  • The revenue for the 4Q and year 2020 increased by 43% and 61% respectively compared to 4Q and year 2019 due to a higher average sales price as well as the increase in sales volumes as a result of the start of sales of gold produced at Nasedkino deposit in the 2nd half of 2020.
  • The gold production in 2020 was 51.6k ounces, which represents a 16% increase in comparison with the previous year, due to start of production at Nasedkino deposit.

    The production volume in 2020 was 5.2k ounces, which is 66% less than in the same period of the preceding year. In 4Q of 2020 0.4k ounces of gold were produced. The decrease is related to the completion of the deposit development.

    TCC for 2020 increased by 6% as compared to TCC for 2019 and by 33% in the 4Q 2020 compared to 4Q 2019 mainly due to the decrease of sales while the fixed cost component remained at the same level.
