Q2 Revenues Increase Over Q1 Driven by Growth in Gold Production
BOTHELL, WA / ACCESSWIRE / August 13, 2014 / Borneo Resource Investments Ltd. (OTCQB:BRNE), (the "Company" or "Borneo") a mining company that mines gold and develops producing gold mining properties in Indonesia, today announced that for the three months ended June 30, 2014, the Company's revenues increased over the prior three month period ended March 31, 2014. Borneo had previously reported first quarter 2014 revenues of $380,000 and gross profit from mining operations of over $130,000.
"With active production at both Talawaan and our Ratatotok complex, we anticipate reporting second quarter gold production and corresponding revenues will very comfortably exceed first quarter levels. We expect to file our 10-Q with SEC and to report full results in the coming days," stated Borneo CEO Nils Ollquist. "For the balance of 2014 we are working towards bringing our two additional Ratatotok properties, Ratatotok and Ratatotok Southeast, into production as we continue to asses additional increases in capacity as opportunities present themselves."
At its Ratatotok complex, in the second quarter, Borneo reached full production capacity on its first gold heap leach base which has capacity to process 2,500 metric tons of ore. The Company is now building its second gold heap leach base which will add an additional 5,000 metric tons of capacity to process ore mined at its contiguous Ratatotok properties.
"As our 5,000 metric ton heap leach base comes online over the next few months, we expect the trend of increasing production and revenues will continue," Nils concluded.
