Copper production quarter-on-quarter dipped slightly, but grades are expected to pick up
"This is another good quarter's production with a 7% year-on-year increase in the first half compared to 2018,” said Anglo Asian chief executive Reza Vaziri.
“The production in the quarter was slightly less than the previous quarter due to the planned mining of lower grade copper ore, however, we are expecting copper grades to increase for the rest of the year. The logistical issues in selling concentrate reported last quarter were resolved and the company had gross sales of $7.6 million of concentrate in the quarter. The company continues to be a strong cash generator and our net cash increased by $4.6 million in the quarter."
