Reserves and Resources

The Company ended 2014 with proven and probable gold reserves of 662 million tonnes at 1.22 grams per tonne gold containing 26 million ounces.  The 6.4% decrease in gold reserves was driven by depletion from mining during the year and a pit redesign at Kisladag (which led to a 9% decrease in its proven and probable in-situ gold ounces relative to the 2013 reserves).  The two operations that replaced depletion and added new reserves were White Mountain and Jinfeng.

Review of Annual Financial Results

Gold sales volumes increased 7% year over year, with increases from the Company's Chinese mines and Kisladag offsetting a decrease in sales from Efemcukuru. Total cash costs per ounce increased slightly in 2014 by $6 per ounce to $557, reflecting the Company's ongoing focus on controlling operating costs. Gross profit from gold mining operations of $382.7 million fell 20% year over year on decreasing gross margins as a result of the drop in gold prices to an average realized price of $1,266 per ounce, and an increase in depreciation, depletion and amortization ("DD&A") per ounce sold. The combined DD&A rate increased year over year due to the higher volume of ounces sold in 2014 from Jinfeng and White Mountain, which have higher depreciation rates than the other mines.

Net profit attributable to shareholders of the Company was $102.6 million, or $0.14 per share, compared to a loss attributable to shareholders of the Company of $653.3 million, or $0.91 per share in 2013. The loss in 2013 was mainly due to an impairment loss, net of tax, in the amount of $684.6 million related to Jinfeng and Eastern Dragon, as well as a deferred income tax charge of $125.2 million related to a change in income tax rates in Greece.

Adjusted net earnings were $138.7 million or $0.19 per share (2013: $192.9 million or $0.27 per share), a decrease of $54.2 million year over year. The main factor affecting the adjusted net earnings was the $98.4 million decrease in gross profit from gold mining operations described above. Offsetting this were the following factors: 1) an $18.5 million decrease in exploration costs; 2) an $11.6 million decrease in interest expense related to capitalization of interest on the Company's development projects; and 3) a decrease in tax expense related to lower taxable income. Please see the accompanying Management's Discussion and Analysis for a reconciliation between loss attributable to shareholders of the Company and adjusted net earnings.

Review of Quarterly Financial Results

Net profit attributable to shareholders of the Company for the fourth quarter was $13.9 million, or $0.02 per share as compared to a loss for the quarter ended December 31, 2013 of $687.5 million, or $0.96 per share. The main factors that impacted earnings for the fourth quarter year over year were: 1) the impairment charge, net of taxes, of $684.6 million recorded in 2013; and 2) higher gold sales volumes and lower gold sales prices in the fourth quarter 2014.

2014 Review and 2015 Outlook

TURKEY

Kisladag
Gold production of 311,233 ounces at Kisladag in 2014 was 2% higher year over year mainly as a result of an increase in ore placed on the leach pad. Kisladag placed 17% more total tonnes on the leach pad compensating for a lower head grade than 2013. Cash operating costs of $443 per ounce were higher year over year as a result of the increased volume of ore and operational waste mined, partly offset by the impact of the decline in the Turkish lira on operating costs. Capital expenditures at Kisladag of $41.6 million in 2014 included capitalised waste stripping, and sustaining construction projects.

For 2015, Kisladag is expected to produce between 230,000-245,000 ounces of gold at a cash cost in the $600-650 range. The sustaining capital expenditure for the year is budgeted at $70.0 million.

Kisladag Phase IV Mine Expansion
In June 2014 the Company received a positive Environmental Assessment decision from the Ministry of Environment and Urbanization of Turkey on the Expansion project. Results of the optimization scenario studies undertaken during 2014 indicated an optimum production rate of 20 million tonnes per year of crushed ore, taking into account existing plant capacity and available equipment, as well as the additional accelerated capital costs required for waste stripping and construction of leach pads and waste dumps. Engineering work to support this approach was completed during the year, including the development of detailed design packages. Capital costs incurred in 2014 relating to this expansion were $11.6 million.

The Company opted to defer the completion of the Kisladag Expansion project at year end after taking into account prioritization of capital resources for its other development projects in a period of weaker gold prices.  Over the next two years, the Company has committed to progressing Phase II of the Olympias mine and completing the build of the Skouries gold project, both capital intensive developments in Halkidiki, Greece.  Once the bulk of capital spending for these projects is complete in late 2016, the Company plans to complete the Kisladag Expansion project, with crushed ore throughput ramping up to 20 million tonnes per year beginning in 2018.  Average mine grades in the period 2015-2019 will range between 0.75 and 0.95 grams per tonne.

