Buenaventura Announces Second Quarter 2012 Results

Costs applicable to sales (CAS) at Yanacocha in 2Q12 were US$488/oz, 13% lower than the figure reported in 2Q11 (US$564/oz) due to higher production and lower mining costs, partially offset by higher workers' participation costs and lower by-product credits. Net income at Yanacocha in 2Q12 was US$198.3 million, a 33% increase compared to the 2Q11 figure (US$149.1 million). Accumulated net income in the first six-month period 2012 was US$400.3 million, 54% higher than in 2011 (US$259.8 million).

During 2Q12, EBITDA totaled US$375.3 million, a 32% increase compared to 2Q11 (US$284.0 million). This increase was mainly due to an 18% increase in revenues (US$615.4 million in 2Q12 vs. US$520.2 million in 2Q11). Accumulated EBITDA in the first six-month period 2012 was US$739.2 million, 55% higher than 2011 (US$477.7 million).

During 2Q12, Cerro Verde reported net income of US$173.9 million, a 49% decrease when compared to US$343.3 million in 2Q11.

Accumulated net income in the first six-month period 2012 was US$406.1 million, 43% lower than US$710.9 million in 2011.
