Why? AISC is based on 107 average production. Weekly costs will be pretty consistent - wages, diesel, 3rd party services etc, why would it cost more than £1.54m a week when not at full production?

Darola, once steady state production has been reached then the use of AISC will be appropriate. However, breakeven has not yet been declared so therefore costs must be exceeding revenue currently.

for those not familiar with AISC --------> Use of the "all-in sustaining costs" (AISC) measure of gold production is on the rise, as it provides a more comprehensive look at costs than the traditional "cash cost" approach. The AISC measure, finalized in June and supported strongly by the World Gold Council, includes other expenses such as general office spending and capital used in mine development and production to create a benchmark of a company's operating efficiency. "The economics of gold mining have not been as well understood as they could be by a broad range of people including governments, communities and even employees,” said Terry Heymann of the WGC. Goldcorp was among the first to alter its reporting standards, doing so at the beginning of 2013. The company's 2013 cash costs were forecast at $525 to $575 per ounce, and all-in sustaining cash costs were $1,000 to $1,100. Earnings reports from some of the other big gold companies indicate an AISC of between $1,200 – $1,400/oz, the Financial Times reports. In some cases AISC has even crept up over $1,400. Barrick recently reported an AISC of $919, very much on the lower end of the AISC spectrum. Goldfields checked in at $1,280/oz and African Barrick was up high at $1,416/oz. Not all are in favour of the new measure, however. Randgold CEO Mark Bristow called the measure irrelevant, pointing out that companies could get away with reporting "positive margins between sales price per ounce of production…yet, because of writedowns or impairments, still register losses."

If our AISC on 107k a year average is $750, that equates to $1.54m a week in expenses/costs. So we'd need to be producing 1.2k oz a week to break even, or 60% productivity. As we are now above that I expect us to be cash positive.

UKG correct. During the ramp up phase the cost of production will be more than the revenue received. Thus being cash flow negative until breakeven is achieved. Thereafter cash flow positive.

That's why we use an AISC. The above figures are after costs. I'm still sure the bulk of recent spend is contract milestone payments - timed for the end of the build.

Producing gold is not free......The mine is likely still cash flow negative.

FCF must be up to a run rate of $5m a month by now.132000/12 x 0.85 x 600 and rounded down to nearest million

Not enough to cover the balance of building a $100m mine. 7 weeks production is probably worth around $7m to $10m depending on how well ramp up has gone.

So would they not have sold any of their gold produced yet?

Down to 30m dollars in the bank from 40m around start of production. I wonder where that 10m went?

Another positive was "have around $30M cash"Mr market is obviously waiting for commercial production and possibly a quarter of low cost production.Which although frustrating is understandable and does create a good opportunity to buy when the milestones are met. Time will tell.

An announcement of Commercial production is what we are waiting for. And for that to be declared the plant needs to run above 60% capacity for 60 days. so some time in March imo

Apart from potentially some news on the occasion of Indaba or the president's visit, should we see anything else before the 2017 results in May? Currently still on sidelines but ready to pounce and buy in.
