Eldorado Gold Reports First Quarter 2022 Financial and Operational Results

Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA


VANCOUVER, British Columbia, April 28, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Eldorado Gold Corporation (“Eldorado” or “the Company”) today reports the Company’s financial and operational results for the first quarter of 2022. For further information please see the Company’s Consolidated Financial Statements and Management’s Discussion and Analysis ("MD&A") filed on SEDAR at www.sedar.com under the Company’s profile.

First Quarter 2022 Highlights

Operations

  • Q1 gold production: 93,209 ounces in Q1 2022. Production was heavily impacted in the earlier part of the quarter by COVID-related absenteeism, weather related challenges and power outages at our operations. In the latter part of the quarter, most operations returned to planned levels of tonnage, grades and production.
  • Q1 gold sales: 94,472 ounces at an average realized gold price per ounce sold (1) of $1,889 in Q1 2022.
  • Cash operating costs(1): $835 per ounce sold in Q1 2022. The increase in cost was primarily driven by lower overall gold production and an increase in the price of certain commodities and consumables.
  • All-in sustaining costs ("AISC")(1): $1,347 per ounce sold in Q1 2022.
  • Total capital expenditures: $60.8 million in Q1 2022, including $5.6 million of growth capital(1) spent at Skouries with activity focused on cladding of the process plant, commencement of basic engineering, and continued preservation of site facilities and equipment. Growth capital of $23.7 million in Q1 2022 focused on waste stripping at Kisladag and construction of the North leach pad.
  • Production outlook: We are maintaining our 2022 annual guidance of 460,000 – 490,000 ounces of gold production.

Financial

  • Cash flow from operating activities before changes in working capital(1): $49.7 million in Q1 2022.
  • Cash, cash equivalents and term deposits: $434.7 million, as at March 31, 2022.
  • Adjusted EBITDA(1): $62.1 million in Q1 2022.
  • Net loss: Q1 2022 net loss attributable to shareholders of the Company was $316.8 million or $1.74 loss per share. Lower net income in Q1 2022 is primarily attributable to an impairment of $365.4 million ($345.4 million, net of deferred tax) of the Certej project, a non-core asset, and a write-down of $19.8 million ($15.4 million, net of deferred tax) relating to decommissioned equipment at Kisladag.
  • Adjusted net loss(1): $19.0 million net loss, or $0.10 loss per share in Q1 2022. Adjusted net loss in Q1 2022 removes, among other things, the non-cash impairment charge related to the Certej project and the non-cash write-down of decommissioned equipment at Kisladag.
  • Free cash flow(1): Negative $26.8 million in Q1 2022, primarily due to lower gold production and sales.
  • Financial outlook: Cash operating costs and AISC were higher in Q1 2022 due to operational challenges that resulted in lower gold ounces produced and sold. In light of significant volatility in prices for electricity, fuel, reagents and other consumables required for our operations, we are monitoring the impact on expected full year operating and capital costs and will provide an update next quarter.

Certain additional disclosures for non-IFRS financial measures and ratios have been incorporated by reference and additional detail can be found at the end of this press release and in the section 'Non-IFRS and Other Financial Measures and Ratios' in the Company's March 31, 2022 MD&A.

Other

  • Strengthened union agreements: In January 2022, we completed a two-year collective bargaining agreement with our labour union in Turkey. Adjustments were incorporated in light of continued high consumer inflation rates to support our workforce with rising costs of food and electricity. In April 2022, we also completed a two-year collective bargaining agreement with our labour unions in Greece. The agreement incorporates technology and flexibility to support the achievement of productivity and efficiency targets.

"Our global operations were met with significant challenges in the first quarter,” said George Burns, Eldorado’s President and Chief Executive Officer. "Severe weather in Turkey and Greece, a government-mandated power outage in Turkey, and COVID-related absenteeism across all sites impacted our production. As we previously indicated, production in 2022 is expected to be heavily weighted to the second half of the year. Despite the headwinds, we have seen operations improve towards the end of the quarter and are maintaining our consolidated full-year guidance of 460,000 to 490,000 ounces of gold," added Burns.

