“The increased production was primarily due to higher grades, which was due to the improved mine flexibility as a result of the measures taken in previous quarters. The higher gold production resulted in higher revenues and a substantial increase in profit.  Net profit attributable to shareholders in the quarter was US$3.1 million - almost three times higher than the third quarter of 2016 and over four times higher than the preceding quarter.”
