ASX Stock Highlight: St Barbara Ltd (SBM)

St Barbara released their quarterly today with gold production up 18% to a quarterly record 83,615 ounces, at consolidated group cash operating costs of $844 per ounce. The cash balance is up 47% to $110 million. 

  • Current mine line forecast at 10 years
  • Substantial additional exploration opportunities
  • Annualised production now at 334,000 ounces of gold
  • Operating cash margin of $744 per ounce
  • No debt
  • Stable gold price outlook

St Barbara now looks very stable, with ample cash and strong financials, it appears to offer great value for an Australian-based mid-tier gold producer. With substantial selling from Van Eyk over recent times, there is a good chance that buying pressure will return.

Entry price today: $2.13
