Corrado De Gasperis, Executive Chairman and CEO of the Company said, “We spent most of 2017 dramatically reducing operating costs and liabilities across the board, enhancing liquidity and establishing strategic partnerships that reposition the company for accelerated and larger growth.  We are now positioned and focused on real asset, resource and equity value growth for 2018, while concurrently eliminating our debt and expect meaningful updates in the next two months.”

2017 Selected Financial Highlights

  • Real estate operating costs were less than $0.1 million in 2017, as compared to $0.2 million in 2016, a 59.6% reduction and a record low, driven by the full year impact of favorable, targeted cost reductions.

  • Environmental and reclamation expenses were $0.8 million in 2017, as compared to $1.3 million in 2016, a 39.9% reduction and a record low despite higher costs associated with unusual precipitation.
  • Net loss was $10.6 million for 2017, as compared to a net loss of $13.0 million for 2016.
  • Net cash used in operations was $6.5 million for 2017, primarily related to general and administrative, exploration, mine claim costs, environmental expenditures and working capital.
  • Net cash provided by financing activities, was $7.4 million, primarily from debt and equity issuances.
  • Total debt obligations at December 31, 2017, were $10.3 million.

Corrado De Gasperis, Executive Chairman and CEO of the Company noted, “Our streamlining in 2017, lowered operating costs in all categories, by over $6.3 million, exceeding our targets, while maintaining the entirety of our land package, permitted infrastructure, and our internal engineering, geological, metallurgical, land and financial competencies. We are lean and well positioned to grow our resources, our assets and our equity value in 2018.  We are looking forward to updating our shareholders on the Lucerne and Dayton resource developments and other strategic development, in both the first and second quarters of 2018.”
