Karora Resources Inc. (TSX: KRR) announced this morning its operational and financial results for Q3 2021, recording gold production of 30,365 ounces. This is an increase from Q2 2021’s gold production of 29,831 ounces and Q3 2020’s gold production of 24,717 ounces.

The company’s revenue for the quarter dipped to $68.4 million from last quarter’s $69.6 million but increased from last year’s $56.1 million. However, the quarterly net earnings increased to $10.3 million from $5.4 million last quarter, but declined from $34.9 million for the same quarter last year.

Adjusting these line items among other financial calibrations, adjusted EBITDA for the quarter came in at $28.5 million compared to last quarter’s $29.5 million and last year’s $24.7 million.
