Table from Q2 2021 press release
Sales revenue for the quarter ended June 30, 2021 amounted to $ Nil compared to revenue of $ Nil for the quarter ended June 30, 2020. Shipments of concentrate commenced during the third quarter of 2019. Concentrate sales provisional revenues totalled US$ 218,000 for the second quarter of 2021 compared to US $ Nil for the second quarter of 2020. Until the mine commences commercial production, the net proceeds from concentrate sales are being offset against development assets.
The Net Loss for the quarter ended June 30, 2021 amounted to $ 2,888,568 (2020: $ 792,141) and the cash inflow from operating activities before changes in non-cash working capital for the quarter ended June 30, 2021 amounted to $ 144,806 (2020: ($ 294,582)). The difference in the net loss is mainly due to stock based compensation and warrant issue costs from financing activities.
The Company had a cash balance of $ 6,142,477 at June 30, 2021 compared to $ 199,953 at June 30, 2020. The working capital surplus at June 30, 2021 amounted to $ 4,505,905 compared to a working capital deficit of $ 7,700,406 at June 30, 2020.
The Company during the month of July initiated an initial 4,000 metre Phase 1 drill program targeting the Joshua vein from surface and targeting the Kearney vein from underground drilling.
Safety is a high priority and the company continued to invest in safety-related training and infrastructure. The zero lost time accident rate since the start of underground operations continues. Environmental monitoring demonstrates a high level of regulatory compliance. With the new management and operations team in place, detailed review of mine plans and production profile are ongoing.
“The Company has made great strides in advancing the Omagh project with the commencement of drilling to increase the confidence of resources for mine planning while also looking to expand known resources. Operationally the Company has secured critical new mining equipment to support mining activities while strengthening site management and operations team as we commence a phased restart of operations,” commented Mario Stifano, CEO.
