The milled tonnage for the third quarter exceeded 95,000 tonnes and the plant utilization was a high 93.7%. The production cost per milled ore tonne amounted to 415 SEK or 46 EUR which was in line with recent previous periods. Cash cost for the third quarter was below 1,000 USD/oz and amounted to 960 USD/oz, which contributed to the positive EBITDA in the third quarter.


Cost reduction and increased efficiency program continues

Early 2014 the Board made the decision to start co-operation negotiations in order to carry out cost reduction initiatives and improve overall efficiency at Pampalo operations.

During the third quarter the cost reduction and efficiency improvements have continued, although total operational cost has increased to some extent mainly due to increased activity at Rämepuro satellite mine. The cost reductions are partially due to reduced activities, e.g. drifting, in the Pampalo underground mine. Increased lower cost open pit mining tonnage has also contributed.

To secure future operations in the Pampalo underground mine, the Company expects that underground drifting in the Pampalo mine must be accelerated during fourth quarter of 2014. This will increase both total and unit operating costs, but is deemed to be necessary for long term operations.


Rämepuro satellite mine operations

The Company’s first satellite mine Rämepuro has been in full scale production since early summer 2014. Operations have progressed as planned and scheduled.


Regional exploration

Exploration drilling and other green field exploration works at Korvilansuo area and other regional targets have been suspended. After the reporting period the company has recruited an exploration manager M.Sc. Jyrki Bergström and the Company will restart its regional exploration as soon as the financing of the exploration activities is secured.


Health and Safety

One accident happened during the third quarter to an employee. The Company’s safety performance has unfortunately deteriorated to the normal level of the industry and overall “LTIFR” rate is 23. The Company policy is a safety target of “zero accidents – zero harm” and a campaign to improve the “LTIFR” has been initiated.


Personnel

At the end of the September the total number of personnel was 69 employees of which three persons remains laid off. The contractors working at the mine sites in Pampalo and Rämepuro had 37 employees.


Rights issue of units 2014

In September the Board of Directors of Endomines AB decided (subject to the approval by an extraordinary general meeting that is to be held on October 30, 2014) on a rights issue of units consisting of shares and warrants (the "Issue"), totalling approximately MSEK 96.1. The Issue is secured to 80 per cent by subscription undertakings and underwriting commitments.

Endomines has continued the exploration activities at the Pampalo mine and in its vicinity. The Company’s objective is to increase the knowledge of the mineralizations in the deeper parts of the Pampalo mine and in the potential open pits nearby. The Company has also commenced mining operations at Rämepuro and intends to start mine production at Hosko in 2015 and to prepare for other satellite mines along the Karelian Gold Line. However, this will require additional capital.

The proceeds from the Issue shall, besides a strengthening of the Company's liquidity and financial base, be utilized for continued exploration and development of the operations. A continued exploration is needed in order to extend the operational period of the Pampalo plant and mine with nearby situated deposits, as well as to secure the conversion of mineral resources to mineral reserves in order to be able to open new mines and thus create increased production along the Karelian Gold Line.

The Issue is subject to approval by the extraordinary general meeting in Endomines. The extraordinary general meeting will be held on October 30, 2014 at 17:00 at Erik Penser Bankaktiebolag's office, Biblioteksgatan 9 in Stockholm.

The Company has in connection with the Offering entered into subscription undertakings and underwriting commitments with existing shareholders and external parties amounting to 76.9 MSEK or 80.0 per cent of the total Issue.


Subsequent events

Endomines strengthened its organisation and recruited an Exploration Manager to the Company’s operations at Karelian Gold Line, Finland.


Outlook for 2014

The production guidance for 2014 is in line with 2013 gold production (790 kg in 2013).

Total operating cost is expected to increase due to increased activity at the mine sites.
