VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/09/12 -- A correction from source has been issued for the news release disseminated on November 9, 2012 at 5:00pm ET for Sabina Gold & Silver Corp. (TSX:SBB). There was a typo in the sixth bullet point, the figure should read $129.1 million rather than $29.1 million. The complete and corrected release follows:
Sabina Gold & Silver Corp. (the "Company") (TSX:SBB) reported today the financial results for the interim period ended September 30, 2012.
Highlights of the quarter include:
-- The Company submitted a Preliminary Project Description on the Back River Gold Project to the Nunavut Water Board, triggering the environmental assessment and permitting process on the project. -- In August, the Company initiated a Prefeasibility Study ("PFS") on Back River. Tetra Tech WEI Inc has been engaged as the lead on the project. Other consultants contributing to the PFS are AMC Consultants Ltd. (geological modeling and mining), Knight Piesold Consultants Ltd., (tailings design, geotechnical and hydrogeology) and Rescan (hydrology and baseline environmental). -- On September 17th, the Company announced the discovery of the shallow Wing Zone between the proposed Llama and Umwelt pits. Further work needs to be done on this prospective discovery. -- The Company announced significant results from its ongoing 2012 exploration programs at Back River in the quarter. Significant assays continued to be returned from Llama and Umwelt and new zones of gold mineralization were reported from drilling at the Boulder Property (located in the corridor between George and Goose) and Fold Forest zones (on the George property). More work is planned on both of these targets. -- One of the best holes of the year was drilled at the Umwelt G2 Zone. Hole 12GSE217 returned 51.93 g/t Au over 16m from the G2 Zone; hole 12GSE191. -- The Company ended the quarter with cash and short-term investments of $129.1 million.
"In the quarter, we continued to have drilling success, including discovery of the Wing Zone near Llama as well has significant good grade, good width incepts from the G2 zone at Umwelt," said Rob Pease, President & CEO. "At the same time we completed baseline and other site work to support the upcoming PFS. Camps closed for the season on October 19, and the team is busy reviewing work and proposing plans and budgets for next year. We look forward to reporting on this to the market in due course."
For the three months ended September 30, 2012, the Company reported a net loss of $4.6 million compared to a loss of $2.6 million in 2011. The loss in Q3 2012 is higher primarily as a result of lower flow-through premium income and higher operating expenses.
The Company had cash and cash equivalents and short-term investments of $129.1 million at September 30, 2012 compared to cash and cash equivalents of $159.9 million at December 31, 2011. It is anticipated that the Company will end the year with approximately $118 million in cash at December 31, 2012.
