Gold mining – Newcrest Mining posts a half year profit of $187 million

Gold Mining

Gold mining giant, Newcrest Mining, have just released their half yearly financial report which is proof that the mining industry has lifted in leaps and bounds. Recording a statutory profit of $187 million and an underlying profit of $273 million, the company has taken advantage of the increased realised gold price, higher copper and gold sales volumes, and lower operating costs.

As the largest gold producer listed on the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX) and one of the world’s leading gold mining companies, Newcrest Mining have set high near, medium and long-term performance targets to ensure this continued success.

Future looks bright for Gold Mining

With Newcrest reporting a $210 million increase on their underlying profit from the previous period predominately due to an increase in copper and gold mining sales volumes, the future is certainly looking bright for mining in Australia.

  • There was a 15% rise in gold prices, which mean gold revenue was 16 per cent higher than the previous period, reaching $1552 million
  • Cadia was able to increase gold production by 31 per cent, which helped increase the sales volume
  • The copper sales volume at the Cadia and Telfer operations saw the companies copper revenue ruse by 22%
