TORONTO, Nov. 03, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- McEwen Mining Inc. (NYSE:MUX) (TSX:MUX) is pleased to announce consolidated quarterly production of 36,496 gold equivalent ounces (1), comprised of 24,281 ounces gold and 916,168 ounces silver. For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016, the Company reported net income of $4.2 million (2) or $0.01 per share and $25.5 million or $0.09 per share, respectively. Earnings from mining operations (3) were $18.9 million and $57.7 million over the same periods. Net income for the three months ended September 30, 2015 was $2.6 million or $0.01 per share and net loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 was $5.5 million, or $0.02 per share. For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016, the Company generated $4.9 million and $24.4 million of net cash flow from operations, respectively. We ended the third quarter of 2016 with liquid assets (3) of $62.5 million composed of cash of $38.8 million, precious metals of $16.6 million and marketable securities of $7.1 million. The Company has no debt, and has not done any financings, sold any metal streams, royalties, or hedges against precious metals. As at October 31, 2016 we had liquid assets of $60.3 million. Our 2016 production guidance remains 99,500 gold ounces and 3.3 million silver ounces, or approximately 144,000 gold equivalent ounces. However, we are reducing our original guidance for total cash costs and all-in sustaining costs ("AISC") from $780 and $935 per gold equivalent ounce, respectively, to $700 and $860. This is attributable to the reduced cost levels at the El Gallo Mine in the first nine months, which we expect to continue for the rest of this year. In addition, the Company announces the promotion of Xavier Ochoa from Chief Operating Officer to President and Chief Operating Officer, effective immediately. Simultaneously, the Company announces the departure of its former President, Colin Sutherland.
