Cautionary non-GAAP Measures and Additional GAAP Measures
that for purposes of this section, GAAP refers to IFRS. The Company believes
that investors use certain non-GAAP and additional GAAP measures as indicators to assess mining companies. They are intended
to provide additional information and should
not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures
of performance prepared with GAAP. Non-GAAP and additional GAAP measures do not
have a standardized meaning prescribed under IFRS and therefore may not be
comparable to similar measures presented by other companies.
Additional GAAP measures that are presented on the face of the Company’s consolidated statements of comprehensive income include “Operating income (loss)”. These measures are intended to provide an indication of the Company’s mine and operating performance. “Cash flow from operating activities before changes in non-cash working capital” is a non-GAAP performance measure that could provide an indication of the Company’s ability to generate cash flows from operations, and is calculated by adding back the change in non-cash working capital to “Net cash used in operating activities” as presented on the Company’s consolidated statements of cash flows. Per ounce measures are calculated by dividing the relevant mining and processing costs and total costs by the tonnes of ore processed in the period. “Cash costs per ounce” and “all-in sustaining costs per ounce” as used in this analysis are non-GAAP terms typically used by mining companies to assess the level of gross margin available to the Company by subtracting these costs from the unit price realized during the period. These non-GAAP terms are also used to assess the ability of a mining company to generate cash flow from operations. There may be some variation in the method of computation of these metrics as determined by the Company compared with other mining companies. In this context, “cash costs per ounce” reflects the cash operating costs allocated from in-process and dore inventory associated with ounces of silver and gold sold in the period. “Cash costs per ounce” may vary from one period to another due to operating efficiencies, grade of material processed and silver/gold recovery rates in the period. “All-in sustaining costs per ounce” include total cash costs, exploration, corporate and administrative, share based compensation and susta ining capital costs. For a reconciliation of non-GAAP and GAAP measures, please refer to the Management Discussion and Analysis dated August 12, 2020, for the quarter ended June 30, 2020, as presented on SEDAR.
