RevenuesRevenue was US$161.3 million in the third quarter of 2012, on silver equivalent sales of 5.1 million ounces (4.8 million ounces of silver and 6,900 ounces of gold). This represents a 13% decrease from the US$185.2 million of revenue generated in the third quarter of 2011. This was due to a 13% decrease in the realized price per silver equivalent ounce, which was only slightly offset by a 1% increase in the number of silver equivalent ounces sold. The relatively small increase in ounces sold relative to those produced in the quarter was primarily related to the timing of shipments of stockpiled concentrate and doré at some of the mines underlying the Company's silver and precious metal purchase agreements.
