Northern Star Resources Limited is an Australian Stock Exchange listed compnay (ASX: NST) and the second biggest ASX-listed gold producer with a staggering annual production of 550-600,000 ounces of gold each year. Their sale price for gold averaged about $1,407/oz with estimated production costs of some $1,057 an ounce.
$50 million set aside to find new gold deposits
The dynamic Australian gold mining company independently owns and operates WA gold mines at Paulsens, Plutonic, Kanowna Belle, Kundana (including the East Kundana Joint Venture (NST’s interest: 51%)) and Jundee. Northern Star Resources continue to be very proactive in exploration in WA, with $50 million set aside to find new gold deposits.
Back in 2014, Northern Star Resources went shopping and purchased Jundee, Plutonic, Kundana and Kanowna Belle mines, taking its gold sales to 292,840 oz in the half of 2014, up 50,927 ounces in the same period of 2013.
471 percent revenue growth
Revenue from gold mining for the half of 2014 was 471 per cent higher with a value of $412.1 million.
Northern Star Managing Director Bill Beament said the rise of gold production and the associated cash-flow from it proved to the market that the company had achieved their goals of becoming a well recognised Australian gold mining company, complete with the ability to scale up and compete in a competitive market.
“The increased dividend and rise in the Company`s return on equity from 7 percent to 17.6 percent half-on half are the most important measures of Northern Star`s achievements,”ť Beament said.
Northern Star Resources aims to maintain production at an annual rate of 550,000-600,000 ounces of gold each year at an “all-in sustaining costs” (AISC) of $1,050to $1,100 per ounce.
