“I am excited about the future. Calibre presents a compelling investment opportunity with its consistent delivery of strong free cash flow, ongoing reinvestment in exploration and growth, and commitment to conducting operations in a responsible, sustainable, and transparent manner,” CEO Darren Hall said.

Hall added that on October 15, the company will commemorate the fourth anniversary of its acquisition of the Nicaragua operating complex, a momentous event that reshaped the organization into a growth-focused gold producer.

Over the course of four years, the company diligently laid a robust foundation, consistently meeting its commitments, and financing investments and expansion from internal cash flows. Notably, it became a member of the World Gold Council, embracing the Responsible Gold Mining Principles and weaving sustainability into every aspect of its operations.

During this period, the company successfully obtained permits and developed five new mines, all self-funded through operational cash flows. The strategic effort resulted in an impressive 93 per cent surge in annual gold production, elevating the output to a range of 250,000 to 275,000 ounces, compared to the 2020 figure of 136,000 ounces.

Moreover, the company witnessed an extraordinary 370 per cent increase in reserves, net of production depletion. Finally, its financial position has flourished, with cash reserves expanding from $4 million to a substantial USD$97 million.
