Excellent Results for the Third Quarter and the Nine-Month Period Ended on March 31, 2021

03.06.2021 | 18:06 Uhr | The Newswire
Rouyn-Noranda, June 3, 2021 - Abcourt Mines Inc. (TSXV:ABI), (OTC:ABMBF), "Abcourt" or the "Company") reports excellent results for the third quarter and the nine-month period ended on march 31, 2021. All amounts are in Canadian dollars unless indicated differently.

Highlights:

  • - The company reports a revenue of $ 4,8 M for the third quarter. This is 15 % lower than the $ 5,6 M reported for the same period in 2020. The lower revenue was due to the failure of the hoist motor at Elder on December 22, 2020. Production was interrupted from that date to the end of January 2021.

  • - Despite this interruption, the Company reports a net profit of $ 367,413 for the 3rd quarter, compared to a loss of $ 97,604 for the same period in 2020. An adjusted net profit of $ 938,456 was realized in 2021, compared to $ 654,837 in 2020. The improvement is due to a lower cost of sales which is explained by an improvement in the ore grade and a reduction in amortization, depletion and royalties.

  • - The average price received for the sale of gold was $ 2,189 ( US $ 1,745 ) per ounce in 2021. The company sold 2,199 ounces of golds in the third quarter, compared to 2,585 ounces in 2020, a reduction of 15 %. The company sold a fewer member of ounces because of the interruption of operations for one month.

  • - Cash cost per ounce sold was $ 1,648 ( US $ 1,314 ) and all in sustaining costs were $ 2,002 ( US $ 1,596 ) in 2021 compared to a cash cost of $ 1,844 ( US $ 1,366 ) per ounce and an all-in sustaining cost of $ 2,129 ( US $ 1,577 ) in 2020. This represents a decrease of 11 % for the cash cost and 6 % for the all-in sustaining costs compared to 2020. The reduction in cash costs and all-in sustaining costs is explained by lower mining costs and by an improvement of the ore grade at the Elder mine. For the 3rd quarter, the grade was 4.49 g/t of gold compared to 3.6 g/t of gold for the same period in 2020. The increase in grade was about 25 %. The lowering of the ounces sold, by about 15 %, reduced the impact of the better grade on the cash cost.

  • - The cash provided by operating activities totaled 324 k $, compared to a lost of 629 k $ for T-3, 2020. The company closed the quarter with $ 3,3 M cash compared to $ 1,9 M on June 30, 2020, that is an increase of $ 1,4 M. The increase in cash is due mainly to a first tranche of $ 1 M received from the Royal Bank of Canada loan.

Recent developments:

  • - At the Elder mine, drifts were advanced on levels 4, 10 and 11 to open new ore zones. Rehabilitation work on level 12 was started.

  • - At the Sleeping Giant mine, rehabilitation work is being done in old drifts. New drifts are advanced and definition drilling is done on levels 235 and 295 to open new ore zones on the upper levels of the mine.

Over the nine-month period, our operations generated $ 5,2 M of cash which was used to continue the development of Sleeping Giant and Elder mines.

Non-GAAP Financial Performance Measures

This press release presents certain financial performance measures, total cash costs per ounce of gold produced, sustaining costs and all-in sustaining costs per ounce of gold produced which are non-International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) performances measures. This data may not be comparable to data presented by other gold producers. Non-GAAP financial performance measures should be considered together with other data prepared in accordance with IFRS.

The adjusted net profit is a measure of performance that members of the direction use to evaluate the performance of activities by the Company. Without taking into account the accounting policies, taxation laws and the structure of capital as these elements may potentially give a wrong representation of the capacity of the Company to generate cash with its operation. The adjusted net profit excludes interest expenses, taxes and amortization.

The cash costs and all-in sustaining costs are common performance measures in the gold mining industry. The Company reports cash cost per ounce based on ounces produced. Cash cost include operating mining costs and royalties but is exclusive of amortization and depletion and sustaining capital expenditures. The all-in sustaining costs include costs of sales and sustaining capital expenditures and administrative costs but exclude amortization and depletion and accretion expenses. The Company believes that the all-in sustaining costs present a complete picture of the Company's operating performance or its ability to generate free cash flows from its operation.

ABOUT ABCOURT MINES INC.

Abcourt is a gold producer and a Canadian exploration company with strategically located properties in northwestern Quebec, Canada. The Elder property has gold resources. Abcourt is currently focusing on the exploitation of the Elder mine and on the development of the Sleeping Giant mine.

In 2016, Abcourt acquired the Sleeping Giant mine and mill, located half-way between Amos and Matagami, in Abitibi, Province of Quebec. The mill has a capacity to treat 700 to 750 tonnes per day. An estimate of the mineral resources, according to Ni-43-101 was prepared by Mr. Valère Larouche, consulting engineer in geology. It was filed on Sedar on May 13, 2019.

Measured mineral resources total 10,900 tonnes with a grade of 12.20 g/t of gold and indicated resources total 475,625 tonnes with a grade of 11.20 g/t of gold. Inferred resources are 93,100 tonnes with a grade of 11.85 g/t of gold. A NI 43-101 feasibility study was completed in July 2019 by PRB Mining Services Inc. Probable reserves according to NI 43-101 have been estimated at 339,221 tonnes with a grade of 7.9 g/t of gold.

The Abcourt-Barvue property has silver-zinc reserves. A NI 43-101 feasibility study was completed in 2007 by Roche / Genivar. An update was completed in July 2019 by PRB Mining Services Inc. A total of 8.07M tonnes are in proven and probable reserves with a grade of 51.79 g/t of silver and 2.83% zinc. About 81.6% of these reserves are mineable by open pit and 18.4% are mineable by underground operations. In addition, inferred resources total 2.07M tonnes with a grade of 114.16 g/t of silver and 2.89% zinc.

For the long term in gold, the Corporation has prepared a $ 2M exploration programme, mainly for the Sleeping Giant mine where important targets of gold mineralization have not yet been explored.

This press release was prepared by Mr. Renaud Hinse, Engineer and President of Abcourt Mines Inc. Mr. Hinse is a "Qualified Person" under the terms of NI 43 101. Mr. Hinse has approved the content of the disclosure in this press release.
