Sales revenue for the quarter ended September 30, 2022 amounted to $Nil compared to revenue of $Nil for the quarter ended September 30, 2021. Shipments of concentrate commenced during the third quarter of 2019. Concentrate sales provisional revenues totalled US$183,000 for the third quarter of 2022 compared to US$329,000 for the third quarter of 2021. Until the mine commences commercial production, the net proceeds from concentrate sales are being offset against development assets.
The net loss for the quarter ended September 30, 2022 amounted to $ 1,555,824 (2021: $1,173,276) and the cash loss from operating activities before changes in non-cash working capital for the quarter ended September 30, 2022 amounted to $(3,003,660 (2021: ($1,116,243)). The difference in the net loss for Q3 2022 versus Q3 2021 is mainly due to changes in the amount of accretion expenses and loan interest costs between the quarters. The difference in the cash loss for the nine months ending September 30 2022 and the prior period results from adjustments for foreign exchange and prior year financing costs.
The Company had a cash balance of $3,567,196 at September 30, 2022 compared to $3,881,674 at September 30, 2021. The working capital deficit at September 30, 2022 amounted to $714,865 compared to a working capital surplus of $2,454,581 at September 30, 2021.
