Trading Update: Caledonia

Caledonia Mining Corporation achieved a revenue of US$41.2 million in the 3-months period to 30 September 2023, which is a record performance. Cumulative year-to-date (9-months) revenue reached US$107.7 million. However, EBITDA for the quarter was 2.5% down from US$15.9 million in 2022 to US$15.5 million. Due to high cost per ounce at the Bilboes oxide mine, which has subsequently been placed on care and maintenance, consolidated on-mine cost per ounce for the quarter rose to US$928 from US$734 per ounce. All-in sustaining cost at Blanket mine for the Quarter was US$1,171 per ounce, up from US$962 in 2022, owing to the higher on-mine cost per ounce and higher sustaining capital expenditure and administrative expenses. The Group reported that it produced 21,772 ounces of gold in the quarter under review, 3% up from 21,120 ounces in 2022. As a highlight, 1,151 ounces of gold were produced from the Bilboes oxide mine in the Quarter, indicating an increase from the 1,076 ounces produced in the second quarter of 2023. Caledonia said Oxide mining will resume when the stripping of the waste for the sulphide project commences.
