Mandalay Resources Corporation Announces Record Financial Results for the Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2012 and Quarterly Dividend

TORONTO, February 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --


Mandalay Resources Corporation ("Mandalay" or the "Company") (TSX: MND) announced today record revenue, EBITDA and earnings per share ("EPS") for the fourth quarter and full year of 2012. Full year revenue, EBITDA and EPS were $171.8 million, $79.9 million and $0.14, respectively. For the fourth quarter of 2012 the Company also achieved record quarterly revenue, EBITDA, and net income of $55.7 million, $28.8 million and $22.4 million ($0.07 per share) respectively. All currency references in this press release are in U.S. dollars except as otherwise indicated.

Mandalay's Board of Directors has declared a quarterly dividend of CDN$0.01 per share, payable on March 14, 2013 to shareholders of record as of March 7, 2013.

Brad Mills, Chief Executive Officer of Mandalay, commented: "Mandalay ended the year with a very strong fourth quarter as both mines produced record saleable volumes. This translated into record financial performance. The Company paid off all remaining debt in the fourth quarter and started returning cash to shareholders in the form of a dividend. We are now focused on the next stages of growth for both projects, specifically the development of the Cuffley lode at Costerfield beginning in mid-year 2013 and the expansion of Cerro Bayo to 1,400 tonnes per day during the first quarter of 2014."

2013 Guidance

Guidance for 2013 remains unchanged.

                                  Total                Cerro Bayo          Costerfield
    Saleable Ag Production 2.8 - 3.1 million oz   2.8 - 3.1 million oz                  -
    Saleable Au Production   36,000 - 42,000 oz     18,000 - 21,000 oz  18,000 - 21,000 oz

    Au Eq Production[1]    112,000 - 123,000 oz


[1]Au Eq. oz produced is calculated by multiplying the saleable quantities of Au, Ag, and Sb in the period by the respective average market prices of the commodities in the period, adding the three amounts to get a "total contained value based on market price", and then dividing that total contained value by the average market price of Au in the period. Average Au price in the period is calculated as the average of the daily LME PM fixes in the period, with price on weekend days and holidays taken from the last business day; average Sb price in the period is calculated as the average of the daily average of the high and low Rotterdam warehouse prices for all days in the period, with price on weekend days and holidays taken from the last business day; average Ag price in the period is calculated as the average of the daily London Broker's silver spot price for all days in the period, with price on weekend days and holidays taken from the last business day. The source for all prices is http://www.metalbulletin.com.

The Company expects that production at Cerro Bayo during the first quarter of 2013 will be affected by the planned partial suspension of processing plant operations to facilitate the installation of processing plant automation equipment. This project is expected to improve recovery of gold and silver at Cerro Bayo in the short to medium term.
