Inca One Reports US$13.2 Million Sales in Calendar Q3 2023
VANCOUVER, BC – October 24, 2023 – 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) and comparative operational results for the three month period of July, August and September 2023 (“Q3 2023” or the “Quarter”).
Sales revenue in the Quarter was US$13.2 million, a 97% increase over the prior quarter (US$6.7 million) and a 38% increase over the same quarter last year. Contributing to the increase was a higher number of exports in this three-month period and an increase in total ounces produced despite a lower price of gold received over the Quarter (US$1,934.08 per ounce) versus the prior second quarter (US$1,990.49).
|Consolidated Operations||Q3 2023||Q2 2023||QoQ change|
|Sales (US$)||13.2 M||6.7 M||97%|
|Gold Produced (Ounces)||5,872||5,469||7%|
Deliveries of mineral bearing feedstock to the Plants reached 13,239 tonnes over the Quarter, a 12% decrease from Q2 2023.
The Company operated at 159 tonnes per day (“TPD”) over the three-month period indicating approximately 291 tonnes of capacity available for increasing production.
“I am extremely pleased to see such a productive quarter with sales doubling over the prior three months,” reflected Edward Kelly, President and CEO of Inca One. “Our Peruvian team has operated very efficiently given the cash constraints facing us this year. We maintain discussions with prospective funding groups with a goal to secure a long-term funding arrangement that will help fill our excess capacity.”
