Company Overview

Business Description:
Medusa Mining Ltd (MML) is an Australian based gold producer, focusing on projects in the Philippines. MML’s flagship project is the Co-O project.

Strategy Analysis:
MML's strategy is to become a mid tier 300,000 to 400,000oz per year, low cost gold producer. The Company is currently expanding its high grade Co-O Mine operations to increase its production capacity to 100,000oz per year, and is conducting near mine exploration to assess the possibilities of further expansion to 200,000oz per year. Medusa Mining reported NPAT up 19% to US$28.6m for the half-year ended 31 December 2012. Revenues from ordinary activities were US$52.36m, up 28% from the same period last year due to a marginal increase in both gold production and a higher average price received on the sale of gold. Basic and Diluted EPS was 0.152 US cents compared to 0.127 US cents last year. Net operating cash flow was US$54.86m compared to US$28.04m last year. No interim dividend was declared, compared with 5.0 AU cents last year. The revised forecast gold production for the fiscal year to 30 June 2013 after taking into account current year to date production of 32,580 is now between 80,000 to 90,000 ounces at anticipated cash costs of US$250 per ounce.
