Atlas Mining profit doubled in Q1

MANILA, Philippines — Listed Atlas Consolidated Mining and Development Corp. reported a 113-percent surge in its first-quarter net income to P563 million due to buoyant gold prices and higher volume of mineral output.

“The higher income was mainly due to higher revenue as well as higher milling throughput from the mine operations by its wholly-owned subsidiary, Carmen Copper Corporation (CCC),” Atlas Mining said in a disclosure on Monday.

Revenues stood at P5.54 billion, an increase of 12 percent, while the firm’s cash cost, or the expenses paid in cash, went up by 6 percent to P3.4 billion.


Earnings before interest, tax, depreciation, and amortization posted a 26-percent upturn to end at P2.1 billion.


In the three months to March, copper price dropped by 5 percent to $3.83 per pound but gold price rose by 9.7 percent to $2,074 per ounce.