“During the quarter, we made meaningful progress at Skouries, our development project in Greece, with activity focused on cladding of the process plant, commencement of basic engineering, and continued preservation of site facilities and equipment. At Kisladag, the ramp-up of the newly installed HPGR is continuing, and agglomeration optimization continues to show improvements. At Lamaque, an exploration drift is currently being developed from the Triangle-Sigma decline to provide drilling platforms for resource conversion of the Ormaque deposit beginning in the second quarter."

"Our focus ahead is on maintaining positive momentum by delivering on key initiatives including a financing package for Skouries. Financing discussions continue to advance, and we are evaluating all available options including, joint venture equity partners, project and debt financing through EU and Greek lenders as well as the EU Recovery and Resilience Fund, and metal streams. Subject to financing and Board approval, target restart of construction at Skouries is in the second half of 2022."

(2) These financial measures or ratios are non-IFRS financial measures or ratios. See the section 'Non-IFRS and Other Financial Measures and Ratios' in the Company's MD&A for explanations and discussion of these non-IFRS financial measures and ratios.
(3) Revenues from silver, lead and zinc sales are off-set against cash operating costs.
(4) Q1 2021 amounts have been recast to correct an immaterial error related to an understatement of the net book value of certain of our property, plant and equipment as a result of errors in the amounts recorded for depreciation.
(5) Q1 2021 amounts have been restated for a voluntary change in accounting policy to classify cash paid for interest on the statement of cash flows as a financing, rather than an operating activity.
(6) The Brazil segment is presented as a discontinued operation in 2021. See Note 17 of our condensed consolidated interim financial statements. Amounts presented are from continuing operations only.    

Total revenue was $194.7 million in Q1 2022, a decrease of 13% from total revenue of $224.6 million in Q1 2021. The decrease was primarily driven by lower sales volumes in Q1 2022, and was partly offset by higher average metal prices.

Production costs decreased to $104.6 million in Q1 2022 from $108.6 million in Q1 2021 primarily due the suspension of operations at Stratoni at the end of 2021. Production costs at Stratoni totalled $15.3 million in Q1 2021. This decrease was partly offset by increases in certain production costs in Q1 2022 as a result of supply concerns caused by financial and trade sanctions against Russia, and ongoing supply chain challenges due to COVID-19. Cost increases primarily impacted electricity, fuel and reagents.

Cash operating costs in Q1 2022 averaged $835 per ounce sold, an increase from $641 per ounce sold in Q1 2021. The increase was primarily due to lower production in the quarter, combined with an increase in certain production costs. AISC per ounce sold increased to $1,347 in Q1 2022, from $986 in Q1 2021, primarily due to the increase in cash operating costs per ounce sold, combined with higher royalty expense.

We reported net loss attributable to shareholders from continuing operations of $316.8 million ($1.74 loss per share) in Q1 2022, compared to net earnings of $14.3 million ($0.08 earnings per share) in Q1 2021. Lower net income in Q1 2022 is primarily attributable to the impairment of the Certej project, a non-core gold asset, and the write-down of decommissioned equipment at Kisladag.

Adjusted net loss was $19.0 million ($0.10 loss per share) in Q1 2022, compared to adjusted net earnings of $25.2 million ($0.14 earnings per share) in Q1 2021. Adjusted net loss in Q1 2022 removed the $365.4 million ($278.0 million attributable to shareholders and net of deferred tax) non-cash impairment of Certej, the $19.8 million ($15.4 million net of deferred tax) non-cash write-down of decommissioned equipment at Kisladag, $12.4 million loss on foreign exchange due to translation of deferred tax balances, a $7.0 million gain on the non-cash revaluation of the derivative related to redemption options in our debt and a $1.0 million deferred tax recovery relating to the impact of tax rate changes in Turkey.

Kisladag

Kisladag produced 29,779 ounces of gold in Q1 2022, a 36% decrease from 46,172 ounces in Q1 2021. The decrease was primarily due to COVID-19 related absenteeism, severe weather and an approximate three-day government-mandated power outage. The decrease was also the result of lower tonnage placed on the heap leach pad in Q4 2021 during the commissioning of the high-pressure grinding rolls circuit ("HPGR"). Average grade declined to 0.61 grams per tonne in Q1 2022 from 0.77 grams per tonne in Q1 2021.

