By Broker News | More Articles by Broker News

Perseus Mining has, in the opinion of analysts at Citi, released a “solid” March quarter production report. Gold output was pretty stable, while costs (AISC) fell by no less than -19%. A financing agreement for the development of Yaoure further supports the analysts’ growing optimism.

On the back of all these encouraging achievements, Citi maintains the Buy/High Risk rating, while lifting the price target to 60c from 55c. The analysts point out the gold miner is on track to meet FY19 guidance of 271-291koz at cost of US$925-1000/oz; this compares with Citi’s forecasts of 279koz at US$943/oz.
