AuRico Reports Second Quarter Financial Results

Due to the lower metal price environment currently being experienced, the Company's second quarter net earnings were adjusted by $104.9 million, net of taxes, for non-cash impairments and revaluations.  Of that amount, $80 million, net of tax, is related to an impairment charge associated with the El Chanate mine. This impairment charge was related to a reduction in the estimated short and long-term metal prices used in life-of-mine plans, and was charged entirely against goodwill.  The Company also determined that an impairment charge of $16.5 million, net of tax, was required for the retained interest royalty in the future life-of-mine free cash flows of the Fosterville and Stawell mines, which were disposed of in 2012.  The remaining $8.4 million, net of tax, is related to net realizable value adjustments for heap leach and long-term, low-grade stockpile inventories.
