Company Overview

Business Description:
Mount Gibson Iron Limited (MGX) is involved in exploration, development and mining of iron ore in Western Australia. The company has three major projects being: Tallering Peak, Koolan Island and Extension Hill. For FY13, total ore sales were 8.8Mt. The total mineral resources and reserves as of June 2013 stood at 88.6Mt @ 61.9% Fe and 45.2Mt @ 62.1% Fe respectively.

Strategy Analysis:
Mount Gibson seeks to maintain and grow long term profitability through discovery, development, participation and/or acquisition of mineral resources. The aim is to lift and sustain production beyond 10 million tonnes of iron ore a year and to extend life to beyond 15 years through exploration and development and/ore acquisition. Mount Gibson Iron reported NPAT down 71.4% to $37.1m for the half-year ended 31 December 2012. Revenues from ordinary activities were $416.2m, up 10.4% from the same period last year, reflecting lower realised iron ore prices, broader product mix, and early adoption of new waste accounting requirements. Diluted EPS was 3.41 cents compared to 12 cents last year. Net operating cash flow was $43.13m compared to $123.16m last year. The interim dividend declared was 2 cents in line with 2 cents last year.
