Sales revenue in the quarter also dropped 12% to US$307million, due to a 14% reduction in gold sales to 157,000 ounces, and a 26% fallin silver sales to 6.5 million ounces. Copper sales totaled 131 tonnes.

In the first half of the year, output was down 8% year overyear to 522,000 gold equivalent ounces, in line with the production plan.