Kisladag Production Forecast

                               
      2015     2016     2017     2018     2019
Ounces per year     230,000-245,000     235,000-250,000     255,000-270,000     310,000-325,000     375,000-390,000

Efemcukuru
Gold production of 98,829 ounces at Efemcukuru increased 9% year over year as concentrate sales contracts were renegotiated to improve payability. Gold ounces sold were lower due to a drawdown in the high concentrate inventory levels that existed at the end of 2012. Lower cash operating costs were the result of both the impact of the weakening Turkish lira as well as payable gold production. Capital spending of $25.6 million in 2014 included costs related to capitalized underground development, mobile equipment, tailings dam construction, and process improvements.

Exploration drilling programs primarily focused on surface targets at the Efemcukuru mine site. Step-out drilling tested the central and northern parts of the Kokarpinar vein, and an initial phase of drilling was completed on the Dedebag vein, located in the footwall of the Kestane Beleni vein.

For 2015, Efemcukuru is expected to produce 90,000-100,000 ounces of gold at cash costs between $550-600 per ounce. Allocated sustaining capital for 2015 is $25.0 million.

Exploration
The Company's reconnaissance exploration teams advanced early-stage exploration projects at Dolek, Kisladag North and Bambal to drill-ready stage, and conducted project generation work in northern and western Turkey.

CHINA

In mid-2014, the Company announced that it was evaluating the merits of pursuing a potential overseas listing on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange in relation to its Chinese business. With Bank of America Merrill Lynch retained as its sponsor, the Company is progressing with the work involved in the listing requirements.

Jinfeng
Gold production of 168,503 ounces at Jinfeng in 2014 was 37% higher year over year mainly due to a full year's production from the open pit, higher average head grade and higher recovery rate. Production from the open pit in 2013 recommenced mid-year after completion of a push-back. Cash operating costs of $575 per ounce were 22% lower than 2013 due to an increase in production as a result of higher average head grade. Capital expenditures of $16.0 million for the year included capitalized underground development, process plant upgrades, and tailings dam construction.

Jinfeng is expected to produce between 135,000-145,000 ounces of gold at cash costs between $660-700 per ounce in 2015.  Sustaining capital for the year is expected to be $30.0 million.

Tanjianshan
Gold production of 107,614 ounces at Tanjianshan in 2014 was 6% higher year over year mainly due to higher average treated head grade as well as gold-in-circuit inventory drawdown. Cash operating costs of $389 per ounce in 2014 were lower than in 2013 mainly due to lower fuel and reagent costs. Capital expenditures of $5.4 million for the year included capitalized waste stripping and process plant upgrades.

Brownfields drilling programs included additional drilling at Qinlongtan North, step-out drilling at the Xijingou deposit, and testing within-pit targets at Jinlonggou. Underground development commenced late in the fourth quarter 2014 at Qinlongtan North and is scheduled to provide platforms for delineation drilling and further step-out drilling beginning in mid to late 2015.

For 2015, Tajianshan is expected to produce between 90,000-100,000 ounces of gold at a cash cost between $475-500 per ounce.  Sustaining capital for the year is budgeted at $20.0 million.

White Mountain
Gold production of 85,308 ounces at White Mountain in 2014 was 17% higher year over year due to higher average treated head grade, ore throughput and average recovery rate. Cash operating costs per ounce of $617 were 12% lower than 2013 as a result of the higher average treated head grade and recovery rate. In addition, the mine generated cost savings through optimization of backfill operations. Capital expenditures of $20.4 million for the year included capitalized underground development, process plant upgrades, tailings dam construction, and the acquisition of underground mobile equipment.

At the White Mountain mine, underground exploration drilling during 2014 outlined down-dip extensions to the Central and North zones of the main orebody. Additional drilling from both surface and underground stations further defined the high-grade Northern Deeps zone.

For 2015, White Mountain is expected to produce between 70,000-75,000 ounces of gold at a cash cost between $650-690 per ounce at White Mountain.  The sustaining capital for the year is budgeted at $20.0 million.

