Review of Quarterly Results
The loss in Q4 2013 was $1.22M compared to $4.72M in Q4 2012. This decrease in loss of $3.50M was primarily due to a decrease in Administrative expenses of $961K and a decrease in Exploration and evaluation expenses of $2.65M. The decrease in Administrative expenses was primarily due to lower consulting fees, lower wages and benefits and lower professional fees in Q4 2013 compared to Q4 2012. The decrease in Exploration and evaluation expenses was due to three main factors. First, the Company spent approximately $717K in Q4 2012 related to an in-fill drilling program which was announced and started in Q4 2012, and there were no costs associated with this program in Q4 2013. Second, the Company incurred approximately $836K less in environmental assessment costs as the Company filed its EA Application into the screening process in April 2013. Third, the Company recognized an adjustment of approximately $652K in Q4 2012 as a result of an audit by the Canada Revenue Agency ("CRA") related to the Province of British Columbia's Mineral Exploration Tax Credit ("METC").
Review of Annual Results
The loss in FY 2013 was $6.52M as compared to $15.15M in FY 2012. This decrease in loss of $8.63M was primarily due to a decrease in Administrative expenses of $1.93M and a decrease in Exploration and evaluation expenses of $6.73M. The decrease in Administrative expenses was primarily due to lower consulting fees, lower wages and benefits and lower investor relations costs in FY 2013 as compared to FY 2012. The decrease in Exploration and evaluation expenses was due to three main factors. First, the Company incurred $2.60M less in EA costs in FY 2013 versus FY 2012 as the Company submitted its EA Application in April 2013. Second, the Company incurred $1.55M less in engineering costs in FY 2013 versus FY 2012 as in FY 2012 the Company conducted additional engineering to support the permitting process and these costs were not incurred in FY 2013. Third, the Company recognized an adjustment of approximately $652K in FY 2012 as a result of an audit by the Canada Revenue Agency ("CRA") related to the Province of British Columbia's Mineral Exploration Tax Credit ("METC") program and no such credit was recognized in FY 2013.
Cash and Cash Equivalents
The Company had cash and cash equivalents of $10.00M as at December 31, 2013, as compared to cash and cash equivalents of $7.06M as at December 31, 2012. As at December 31, 2013, the Company had working capital of $9.70M, as compared to working capital of $7.75M as at December 31, 2012.
The Company's focus going forward, is expediting the development of the Harper Creek project. Major activities include completing the Environmental Assessment process, advancing the Mine Permitting process and pursuing funding activities to increase its working capital and develop the Harper Creek project. The Company believes its current working capital is sufficient for the next twelve months of general and administrative activities, however, additional funding will be required by the Company to complete its strategic objectives and to continue as a going concern.
