Alamos Gold Inc has released a few numbers, forecasting “lower full-year production and higher cash costs as output from its high-grade Escondida deposit in Mexico winds down,” reports Reuters.
“Alamos shares fell as much as 15 percent on the Toronto Stock Exchange as well as the New York Stock Exchange in early trading on Thursday.”
“The miner, which operates in Mexico, Turkey and United States of America, said it expects the Escondida deposit to be depleted by the first quarter of this year.”
“Alamos forecast 2014 production to fall to 150,000-170,000 ounces of gold from 190,000 ounces in 2013.”
