TSX: ELD NYSE: EGO

VANCOUVER, May 11, 2016 /CNW/ - Eldorado Gold Corporation, ("Eldorado" or "the Company") is pleased to announce the Company's financial and operational results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2016.  Eldorado reported gold production of 140,989 ounces (2015: 189,414 oz) at an average cash operating cost of $603 per ounce (2015: $521/oz).  Adjusted net loss for the quarter was $0.7 million ($0.00 per share) compared to net earnings of $19.5 million ($0.03 per share) in 2015.

"We have completed another consistent quarter with our operations performing to plan and we remain on track to achieve our guidance for the year", stated Paul Wright, President and Chief Executive Officer of Eldorado.

"During the first four months of the year we have focused on moving forward with the value maximization exercise for our Chinese portfolio and progressing development of our Greece portfolio. I am pleased to report that we announced the agreement to sell our interest in our Jinfeng mine for $300 million in late April. Additional work on the remaining group of Chinese assets is ongoing. Our progress in Greece continues to make headway, demonstrated by the receipts of the Skouries Technical Study and building permit, and the Olympias Phase II installation permit. Productive discussions continue with the Greek Minister of Environment and Energy.

As we head into the second half of the year with an even stronger balance sheet, we are well positioned to focus on developing our robust project pipeline."

Review of Quarterly Financial Results

Loss attributable to shareholders of the Company was $2.5 million (or $nil per share) for the quarter compared with a loss of $8.2 million (or $0.01 per share) in the first quarter of 2015. Gold sales volumes fell 27% year on year along with slightly lower gold prices, resulting in a 29% drop in gold revenues. Cash operating costs per ounce increased 14% year on year, while gross profit from gold mining operations fell 47%.

In comparison with 2015, there were a number of items that partially offset the impact of the fall in gold mining profits. Foreign exchange movements contributed favorably to the bottom line as the Company reported a foreign exchange gain of $3.2 million as compared with a foreign exchange loss of $10.2 million in the first quarter of 2015. Additionally, tax expense of $5.3 million was lower year on year due to, among other things, $4.2 million in deferred tax recoveries as compared with $21.5 million in deferred tax expense in 2015 related to changes in the tax base due to foreign exchange. General and administrative expenses fell 28%, or $4.7 million as a result of cost cutting measures and foreign currency movements.

Review and 2016 Outlook

TURKEY

Kisladag

Gold production of 52,376 for the quarter was 34% lower mainly due to significant leach pad inventory drawdown in the prior year. Cash operating costs of $536 per ounce were 3% higher year on year.  Capital expenditures of $7.0 million for the quarter included costs for capitalized waste stripping, metallurgical and resource drilling, and construction projects that include a 154 kV powerline, a new overland conveyor and leach pad construction.

Engineering work progressed during the quarter on optimization of process circuits associated with a potential expansion of mine throughput. The detailed engineering packages for the crushing and screening circuits were completed, and the electrical and instrumentation designs are underway.  A final review of the optimization plan is expected to be completed in the second quarter.

Efemcukuru

Gold production of 27,516 ounces for the quarter was 30% higher year on year. Cash operating costs of $478 per ounce were 21% lower due to increased head grade, higher mill throughput and continued cost reduction initiatives. Capital expenditures of $4.8 million included underground development, mine equipment overhauls, and process and waste rock/tailings facilities construction projects.

CHINA

In 2014 the Company announced that it was evaluating value maximizing alternatives for its group of Chinese assets.  Subsequent to the first quarter end, on April 26, 2016, the Company announced that it had reached an agreement to sell its 82 percent interest in Jinfeng to a wholly-owned subsidiary of China National Gold Group for US$300 million in cash, subject to certain closing adjustments. The transaction is expected to close in the third quarter 2016 and is subject to obtaining various regulatory approvals and other customary closing conditions. The Company continues to advance this process for the remaining Chinese assets.

Jinfeng

As per guidance gold production of 25,935 ounces at Jinfeng was 29% lower year over year mainly as a result of lower average treated head grade, lower recovery and less ore milled. Cash operating costs of $726 per ounce were 40% higher year on year mainly due to lower gold production. Capital expenditures of $0.1 million for the quarter were primarily spent on underground development.

White Mountain

Gold production of 18,335 ounces at White Mountain was an expected 12% lower year over year due to reduced head grade and gold in-circuit inventory fluctuations. Cash operating costs of $582 per ounce were 3% lower year on year as a result of the lower average treated head grade. Capital expenditures of $4.1 million for the quarter included underground development, resource development, resource drilling and sustaining capital projects within the processing plant.

Tanjianshan

As expected, gold production of 14,053 ounces at Tanjianshan was 47% lower year over year mainly due to reduced head grade and lower recoveries. Head grade is expected to improve over the remainder of the year.  Cash operating costs of $852 per ounce were higher as a result of the decrease in gold production.

