Centinela Announces Earnings and Production Results for the Full Year Ended December 31, 2014; Provides Production and Capital Expenditure Guidance for 2015

Centinela announced earnings results for the full year ended December 31, 2014. The operating profit at the company in 2014 was $464.4 million, compared with $845.0 million in 2013, reflecting higher net cash costs and lower realised copper prices, partly offset by increased sales volumes of concentrates. Capital expenditure in 2014 was $535.6 million, including approximately $330 million in respect of optimisation and development projects. Copper production decreased by 3.9% to 266,600 tonnes in 2014 compared with 2013, due mainly to lower cathode production. Copper in concentrate production in 2014 was 172,800 tonnes, a 1.2% decrease compared with 2013, reflecting a decrease in throughput, partially offset by higher grades and recoveries. Gold production in 2014 was 204,400 ounces compared with 237,100 ounces in 2013, due to lower grades and recoveries and slightly decreased throughput. Copper cathode production was 93,800 tonnes compared with the 102,600 tonnes produced in 2013. This was primarily due to lower copper grades and recoveries following the completion of mining activities at the higher-grade Mirador pit in 2013, partially offset by higher throughput. The average ore grade decreased to 1.31% in 2014 from 1.52% in 2013. Throughput at the plant from the heap-leach operation averaged 25,200 tonnes per day in 2014, compared with 21,300 tonnes per day in 2013. Total capital expenditure in 2015 is expected to be approximately $680 million, including $380 million related to the construction of the Encuentro Oxides and Molybdenum Plant projects. The forecast for 2015 is for production of approximately 255,000 tonnes of payable copper and 195,000 ounces of gold. This forecast is based on an increase in throughput at the concentrator plant, as the benefits of the optimisation and expansion will be seen progressively from mid-2015. This will be offset by a decrease in cathode production compared with 2014, as grades decline at the pits being mined, and this decline will continue until the Encuentro Oxides project starts production in 2016.
