Inca One Gold Reports Calendar Q3 2022 Sales Of US$9.6 Million
VANCOUVER, BC – October 27, 2022 – INCA ONE GOLD CORP. (TSXV:INCA) (OTCQB:INCAF) (Frankfurt:SU92) (“Inca One” or the “Company”) a gold producer operating two mineral processing facilities in Peru, (the “Plants”) reports consolidated sales (unaudited) for the three months of July, August and September 2022 (“Q3 2022” or “the Quarter”) and comparative year-over-year (“YoY”) operational results.
Sales for the Quarter reached US$9.6 million, a 1% decrease YoY compared to Q3 2021 sales of US$9.7 million. Accounting for this slight decrease was a lower price of gold sold in the Quarter, despite an increase in gold production in the period.
The Company also reports quarterly YoY increases in both milling activity of 3% to 17,929 tonnes and gold production of 4% to 6,030 ounces of gold. The Company milled an average of 207 tonnes per day (“TPD”) in the Quarter. Throughput for the Quarter was 46% of plant capacity.
|Consolidated Operations||Q3 2022||Q3 2021||YoY change|
|Gold Production (ounces)||6,264||6,030||4%|
|Sales (US $)||9.6 M||9.7 M||-1%|
Inca One sales in the first nine months of calendar 2022 reached US$39.2 million, increasing by 53% YoY, notably surpassing the Company’s highest-ever annual sales revenues, with three months remaining this calendar year to grow sales further. Accounting for this increase was the higher volume of ore milled, resulting in record gold sales.
“With limited capital available for purchasing gold-bearing mineral this past quarter, the Company has continued to set new yearly production records,” commented Inca One President and CEO, Edward Kelly. “The Company’s main priority going forward is to continue to secure new sources of non-dilutive capital dedicated to ore purchases.”
Trailing 12-month sales have remained steady at approximately US$50 million for a second consecutive quarter. The Company is increasingly focused on operational efficiencies and lowering costs at its two plants during this period.
