Roman Kashuba, CEO commented, “It was a good start, though we faced some problems and the beginning of the year was not like expected. The temporary flooding made us work with lower grading ore. However, we managed to start production earlier this year and we aim to reach full capacity in the middle of the year.”

FINANCIAL RESULTS FOR Q1 2016

The Company reported operating income of $401k in Q1 2016 compared to loss of $1,210k in Q1 2015. The increase was mainly the result of the beginning of production and sale in Q1 2016 whereas in Q1 2015 the Company suspended production.

Administrative costs for Q1 2016 decreased by 35% to $581k from $895k in Q1 2015 due to cost reduction as a result of changes in service agreement on third party services.

During Q1 2016, the Company incurred finance expenses of $1,260k compared to $4,466k in Q1 2015 due to conversion of loans to equity in March 2016.

Cash received from operating activity (before changes in working capital) in Q1 2016 was $744k as compared to outflow of $1,326k in Q1 2015. The increase was due to the sale of gold. Cash flow from investing activities in Q1 2016 was $5,207k as compared to outflow of $948k in Q1 2015. The inflow was due to repayment of short-term loans issued to a related party, partially offset by acquisition of pit equipment and increase in drilling expenditures. Cash used in financing activities in Q1 2016 was $30k compared to cash received from financing activities of $5,088k in Q1 2015. In Q1 2016 the Company has not received any loans.
