Operational Performance

Mined metal production was 830,000 tonnes in FY2012 and 223,000 tonnes in Q4 FY2012, compared to 840,000 tonnes and 231,000 tonnes in the corresponding prior period. The marginal decline was due to a temporary decline in ore grade at RA mine, partially offset by higher metal recoveries across all mines and increased production at SK mine. SK mine ramped-up to 80% utilization in Q4 FY2012.
