The aim is to align the operating performance and cost profile of the operations with industry-leading global uranium production projects.

During the September 2018 quarter, the company reduced its inventory and spent less on production expenditures as it underwent the transition.

There were more than 40,000 pounds of uranium produced from Lance during the quarter, which topped the high end of the company’s guidance.

The company’s toll-milling service provider dried and drummed more than 30,000 pounds of yellowcake during the three months.

Product is dried and drummed intermittently on a campaign basis.

Guidance unchanged

Peninsula’s guidance for the financial year ending June 30, 2019, remains unchanged at 90,000 to 110,000 pounds.

On October 1, 2018, the company sold 100,000 pounds of U3O8 to a customer, its final delivery obligation for 2018.

There were 85,000 pounds supplied by Peninsula and another 15,000 pounds sourced from the market, with the transactions to appear in the company’s December 2018 quarterly report.