Tonnes placed on the heap leach pad in Q1 2022 were lower than planned, primarily due to snowfall and prolonged freezing temperatures that impacted the ore conveyance and stacking system, reducing productivity in the quarter. Tonnes placed on the pad and production ramped up in March and optimization of the agglomeration circuit continued. The HPGR is performing to plan, with recovery rates as expected. Lower tonnes placed on the heap leach pad in Q1 2022 are expected to negatively impact gold production in Q2 2022.

Revenue decreased to $56.6 million in Q1 2022 from $85.7 million in Q1 2021, reflecting lower sales in the quarter and partly offset by an increase in the average realized gold price.

Production costs increased to $30.1 million in Q1 2022 from $26.3 million in Q1 2021 primarily due to cost increases in labour, reagents, electricity and fuel. These increases, combined with lower production in the quarter, resulted in a significant increase in cash operating costs per ounce sold to $861 in Q1 2022 from $492 in Q1 2021.

AISC per ounce sold increased to $1,084 in Q1 2022 from $607 in Q1 2021, primarily due to the increase in cash operating costs per ounce sold, combined with an increase in royalty expense. The increase in royalty expense to $3.7 million in Q1 2022 from $2.1 million in Q1 2021 was primarily due to a $2.8 million reversal of expense recorded in Q1 2021 following an amendment of retroactive gold royalty rates, and to a lesser extent, due to higher gold royalty rates in Q1 2022 in line with higher gold prices in the quarter.

Sustaining capital expenditures(1) of $2.5 million in Q1 2022 primarily included equipment rebuilds and processing improvements. Growth capital expenditures of $20.0 million in Q1 2022 included waste stripping to support the mine life extension, and construction of the first phase of the North heap leach pad. Severe weather in the quarter resulted in some delays in construction of the North heap leach pad and it is expected to be available for stacking in late 2022.

Lamaque

Lamaque produced 33,377 ounces of gold in Q1 2022, a 16% increase from 28,835 ounces in Q1 2021 and primarily due to higher throughput in the quarter. COVID-19 related absenteeism led to a reduction in workforce hours in January and February. This delayed the underground development of high-grade stopes, which led to lower than planned gold grades in the quarter. Mine development increased in March and gold grade and tonnage returned to planned levels. Average grade increased slightly to 5.27 grams per tonne in Q1 2022 from 5.17 grams per tonne in Q1 2021. Full-year gold production at Lamaque is expected to be in line with guidance.

Revenue increased to $64.9 million in Q1 2022 from $52.0 million in Q1 2021 due to higher production in the quarter, combined with a higher average realized gold price.

Production costs increased to $27.2 million in Q1 2022 from $23.0 million in Q1 2021, primarily due to higher production in the quarter. Cost increases for consumables were partly offset by a slightly weaker Canadian dollar during the quarter. Cash operating costs per ounce sold increased to $763 in Q1 2022 from $759 in Q1 2021, primarily reflecting higher production.

AISC per ounce sold increased to $1,182 in Q1 2022 from $1,162 in Q1 2021, primarily due to an increase in sustaining capital expenditure. Sustaining capital expenditure of $13.0 million in Q1 2022 primarily included underground development and construction. Growth capital expenditure of $1.8 million in Q1 2022 was primarily construction of underground infrastructure.

Certain additional disclosures for non-IFRS financial measures and ratios have been incorporated by reference and additional detail can be found at the end of this press release and in the section 'Non-IFRS and Other Financial Measures and Ratios' in the Company's March 31, 2022 MD&A.

Efemcukuru

Efemcukuru produced 21,057 payable ounces of gold in Q1 2022, a 10% decrease from 23,298 payable ounces in Q1 2021. The decrease was due to a planned decrease in grade to 5.95 grams per tonne in Q1 2022 from 6.67 grams per tonne in Q1 2021, and was partly offset by higher throughput during the quarter despite experiencing COVID-19 related absenteeism.

Revenue increased to $41.3 million in Q1 2022 compared to $39.8 million in Q1 2021. The increase was due to a higher average realized gold price during Q1 2022, partly offset by lower payable gold ounces sold.

Production costs increased to $17.0 million in Q1 2022 from $14.6 million in Q1 2021 due to increased tonnes processed, combined with cost increases in labour, electricity and consumables. These increases, combined with lower production in the quarter, resulted in an increase in cash operating costs per ounce sold to $648 in Q1 2022, from $525 in Q1 2021.

