inca One Reports the Highest Level of Monthly Processing in 2023

 

 

 

 

 

INCA ONE GOLD CORP. (TSX-V: INCA) (OTCQB: INCAF) (FSE: SU92) a gold producer operating two mineral processing facilities in Peru, reports consolidated sales (unaudited) for December 2023 and comparative month over month operational results.

 

The Company is pleased to report its highest level of monthly production this year as milling in December reached 6,281 tonnes, a 28% increase over November and a significant 58% increase year over year. During December, daily throughput for the Company also reached its monthly peak for the calendar year, as the Plants milled an average of 203 tonnes per day.

 

Deliveries in December (6,461 tonnes) also finished on a positive trend and remained robust in the first two weeks of January.

 

Consolidated Operations December 2023 November 2023 MoM change
Sales (US) $2.9 M $4.6 M -37%
Deliveries (tonnes) 6,461 7,000 -8%
Milling (tonnes) 6,281 4,919 28%
Gold Production (ounces) 1,680 1,888 -11%

 

 

Sales revenue in December was US$2.9 million from the sale of 1,418 ounces of gold, an 11% decrease MoM. The decrease was due to the timing of exports and fewer ounces of gold sold despite a higher gold price received (US$2,020 per ounce). The balance of ounces from the strong processing activity during December remained in the system and were exported during January 2024, which is expected to impact January sales positively.

 

Given the recent tightness of capital for ore purchasing, the Company purchased lower-grade gold feedstock but higher quantities of tonnes in December. This allowed for the increase in tonnes milled but resulted in fewer gold ounces produced. Lower grade and higher tonnage allow for higher discounts on the purchase price of gold feedstock and, therefore, a higher velocity in the turnover of available cash, especially when there is excess plant capacity.
