● Approximately 50% of gold production is expected to occur in the fourth quarter.
● The projected capital expenditures, excluding capitalized stripping, are estimated to be $85 million.
● Capitalized stripping costs in the Central Pit are expected to be approximately $191 million.
Michael Fischer, President of KOC and KGC, stated, “We are delighted to state that despite all the problems, the 2013 gold production guidance was achieved. In 2014, the planned mining sequence at Kumtor will be very much the same as it was in 2013 with approximately 50% of Kumtor’s gold production occurring in the fourth quarter. Nevertheless, we should maintain the current high pace of work, and I am certain that we’ll achieve successfully the planned gold production guidance of 550,000 to 600,000 ounces.”
