Barric Gold Lowers Profit Outlook - 27 September, 2002 - News

Lower gold production and higher costs made Barrick Gold Corp on Thursday to lower its 2002 and third-quarter earnings forecasts.

The company revised its 2002 projections to 33 cents to 35 cents share, before adjustments, compared with earlier guidance for earnings at the lower end of 42 cents to 47 cents.

The company said gold production is on target for 5.7 million ounces, while cash costs are expected to average $178 per ounce, compared with $172 per ounce previously estimated.