AISC per ounce sold increased to $999 in Q1 2022 from $693 in Q1 2021, primarily due to the increase in cash operating costs per ounce sold, combined with an increase in royalty expense. The increase in royalty expense to $3.1 million in Q1 2022 from $0.8 million in Q1 2021 was primarily due to a $1.7 million reversal of expense recorded in Q1 2021 following an amendment of retroactive gold royalty rates, and to a lesser extent, due to higher gold royalty rates in Q1 2022 in line with higher gold prices in the quarter.

Sustaining capital expenditures of $3.5 million in Q1 2022 was primarily underground development and growth capital expenditures of $0.4 million includes resource conversion drilling at Kokarpinar.

Olympias

Olympias produced 8,996 ounces of gold in Q1 2022, a 33% decrease from 13,437 ounces in Q1 2021. The decrease reflected lower processing volumes and lower gold grade in the quarter. Lead and zinc production were lower in Q1 2022 as compared to Q1 2021, also due to lower processing volumes while silver ounces produced were slightly higher due to higher grade. In January and February, gold production at Olympias was impacted by COVID-19 related absenteeism. Additionally, operations were impacted for approximately six days in January due to snowfall in the region which resulted in an approximate four-day power outage. Operations resumed mining to plan in March and achieved planned tonnage and grades for the month. Initiatives are in place to continue ramping up mine production tonnage, control the grades and maximize plant throughput for the remainder of the year. Plant throughput in Q2 2022 is expected to be impacted by planned processing tie-ins to improve water treatment plant efficiency and capacity.

Revenue decreased to $31.2 million in Q1 2022 compared to $33.4 million in Q1 2021 primarily as a result of lower sales volumes. Gold revenue was impacted during the quarter by the 13% VAT import charge levied on customers importing Olympias gold concentrate into China. This import charge, effective since October 1, 2021, reduces revenue by a corresponding amount. China was the primary destination of Olympias gold concentrate in Q1 2022, as shipments to Russia were halted as a result of the Russia-Ukraine conflict. We continue to explore other markets. These decreases were partly offset by an increase in the average realized gold price in the quarter. Silver and base metal revenue increased to $16.2 million in Q1 2022 from $12.9 million in Q1 2021, primarily due to strong metal prices in the quarter.

Production costs increased slightly to $30.2 million in Q1 2022 from $29.4 million in Q1 2021. Consistent costs in the quarter reflected price increases in electricity, fuel and other consumables, offset by reduced consumption as a result of lower production. These price increases, combined with lower production in the quarter, resulted in an increase in cash operating costs per ounce sold to $1,449 in Q1 2022 from $1,145 in Q1 2021. This increase was partly offset by a higher proportion of silver and base metal revenue in the quarter, which reduce cash operating costs as by-product credits.

AISC per ounce sold increased to $2,399 in Q1 2022 from $1,799 in Q1 2021 primarily due to the increase in cash operating costs per ounce sold, combined with an increase in royalty expense. Royalty expense increased to $2.5 million in Q1 2022 from $1.7 million in Q1 2021 as result of higher metal prices in the quarter. Sustaining capital expenditure of $5.6 million in Q1 2022 primarily included underground development, and resulted in a $155 increase in AISC per ounce sold due to lower gold production in the quarter.

Forward-looking Statements and Information

Certain of the statements made and information provided in this press release are forward-looking statements or information within the meaning of the United States Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 and applicable Canadian securities laws. Often, these forward-looking statements and forward-looking information can be identified by the use of words such as "ahead", “believes”, “continue”, “expects”, “focus”, “guidance”, “intends”, "outlook", “plans”, "target" or the negatives thereof or variations of such words and phrases or statements that certain actions, events or results “can”, “could”, "may", "might", “will” or "would" be taken, occur or be achieved.