Eastern Dragon
Eastern Dragon continued on care and maintenance during 2014, pending resolution of permitting issues.  Site management worked with local authorities to maintain permits and environmental compliance in good standing. Based on discussions with local and national authorities, the EIA was resubmitted during the year. Capital costs incurred at Eastern Dragon totalled $0.7 million.

Receipt of the Project Permit Approval is expected during 2015, allowing the Company to complete the outstanding waste rock dump, tailings dam construction and initial pre-stripping.  Commissioning is included in the Company's 2015 forecast of between 5,000-10,000 ounces of gold at cash costs between $100-125 per ounce.

Exploration
Brownfields and in-mine exploration programs were the exploration focus in China during 2014.

GREECE

The Company, and the mining industry generally, face turbulence in the evolving economic, social and political landscape.  This turbulence is presently being experienced in Greece.  Despite this backdrop, the Company continues to operate its normal business, actively engaging all stakeholders and confidently responding and adapting to the evolving environment.

Eldorado now directly employs over 2,000 persons in Greece, with in excess of 5,000 direct and indirect jobs attributable to Eldorado's investment.  Investments in 2015 will continue to result in further increases in employment levels and significant ancillary benefits to the local communities and the economy of Greece.

Skouries
During 2014, work at Skouries was primarily focused on advancing engineering and procurement, as well as opening major work fronts on the construction site. Engineering design work progressed over the year with designs over 80% complete by year end. Major earthworks continued in the process plant area and foundations for the SAG, Ball and Regrind Mills were completed and the mills were installed to various stages of completion. Pre-stripping commenced in the open pit, and over 500,000 cubic meters of topsoil and overburden were removed in advance of open pit mining. The engineering design was completed for the Tailings Management Facility, and initial earthworks, including a road to access the base of the tailings dam commenced.

A scoping level study for the development of the Skouries underground mine was completed during 2014 and results of the study confirmed that sub-level open stoping is the preferred method of mining the deposit. A prefeasibility study, to be completed during 2015, is expected to further define the production profile and infrastructure required for the underground operation. During 2014 a total of $108.2 million was spent on Skouries, excluding capitalized exploration and capitalized interest.

Development capital for 2015 at Skouries is expected to be approximately $200.0 million.

Olympias
In 2014, the Olympias plant retreated 625,345 tonnes of tailings at a grade of 2.70 grams per tonne.  In 2014, 17,737 ounces of gold in concentrate were produced. New mine development and underground refurbishment continued at Olympias during 2014 and approximately 20% of the planned 8.0 kilometer tunnel is now complete. Capital costs incurred in 2014 were $68.5 million, excluding capitalized exploration and capitalized interest.

2015 production from the tailings rehabilitation is expected to be between 20,000-25,000 ounces of gold.  Capital spending for the year is expected to be $110.0 million. Conceptual designs were prepared for conversion of the process concentrator from retreating tailings material to handling run of mine ore as planned for Phase II. Implementation of Phase II is scheduled to begin during 2015 with underground mining on Phase II projected to begin in 2016.

Stratoni
Stratoni processed 2% fewer ore tonnes in 2014 than 2013 due to lower mine output as a result of fewer production faces in the underground mine. Concentrate tonnes produced were 2% lower than 2013, which was a direct result of lower mill throughput. Tonnes of concentrate sold were 3% lower than 2013 due to lower production, however, this reduction was offset by higher zinc prices which resulted in an increase in concentrate revenues year over year. Capital expenditures of $5.0 million for the year included upgrades to health, safety and environment equipment, upgrades to the water treatment plant, and equipment upgrades in the mine.

In 2015, the Company expects to process 190,000 tonnes of ore at grades of 6.6% lead, 9.3% zinc and 184 grams per tonne silver.  Sustaining capital for the year is budgeted at $6.0 million.

Perama Hill
During 2014, a front end engineering design study for Perama Hill was completed. A design for the access roads, power supply and enabling works was also completed to allow for quick start-up upon receipt of the Environmental Impact Assessment. In 2014, a total of $6.8 million was spent on the Perama Hill project.

In the Perama District, completion of the Glory Resources acquisition in early 2014 added the Sapes project to the Company's project portfolio. Exploration at Sapes during the year consisted of geological mapping of the large alteration system hosting and surrounding the deposit, and reinterpretation of the geological model for the Viper Zone.

