2019 Q3 Update
Production on a 100% basis was 2.3 million pounds for the quarter and 6 million pounds for the first nine months of the year. Production is tracking higher than the comparable period in 2018 due to an increase in planned production in 2019. Due to the transition to equity accounting in 2018, our share of production will be shown as a purchase at a discount to the spot price and included in inventory at this value at the time of delivery. Our share of the profits earned by JV Inkai on the sale of its production will be included in “share of earnings from equity-accounted investee” on our consolidated statement of earnings.
