Base and precious metals miner Jubilee Metals has announced a strong performance in the six months ended December 31, 2022, with a 20% increase in platinum group metals (PGMs) produced from own operations and chrome production exceeding its guidance.
The company’s adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation (Ebitda) reduced to £11.8-million, compared with adjusted Ebitda of just under £15-million reported in the six months ended December 31, 2021, owing to lower PGM and copper prices.
Notably, the PGM basket price was down 11% to $1 453/oz in the reporting period, which was partially offset by PGM operational cost management and production output.
