Hong Kong, China, via ETELIGIS INC., 11/26/2014 – – Borneo Resource Investments Ltd. (OTCQB:BRNE) (the "Company" or "Borneo"), a mining company that mines gold and develops producing gold mines in Indonesia, today announced financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2014.
Revenue was up for both the third quarter of 2014 and year-to-date. Revenue increased 7.7 % in the third quarter to $546,927. On a year-to-date basis, revenue increased over 100% to $1,485,483, reflecting new operations at Borneo’s Ratatotok location. Borneo expects revenues to continue to increase as a result of new processing facilities and new properties.
Borneo is still in its initial growth stage. As a result, the costs of acquiring properties and making them ready for gold production have had a drag on operating results. While revenues exceeded costs applicable to sales, depreciation and general and administrative costs (including costs to acquire and plan development for new properties) generated an operating loss of $122,043 in the third quarter of 2014. Borneo, however, plans to grow revenue in the first quarter of 2015 and cut expenses to generate an operating profit in the first quarter of 2015.
Nils Ollquist, Chief Executive Officer commented “I am pleased to report that our operations in Ratatotok are developing well, with construction of our second (5000 ton capacity) processing area expected to be completed and operational by early January. We have also completed initial plans for a 10,000 ton capacity processing area, the implementation of which will bring our production capacity at Ratatotok to around 15 kg of gold per month.”
“From a financial perspective,” Mr. Ollquist continued, “I am pleased that the sales result for the nine months ending September 30, 2014 of $1.5 million was double the result for the comparable period last year, reflecting the ongoing effect of our expansion and upgrading program. Our profitability for the period was affected by the impact of high levels of expenditure on developing our production facilities which were charged to the profit and loss account under prevailing accounting guidelines. I am confident that continued investment in our operations, combined with strategic acquisitions of additional high quality properties will result in a sustained improvement in our operating metrics over 2015.”
