Sierra Metals Inc. (SMTS) just recently specified revenue of $64.6 M and adjusted EBITDA of $21.6 M on throughput of 709,461 tonnes and metal production of 4.9 M silver equivalent ounces, or 32.3 M copper comparable pounds, or 80.4 M zinc comparable pounds for the three month duration ended September 30, 2019.
The Company attained record quarterly combined equivalent metal production and ore throughput, in addition to record quarterly ore throughput and comparable metal production from the Yauricocha and Bolivar Mines. The Company has actually continued to build on its successful plant expansions, and mine production boosts in Mexico over the last three quarters. This has resulted in record quarterly metal production, as the Company is approaching its 2019 target of 4,250 tonnes per day (TPD) at Bolivar, and 1,200 TPD at Cusi.
The Company made incomes of $64.6 M, Adjusted EBITDA of $21.6 M, and operating capital before motions in working capital of $21.8 M. Higher revenues are primarily attributable to the 8% increase in throughput, greater head grades and healings of all metals, other than zinc healings, at Yauricocha; a 46% increase in throughput, and greater silver and gold head grades, and higher copper and silver recoveries at Bolivar; and the 28% boost in throughput, greater gold head grades and silver and gold recoveries, greater silver costs, and the sale of concentrate inventory built-up throughout H1 2019 at Cusi. Quarterly profits at Yauricocha increased by 16%, and Bolivar increased by 23% contrast to Q3 2018, regardless of reductions in the prices of copper (6%) and zinc (7%), and higher treatment and refining charges sustained on the zinc and copper concentrates offered.
Despite the decline in copper prices over the last 9 months, the Bolivar Mine was able to create $0.9 M of Adjusted EBITDA during Q3 2019, helped by record quarterly throughput. The Company wishes to increase throughput at Bolivar to 4,250 TPD throughout Q4 2019, and after that to 5,000 TPD throughout Q4 2020, while decently enhancing copper grades to about 0.95%Because of a foreseeable mix of 40% of ore sourced from Bolivar West, and 60% from El Gallo Inferior.

Ore throughput reached about 805 TPD during Q3 2019, and the Company continues to work towards reaching the 1,200 TPD mark during Q4 2019.

Currently, the Company remains focused on increasing the effectiveness of mining the mineralized silver structures utilizing selective mining methods with the goal to minimize dilution. The Company believes that this strategy can be effective, given the higher-grade more accessible on the 1704 and 1720 levels of the Santa Rosa de Lima zone, and the substantial financial investment that has actually been made to ramp to and develop these locations for mining.
