Johannesburg, 14 April 2015: Gold Fields Limited (Gold Fields) (JSE, NYSE, NASDAQ Dubai: GFI) provides production and cost guidance for the Group for the March 2015 quarter (Q1 2015). First quarter production was planned lower due to the Christmas break in South Africa and mine scheduling at the other operations. There was a concomitant increase in unit costs, despite overall costs being well contained.
Attributable gold equivalent production for the quarter is expected to be approximately 501,000 ounces (Q4 2014: 556,000 ounces) at All-in Sustaining Costs (AISC) of US$1,145/oz (Q4 2014: US$1,023/oz) and All-in Costs (AIC) of US$1,165/oz (Q4 2014: US$1,047/oz).
Previously published guidance for 2015, of attributable gold equivalent production of 2.2 million ounces at AISC of US$1,055/oz and AIC of US$1,075/oz, remains intact.
Gold Fields’ full results for the quarter ended 31 March 2015 will be published on Thursday, 7 May 2015.
