I didn't see this article posted yet. The fact that Dawe is now referencing the high end of guidance for 2013 and the fact that Daniel Racine was recently promoted to President and COO leads me to believe that Brigus met or exceeded production targets for 2012. This should bode well for Q4-2013 earnings and the share price going forward.
Note: Reliable production increases at Black Fox has historically been a problem for Brigus, but it appears that the addition of Daniel Racine has helped address this issue. If Brigus can meet production guidance for Q4-2012 (22.3Koz), and I think they will, they will have meet production guidance for 3 out of 4 quarters in 2012.
"Brigus Gold Corp. of Halifax will increase production to as much as 100,000 ounces annually in 2013 at its Ontario mine, Wade Dawe, chairman and CEO, said Thursday."
