"Net earnings and cash flow were affected by lower copper prices, although improved from the first quarter of 2013 on higher volumes sold," said Darren Pylot, President and CEO of Capstone.

"Activities related to the purchase of BHP Billiton's Pinto Valley mine continue to advance. In the second quarter the transaction received U.S. Federal antitrust approval, the Pinto Valley mine met the operating condition precedent for the transaction and Capstone filed a National Instrument 43-101 compliant technical report for 968 million tonnes of Measured and Indicated Mineral Resource. The transaction is expected to close following transfer of the operating permits, currently expected to occur near the end of the third quarter," continued Mr. Pylot.