Eastern Dragon

Permitting at Eastern Dragon continued to move forward with support from the various government agencies involved. The conversion of the Exploration License to a Mining License is progressing with formal acceptance of the application by the Ministry of Land and Resources on March 1, 2016.  With this milestone achieved, the Company expects to receive an approved Mining License during the second quarter, enabling commencement of the remaining construction activities that are required to move into production.

GREECE

Stratoni

Concentrate production for the first quarter of 2016 was lower year on year due to lower ore tonnes processed and lower lead and zinc head grades. Plant throughput was affected by lower mine production, which was primarily a result of lost production days related to a work stoppage due to a fatal accident at the mine. Stratoni reported an operating loss of $2.1 million for the quarter, including a $1.3 million inventory write-down as a result of continued low lead and zinc prices.

Olympias

On March 22, 2016, the Company was granted the required installation permit to begin Phase II of Olympias.  Work during the quarter included the shutdown of the Phase I tailings retreatment plant, which treated a final 87,350 tonnes of tailings and produced 2,774 payable gold ounces. By the end of the quarter excellent progress had been made on the demolition of the existing plant with works completed in the crusher building and well advanced in the flotation building. The site also began to accept delivery of equipment for the Phase II plant.

The Company has initiated preliminary planning and engineering for Olympias Phase III, which will include construction of a process plant and infrastructure in the Kokkinolakas valley. The new plant is expected to operate at a nominal 800,000 tonnes per year producing lead, zinc and gold concentrates.

Total expenditure for the quarter was $21.7 million.

Skouries

Following the Company's decision on January 11, 2016 to suspend further development at Skouries, the majority of site works during the quarter were focused on winding down construction activities and preparing for the transition to care and maintenance, including all environmental works to safely secure the site. A key milestone was also achieved during the quarter in which the project surpassed 365 days and over 1 million man hours without a Lost Time incident.

On February 25, 2016, the Company received the outstanding building permit for the construction of the Skouries processing plant from the local planning office, however the project remained suspended during the first quarter pending the approval of the updated Technical Study.

Work on the development of the Skouries underground mine design continued during the quarter. The underground operation has been designed around bulk mining methods using sublevel open stoping with paste backfill.  

Total expenditure for the period, including environmental and decommissioning costs, and care and maintenance activities was $10.6 million.

Subsequent to the end of the first quarter, on May 9, 2016, the Company announced that it had received the approval of the updated Technical Study and will recommence construction activities at the project site.

Perama Hill

No project development activities took place during the quarter and the project remains on care and maintenance.

BRAZIL

Vila Nova

Due to continued depressed market conditions for iron ore Villa Nova has continued on care and maintenance. 

Tocantinzinho

The Company continued to optimize the design and operating performance of the Tocantinzinho project during the quarter.  Higher cost capital items such as the future access road and power line have been the focus of the optimization study in order to reduce the upfront capital requirements and explore opportunities for positive operating cost impacts.

Capital costs incurred at Tocantinzinho during the quarter totalled $0.5 million.

ROMANIA

Certej

During the quarter the Company continued to focus on engineering and testwork. Capital and operating costs are being updated as basic engineering designs develop.  Work also continued on the development of offsite infrastructure.

A total of $2.4 million was spent on Certej during the quarter.

Exploration Review

During the quarter 7,500 metres of exploration drilling were completed at the Company's operations and exploration projects. The majority of the 2016 drilling programs are not scheduled to commence until later in the year due to the seasonal challenges.

Turkey

Exploration drilling continued through the quarter at Efemcukuru, with 5,300 meters completed.  Most of the drilling was directed towards establishing the continuity of mineralized shoots within the Kokarpinar vein system.

Reconnaissance exploration programs in Turkey concentrated on desktop evaluations of volcanic centers in western Turkey for porphyry and epithermal system potential.  

China

At White Mountain, over 1,500 metres of underground exploration drilling was completed during the quarter, primarily testing stepouts of the North and Far North ore zones.  Significant new intercepts from the Far North zone included 11.8 meters grading 12.82 grams per tonne gold (DHX365-335) and 11.2 meters grading 7.06 grams per tonne gold (DHX365-336).

Greece

Exploration activities in Greece were limited to completing preparations for the upcoming underground development and exploration drilling program at Mavres Petres, which will target the untested down-dip and along-strike projections of the orebody.  Underground development is scheduled to commence in the second quarter.

Brazil

There was no exploration activity during the quarter at Tocantinzinho. Reconnaissance-level mapping and sampling programs were conducted over our licenses in the Mara Rosa belt in Goias State.  

Romania

Drilling was conducted at the Brad exploration license, testing outcropping zones of silicification for potential epithermal mineralization. Permit applications are underway for drilling several targets on the Certej license, peripheral to the main Certej orebody.