Forward-looking statements or information contained in this release include, but are not limited to, statements or information with respect to: the duration, extent and other implications of production challenges and cost increases, including those in respect of COVID-19 and restrictions and suspensions with respect to the Company's operations; the Company’s 2022 annual guidance, including our individual mine production; the Ormaque exploration drift; resource conversion drilling; the optimization and development of Greek operations; the Company's conference call to be held on April 29, 2022; our expectation as to our future financial and operating performance; expected metallurgical recoveries and improved concentrate grade and quality; non-IFRS financial measures and ratios; risk factors affecting our business; and our strategy, plans and goals, including our proposed exploration, development, construction, permitting, financing and operating potential, plans and priorities and related timelines. Forward-looking statements and forward-looking information by their nature are based on assumptions and involve known and unknown risks, market uncertainties and other factors, which may cause the actual results, performance or achievements of the Company to be materially different from any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements or information.

We have made certain assumptions about the forward-looking statements and information, including assumptions about: our preliminary gold production and our guidance, benefits of the completion of the decline at Lamaque, the improvements at Kisladag and the optimization of Greek operations; tax expenses in Turkey; how the world-wide economic and social impact of COVID-19 is managed and the duration and extent of the COVID-19 pandemic; timing, cost and results of our construction and exploration; the geopolitical, economic, permitting and legal climate that we operate in; the future price of gold and other commodities; the global concentrate market; exchange rates; anticipated values, costs, expenses and working capital requirements; production and metallurgical recoveries; mineral reserves and resources; and the impact of acquisitions, dispositions, suspensions or delays on our business and the ability to achieve our goals. In addition, except where otherwise stated, we have assumed a continuation of existing business operations on substantially the same basis as exists at the time of this release.

Even though our management believes that the assumptions made and the expectations represented by such statements or information are reasonable, there can be no assurance that the forward-looking statement or information will prove to be accurate. Many assumptions may be difficult to predict and are beyond our control.

Furthermore, should one or more of the risks, uncertainties or other factors materialize, or should underlying assumptions prove incorrect, actual results may vary materially from those described in forward-looking statements or information. These risks, uncertainties and other factors include, among others: inability to meet production guidance; inability to achieve the expected benefits of the completion of the decline at Lamaque, the improvements at Kisladag and the optimization of Greek operations; inability to assess income tax expenses in Turkey; risks relating to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and any future pandemic, epidemic, endemic or similar public health threats; risks relating to our operations being located in foreign jurisdictions; community relations and social license; climate change; liquidity and financing risks; development risks; indebtedness, including current and future operating restrictions, implications of a change of control, ability to meet debt service obligations, the implications of defaulting on obligations and change in credit ratings; environmental matters; waste disposal; the global economic environment; government regulation; reliance on a limited number of smelters and off-takers; commodity price risk; mineral tenure; permits; risks relating to environmental sustainability and governance practices and performance; non-governmental organizations; corruption, bribery and sanctions; litigation and contracts; information technology systems; estimation of mineral reserves and mineral resources; production and processing estimates; credit risk; actions of activist shareholders; price volatility, volume fluctuations and dilution risk in respect of our shares; reliance on infrastructure, commodities and consumables; currency risk; inflation risk; interest rate risk; tax matters; dividends; financial reporting, including relating to the carrying value of our assets and changes in reporting standards; labour, including relating to employee/union relations, employee misconduct, key personnel, skilled workforce, expatriates and contractors; reclamation and long-term obligations; regulated substances; necessary equipment; co-ownership of our properties; acquisitions, including integration risks, and dispositions; the unavailability of insurance; conflicts of interest; compliance with privacy legislation; reputational issues; competition, as well as those risk factors discussed in the sections titled “Forward-looking information and risks” and “Risk factors in our business” in our most recent Annual Information Form & Form 40-F. The reader is directed to carefully review the detailed risk discussion in our most recent Annual Information Form & Form 40-F filed on SEDAR and EDGAR under our Company name, which discussion is incorporated by reference in this release, for a fuller understanding of the risks and uncertainties that affect our business and operations.

The inclusion of forward-looking statements and information is designed to help you understand management’s current views of our near- and longer-term prospects, and it may not be appropriate for other purposes.

There can be no assurance that forward-looking statements or information will prove to be accurate, as actual results and future events could differ materially from those anticipated in such statements. Accordingly, you should not place undue reliance on the forward-looking statements or information contained herein. Except as required by law, we do not expect to update forward-looking statements and information continually as conditions change and you are referred to the full discussion of the Company’s business contained in the Company’s reports filed with the securities regulatory authorities in Canada and the U.S.
