(Alliance News) - Polymetal International PLC on Tuesday said it is on track to meet its annual production guidance despite a reduction in output in the third quarter of 2021.

The Anglo-Russian precious metals mining company said gold equivalent production in the three months to September 30 decreased by 8% year-on-year to 437,000 ounces after a quarterly production record was set in the third quarter of 2020. Gold equivalent output for the recent nine months was down by 4% to 1.2 million ounces, hit by expected grade declines at Kyzyl, Svetloye and Voro, all located in Russia.

Revenue for the recent quarter declined by 7% year-on-year to USD819 million, due to lower gold and silver prices. For the first nine months of 2021, revenue reached USD2.09 billion, up 4% on the prior year.

"Start of production at Nezhda capped a solid third-quarter performance. Polymetal's portfolio of mines delivered results in line with the budget with the company firmly on track to meet its full-year production guidance", said Vitaly Nesis, chief executive of Polymetal.

The company's 2021 production guidance stands at 1.5 million gold equivalent ounces.

Polymetal shares were trading 1.8% lower in London on Tuesday morning at 1,391.50 pence each. The wider FTSE 100 was up 0.6%.
