Midway Gold Corp. (TSX and NYSE-MKT: MDW) (the “Company” or “Midway”) announces financial results for the period ended September 30, 2013. These results were filed today with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission in the Company’s quarterly report on Form 10-Q, and with the relevant securities regulators in Canada.
Gold Rock Project
Spring Valley Project
Results from Operations
The target of reaching production from the Pan project during the second half of 2014 has driven the majority of the Company’s operating expenses, leading to logical expense increases as the Company gets closer to construction on and production from the Pan project. The operating loss of $3,964,571 for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 was primarily due to mineral exploration expenditures of $1,605,572, salaries and benefits of $1,163,197 and legal, audit, and accounting costs of $581,840. Mineral exploration expenditures were driven by permitting activities at the Gold Rock project as well as salaries and labor costs across all the Company’s projects. Salaries and benefits have increased period over period as a result of increased employee headcount at the corporate and field offices. The Company incurred legal, audit and accounting costs primarily related to its graduation to the TSX exchange from the TSX Venture exchange as well as costs for financial advisory services in relation to the investigation of Pan project financing options.
The Company realized other expense of $291,878 in the current quarter related to a loss of $1,259,322 on foreign currency exchange translation, offset by a gain of $988,443 on the change in the fair value of derivative liabilities. As the Company’s stock price fluctuates, it will continue to recognize changes in the fair value of derivative liabilities, thereby resulting in non-cash gains or losses.
The Company’s consolidated net loss attributable to common shareholders for the three months ended September 30, 2013 was $6,411,707, or $0.05 basic and diluted loss per share compared to a loss of $3,515,919, or $0.03 basic and diluted loss per share for the comparable period in 2012.
All amounts are expressed in Canadian dollars, unless otherwise indicated. The financial information is presented in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles.
