Adamus Resources Limited - 2011 Annual Financial Report

/NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES/

PERTH, Western Australia, Sept. 12, 2011 /CNW/ - Adamus Resources Limited ("Adamus" or the "Company") (ASX and TSXV: ADU) advises that it has lodged its Annual Financial Report for the year ended June 30, 2011, as per its Australian regulatory requirements. A copy of the Annual Financial Report can be found on the SEDAR website at www.sedar.com.

Adamus is starting to see the financial benefits from the commencement of commercial production at its mine in Ghana five months ago. The first quarter of commercial production, commencing 1 April 2011, generated operating cash flows of A$9.2M on commercial gold production of 26,015oz.

Gold production for the financial year ending 30 June 2012 is forecast to be between 100,000 and 105,000 ounces at a forecast cash cost of between US$575 - 600 per oz, indicating ongoing profitable operations.

The 2011 financial year has been a year of transformation for Adamus, with the successful completion of construction and commissioning of the processing plant at the Company's Nzema Gold Project. First gold pour was achieved on 17 January 2011, followed by commencement of commercial production on 1 April 2011.

The successful completion of the project is reflected in the consolidated statement of financial position in the Company's 2011 Annual Financial Report, particularly through the increase in property, plant & equipment of A$69.9M. The drawn Project debt facility of US$60M is also shown in the consolidated statement of financial position, split between current and non current borrowings.

The Group recorded a loss for the 2011 financial year (after providing for income tax) of A$68.0M (2010: A$82.5M loss). This included gross profit of A$9.6M resulting from the first quarter of commercial operations. This was offset by a movement in the non-cash accounting loss on the gold forward hedge contract of A$42.7M (2010: A$76.1M loss) and unrealised foreign exchange ("FX") losses of A$22.1M (2010: A$2.2M profit). FX losses resulted mainly from the revaluation of intercompany loans at balance date. There is currently no intention to seek repayment of the intercompany loans in the short term.

Adamus' Managing Director Mark Connelly said: "At a time of record gold prices, we now look forward to a full year of production for the 2012 financial year."
