The latest quarter also benefited from the sale of 1,029 ounces which had been retained in December 2019 for control procedures and released in February 2023. Due to political unrest, mostly in Southern Peru, the company postponed exports from mid-January until February, which explains the monthly sales variance.
The company also reported net income of US$4.5 million or US$0.11 per share for the quarter compared to US$5.1 million or US$0.13 per share for the comparable quarter in 2022, as it was impacted by lower grades, global inflation affecting the unit cost of production and by the overall trend in gold market prices.
Dynacor, an international gold ore industrial company, purchases ore from artisanal and small-scale miners which it processes at its Veta Dorada processing plant which is strategically located fifteen minutes off the Pan American Highway near Chala in southern Peru. Thanks to the high level of ore inventory at the beginning of the year and the increasing volume of ore supplied, the mill has been able to process a record high of more than 41,500 tonnes throughout the quarter with an average of 462 tpd.
Dynacor’s 2023 capital budget is set between US$7.0 and US$10.0 million which includes investments at the Veta Dorada plant to increase equipment efficiency, increase tailing pond capacity, additional vehicles for the ore purchase team and administrative and ore purchasing buildings. The company has also budgeted approximately US$1.0 million to advance other projects in other jurisdictions.
The company in forecasting gold sales in the range of US$210 to US$236 million representing a growth of 6.5% to 20% over 2022 sales, which would result in a net income in the range of US$8.5 to US$11.5 million or US$0.20 to US$0.30 per share.
The company pays a monthly dividend, which was increased by 25% at the beginning of 2022 to CDN$0.10 per share annually and increased again January 2023 to CDN$0.12 annually, which represents an annual dividend yield of 3.9% based on current share price.
