General Moly, Inc. (the "Company") (NYSE MKT and TSX: GMO), a U.S.-based molybdenum mineral development, exploration and mining company, announced its unaudited financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2013. Net loss for the three months ended June 30, 2013 was $14.3 million ($0.16 per share), compared to a loss of $2.7 million ($0.03 per share) for the year ago period. The primary reason for the $14.3 million net loss during the second quarter was an $11.5 million non-cash charge relating to the May 14, 2013 warrant cancellation associated with the mutually terminated $125 million subordinated debt agreement between the Company and Hanlong (USA) Mining (“Hanlong”).
Excluding restricted cash, the Company’s cash balance at June 30, 2013 was approximately $35 million compared to $68 million at December 31, 2012 and $57 million at March 31, 2013. During the second quarter, cash use of $24 million was the result of Mt. Hope Project development costs (site clearing and grubbing, pipeline development, cultural clearance and engineering) as well as general and administrative expenses partially offset by the receipt of $2 million in contribution payments from POS-Minerals Corporation. In December 2012, the Company and POS-Minerals, as members of Eureka Moly, LLC (“EMLLC”), agreed to hold $36 million of the approximately $100 million received from POS-Minerals’ December, 2012 contributions in a reserve account to maintain additional liquidity until the Company arranges full project financing.
Bruce D. Hansen, Chief Executive Officer of General Moly, said, "We have spent the past few months in discussions with a number of potential strategic partners and investors as we explore a variety of financing alternatives including equity investments, project level investments and debt financings to determine which would provide the best outcomes for our shareholders in the current market.”
Mr. Hansen added, “While we expect the financing process to take time, the Company has received interest from potential strategic investors both in and outside of China. Multiple parties have signed non-disclosure agreements and are currently engaged in due diligence on the project.”
