Financial Results for 2015
The Company reported operating income of $6.1 million in Q4 2015 (excluding one-time write-off of obsolete inventory) compared to $1.02 million in Q4 2014.

The increase was due to significant growth in gold sales. Cash used in investing activities in Q4 2015 was $17.9 million as compared to inflow of $0.06 million in Q4 2014.
