Brad Mills, Chief Executive Officer of Mandalay, commented: "From a financial perspective, Mandalay performed extremely well in the third quarter, repaying substantially all of our debt and achieving record revenue and EBITDA. We are now generating significant amounts of cash flow after all capital and exploration requirements. Looking forward to 2013, we currently expect the Company's gold equivalent production to increase by between 12%-23%."