Exploration

During 2014, 6,500 metres of drilling were completed at the Piavitsa Project in Halkidiki, Greece. Most of this drilling targeted gaps in the existing drill coverage. The deposit has now been defined over a 2.5 kilometer strike length along the mineralized Stratoni Fault zone. At Tsikara, adjacent to the Skouries deposit, fieldwork was directed towards identifying porphyry drill targets.

BRAZIL

Vila Nova
Vila Nova processed slightly fewer tonnes at the same grade year over year. Iron ore sales were 12% higher than in 2013 as a result of increased shipments in the first half of the year. Iron ore prices declined throughout the year, ending the year below the net realizable value of Vila Nova's inventory, resulting in an inventory write-down of $13.5 million for the year. As a result, a decision was made during the fourth quarter of 2014 to place the mine on care and maintenance. Iron ore shipments are scheduled to continue through mid-2015 until existing iron ore stockpiles are depleted.

Tocantinzinho
A detailed review and optimisation of the feasibility study for Tocantinzinho was carried out in 2014.  Significant improvements to the project were realized in the areas of offsite infrastructure costs and reduced taxes which reduced projected capital expenditures for the project. A decision on the project has been deferred pending availability of capital resources. Capital costs incurred at Tocantinzinho in 2014 totalled $4.3 million and were spent on engineering and site works to advance the design of the access road to the site.

Drilling at Tocantinzinho further defined geological resources contained within historical tailings overlying the main deposit. A first-pass drilling program was completed on the approximate 6.0 kilometer long copper-gold anomaly at Santa Patricia, located on the northern part of the Tocantinzinho license area.

Exploration
During 2014, exploration programs in Brazil drill-tested early stage projects at Goldfish, Anicuns, and Rubens Zilio.

ROMANIA

Certej
In April 2014 the Company filed a National Instruments 43-101 Technical Report on the Certej project, including the findings of an updated prefeasibility study. The study was based on revised mineral resources and new data from metallurgical test work. The study identified a number of opportunities to improve the economic performance of the project, which are now being incorporated into a full feasibility study to be released in 2015. During 2014 a total of $12.2 million was spent at Certej, mainly on geotechnical and metallurgical testing, site preparation and engineering studies.

During 2015, the Company expects to spend approximately $25.0 million at Certej, primarily on land acquisition, the feasibility study and site development costs.

Exploration
Exploration drilling was completed during the year at the Bocsa, Magura, Muncel, Brad and Deva projects, all of which are situated in the Apuseni district near the Certej deposit. The team also completed re-logging 105,000 metres of Certej drill core, the results of which form the basis for an updated geological interpretation and resource model for the deposit.

1)   Mineral reserves and mineral resources are as of December 31, 2014.
2)   Mineral reserves are included in the mineral resources.
3)   The mineral reserves and mineral resources are disclosed on a total project basis.
4)   The Olympias mineral reserves and mineral resources include 1.230 million tonnes of economically recoverable old tailings that grade 3.4 g/t Au.  These are added into the gold Proven reserve and Measured resource categories, respectively.
     
Mineral Reserve Notes
1)   Gold price used was $1,250/oz except for the Skouries underground project which used $1,000.  Silver price was $16.50/oz.  Copper price was $3.00/lb.  Pb and Zn prices were $2,100/t and $2,100/t, respectively.
2)   Cut-off grades (gold g/t):   Kisladag:  0.27 to 0.32 g/t sulphide;  Efemcukuru: 3.5 g/t;  Perama:  0.8 g/t;  Tanjianshan:  1.53 g/t JLG sulphide, 1.33 g/t JLG transition, 1.36 g/t QLT South; Jinfeng:  0.6 g/t open pit, 2.3g/t underground;  White Mountain:  1.5 g/t;  Eastern Dragon:  1.0 g/t open pit, 1.7g/t underground;  Tocantinzinho: 0.41 g/t sulphide, 0.43 g/t oxide; Skouries: $10.00 NSR  open pit,   $24.87 NSR  underground; Olympias: $76.00 NSR.  Cut-off grade for Stratoni is based on a 18.02% Zn Equivalent grade (=Zn%+Pb%*1.39+Ag%*85).  Cut-off grade for Certej is based on a 0.90 g/t Au Equivalent grade (=Au(g/t)+Ag(g/t)*0.00811).
