Del

$38.5 million at September 30, 2017 in cash and equivalents

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Nov. 14, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sabina Gold & Silver Corp. ("Sabina") or (the "Company") (TSX:SBB) reports the financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2017.

"With the positive recommendation received from the Nunavut Impact Review Board ("NIRB") in July, the third quarter of 2017 saw a milestone de-risking event for the Company," said Bruce McLeod, President & CEO. "While the NIRB report is with the Minister of Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada ("INAC") pending a decision, we have continued to advance the project forward by advancing basic engineering and other site assessment activities at the same time as continuing to drill high impact targets at the Goose property. We are very pleased with the results from both the Umwelt and Llama drilling to date which demonstrate the significant mineral endowment of the property.  We look forward to a Minister's decision, we anticipate could be before the end of the year, and to fully assessing our 2017 drilling to determine the campaign focus for 2018."

Q3 2017 Highlights:

  • The Company had cash and cash equivalents and short-term investments of $38.5 million at September 30, 2017.
  • On July 18, 2017, the NIRB recommended to the Minister of INAC that development of the Company's Back River gold project should proceed to the licensing phase.
  • On September 12, 2017 the Company completed a non-brokered private placement flow-through financing of 2,163,265 common flow-through shares at a price of $2.85 per share for gross proceeds of approximately $6.2 million. The total gross proceeds from the financing must be used to incur Canadian exploration expenditures as defined by the Income Tax Act (Canada) by December 31, 2018.
  • During the quarter, the Company continued with its second phase of drilling at Goose which included 9,868 meters of drilling in 17 holes, including drill hole 17GSE516B at Llama which returned 9.48 g/t au over 38.55 meters, including 14.43 g/t au over 21.25 meters. 
  • Subsequent to the quarter, on October 18, 2017, the Company, jointly with the Kitikmeot Inuit Association ("KIA") announced completion of a binding term sheet for land tenure and Inuit benefits for the Back River Project.  The term sheet sets out the principle terms that are to be included in a definitive Framework Agreement ("FA").  The FA, upon completion would be a comprehensive agreement which would set out rights and obligations with respect to surface land access on Inuit owned land and will include an Inuit Impact and Benefit Agreement ("IIBA") among other obligations required by the Nunavut land claims agreement, including the following key provisions:
  • A 20 year term;
  • Surface access rights for exploration, development, mine construction and mine operations activities;
  • Certain milestone payments including:
    • Annual payment to the KIA of up to $1 million;      
    • Issuance to the KIA of 6.7 million shares of Sabina;
    • Grant to the KIA of a 1% net smelter royalty on future production at Back River;
    • An initial investment of $4 million into regional wealth creation initiatives in the Kitikmeot;
  • For the quarter ended September 30, 2017, the Company reported net loss of $0.5 million or $0.00 per share.

Financial Results

For the three months ended September 30, 2017, the Company reported a net loss of $0.5 million or $0.00 per share, in comparison to a net loss of $3.7 million or $0.02 per share in the corresponding period of 2016.  The difference quarter over quarter was primarily the result of a write-down ($5.2 million) on the Wishbone properties in 2016 and higher finance income in Q3 2017 ($0.7 million) on amortization of flow-through premium associated with the flow-through financing completed in 2017.  Partially offsetting were higher operating and deferred income tax expenses in Q3 2017 than the comparable period.  Q3 2017 operating expenses were $0.5 million higher than the comparable period due to: the higher professional services fees of $0.3 million related to Back River project financing; higher travel expenses of $0.1 million for marketing activities; and, higher stock based compensation resulting from more stock options granted in Q3 2017 than the comparable period. 

For the nine months ended September 30, 2017, the Company reported a net loss of $2.5 million, favourable by $1.6 million compared to the same period of 2016. As noted above, the decrease in loss period over period was mainly due to the result of a write-down of the Wishbone properties and higher operating and deferred income tax expense in 2017 compared to 2016.  Partially offsetting was a higher net gain ($0.6 million) realized on the sale of Pure Gold shares in 2016 compared to 2017.

Meltwater launches data science platform Fairhair.ai to tame real-time market signals found in world’s online data14.8.2018 15:00Pressemelding

AI-powered platform democratises analytics of forward-looking indicators based on insights from the outside, known as Outside Insight SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 14, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- In the quest to become data-driven, companies are increasingly investing in Business Intelligence software to gain a competitive advantage. Yet the insights generated by those tools are mostly fuelled by data from within a company’s walls, instead of the real-time market signals found externally online – from consumer opinions to corporate filings. This outside data can unlock key indicators about an industry or competitor, but harnessing the volume and variety of global data is a time-intensive task. And although advances in artificial intelligence have made it easier to capture and analyse this data to create powerful insights, most commercial AI tools are one-size-fits-all models with limited capabilities. That’s why Meltwater – a pioneer of media intelligence and curator of the world’s most diverse col
