The production figure for the March quarter was lower than the 26,123 ounces of gold that were produced in the December quarter last year. The production cost for the December quarter was also lower at US$185 per ounce. However the production was slightly above the two quarters before that.

The cumulative total of gold produced in the past three quarters is 76,241 ounces. Medusa Mining has thus generated $92 million in cash from the sales. The company has a market capitalization of $1.56 billion. It has declared a 5 cents a share dividend that was paid out on March 23, 2011.

Medusa is now looking forward to future growth with the new plant at its Co-O mine. Permits for the same are expected to be completed by September and the construction will take another 21 months. Once it is constructed the new plant will have the capacity to produce 200,000 ounces of gold per annum. The company is also looking forward to new exploration results from its many drilling sites in the Philippines.
