TORONTO, Nov. 29, 2012 /CNW/ - NWM Mining Corporation (the "Company" TSX-V: NWM) is pleased to report an operating profit of $21,003 (net income $881,003) for the quarter ended September 30, 2012.

Q3. 2012 highlights:

  • Gold and silver revenues during the quarter amounted to $7,175,710.
  • The Company produced 4,329 ounces of gold in the third quarter.
  • Pre-stripping was completed during the quarter on a number of key areas of the mine.
  • The strip ratio rose to 3.27:1 as the company completed waste stripping on the pit extension and in areas that were required to have over burden removed prior to accessing mineable ores. The Life of Mine strip ratio for Lluvia de Oro is just under 1.4:1 and the waste to ore stripping ratio will revert towards the Life of Mine average in subsequent quarters which is expected to improve the economics of mining going forward.

"We are pleased with the results of the third quarter of commercial gold production at Lluvia de Oro. NWM remained profitable despite undertaking a significant amount of waste stripping. A reversion to lower strip ratios in subsequent quarters will assist in yielding higher profitability going forward. The waste to ore stripping ratio for the quarter averaged 3.27:1 where the Life of Mine average for Lluvia de Oro is closer to1.4:1," stated Chris Berlet, CEO of NWM.

NWM is an emerging gold producer with two currently defined ore bodies containing NI 43-101 compliant gold reserves and resources. The Company is focused on demonstrating profitable operations at the Lluvia de Oro and La Jojoba gold mines, and on growing reserves and resources through exploration.
