Mr. Paul Conibear, President and CEO commented, "Our operations performed reliably and in line with plan during the first quarter. We have improved cash cost guidance at both Eagle and Neves-Corvo, and reconfirm the production outlook for the year. The Company's cash position now stands at over $2.0 billion, reflecting the nearly $214 million of cash generated during the first quarter, in addition to proceeds from the sale of Tenke received in April.
We remain focused on value creation and disciplined in our approach to investment opportunities both on our own assets and externally. Expansion studies and projects are advancing at all of our operations, and most notably a final Feasibility Study on our Neves-Corvo Zinc Expansion Project, expected to approximately double current zinc production, is on track to be delivered very soon with an expectation of fast tracking this significant value added project."
