London, United Kingdom, 30 August 2016 - Nord Gold SE (“Nordgold” or the “Company”, LSE: NORD), the internationally diversified low-cost gold producer, announces a 29% increase in net profit to US$53.1 million in Q2 2016 compared with Q1 2016.

  • EBITDA (1) in Q2 2016 flat QoQ at US$118.8 million. EBITDA was US$238.1 million in H1 2016.
  • Refined gold production in Q2 2016 increased by 2% QoQ to 213.1 thousand gold equivalent ounces (“koz”). H1 2016 gold output was 422.6 koz.
  • All-in sustaining costs (1) (“AISC”) was US$878/oz in H1 2016 and US$930/oz in Q2 2016.

  • Nordgold reiterates its FY 2016 AISC guidance of US$800/oz — US$850/oz based on an expected stronger H2 2016 operational performance.
  • Nordgold reduces 2016 full year production guidance to 880-930 from 950 — 1,010 koz due to lower than planned production in H1 2016 at our flagship Bissa and Berezitovy mines as well as anticipated suspension of production at Aprelkovo in H2 2016.

“We delivered a solid financial performance in the second quarter, with net profit up sharply while we have also reduced our net debt. We have remained focused on increasing efficiency at our operational assets with the launch of our HiTeCC technology at Suzdal and pushing ahead with the development of our pipeline with the imminent launch of our Bouly mine in Q3 this year. While we have trimmed our full year production target after a lower than forecast first half, we still expect to achieve our AISC guidance of US$800/oz — US$850/oz. Nordgold is in a strong position to take advantage of improvements in market conditions with our portfolio of high-quality mines, a strong development pipeline of significant growth opportunities and a proven operational and financial track record. I am confident our company will continue to generate consistent growth for the benefit of its shareholders.” Nikolai ZelenskiChief Executive Officer of Nordgold
