Vancouver-based Miramar Mining has posted a net loss of CAD7.4 million, or 6 cents a share, on revenue of CAD9.8 million for the second quarter, compared with earnings of CAD2.4 million, or 3 cents a share, on revenue of CAD12.6 million for the corresponding 2002 quarter. Second quarter 2003 results included the write down of Con Mine assets of CAD7.3 million and a charge to reclamation expenses of CAD0.5 million to reflect a revised mine plan. Also included in the second quarter is a gain of CAD5.6 million of tax benefits recognized as a result of a reduction in future income tax liability. Weaker results were attributed to operating losses stemming from reserve failures at the Con Mine in Yellowknife, which will terminate underground mining operations. During the quarter, Miramar's Yellowknife operations produced 18,524 ounces of gold at a cash cost of USD445 per ounce versus 25,791 ounces at cash costs of USD197 per ounce in the same period in 2002. Weaker production was attributed to shortfalls in both mined grade and tonnage at the Con Mine as well as the collapse of the roof of the oxygen plant, a temporary shut down of the mill in May 2003, and a strengthening Canadian dollar against the US dollar. In the quarter, Miramar realized an average selling price of CAD446 per ounce of gold, compared with CAD481 achieved in the same period in 2002. As a result of the changes to the Yellowknife operations, Miramar anticipates gold production of 80,000 - 90,000 ounces for 2003, 35,000 - 40,000 ounces in 2004 and 20,000 - 25,000 ounces in 2005. Total cash costs for these periods are expected to average approximately USD350 per ounce based on current exchange rates.

The average gold price realized in 2002 was CAD461 (approximately USD300) per ounce.
