TORONTO, Dec. 17, 2012 /CNW/ - Almonty Industries Inc. ("Almonty" or the "Company") (TSX-V: AII) today announced the filing of its audited consolidated financial statements and management discussion & analysis ("MD&A") for the year ended September 30, 2012.  Unless otherwise indicated, all currency amounts contained in this news release are in thousands of Canadian dollars.

The Company processed 119,903 tonnes of ore during the three month period ended September 30, 2012. The weighted average grade of ore processed was 0.24% for a total contained MTU WO3 processed of 29,229.  For the Year ended September 30, 2012 the Company processed 476,591 tonnes of ore at a weighted average grade of 0.24% WO3 for a total contained MTU WO3 processed of 113,867.

Tungsten concentrate recovery for the three month period ended September 30, 2012 averaged 60.0%, a 3.3% increase over the previous quarter's recovery rate of 58.1%.  Tungsten recovery for the Year ended September 30, 2012 averaged 57.8%, reflecting a steady increase over the prior year when the mine was under previous ownership.

The Company shipped 15,817 MTU of high grade concentrate (65.0% or higher WO3) and 2,760 MTU of low grade concentrate (between 45.0% and 65.0% WO3) during the three months ended September 30, 2012. For the Year ended September 30, 2012 the Company shipped 57,839 MTU of high grade concentrate (65.0% or higher WO3) and 8,580 MTU of low grade concentrate (between 45.0% and 65.0% WO3).

Production levels for the three months ended September 30, 2012 totalled 17,524 MTU of WO3 concentrate, an increase of 8.5% over the three months ended June 30, 2012.  Cash operating costs for the three months ended September 30, 2012 were US$159 /MTU, a decrease of 15.0% over the three months ended June 30, 2012 and a decrease of 17.6% when compared to the year ended September 30, 2011.

Subsequent to year end the Company continued to modify its processing circuit with the installation of additional tungsten recovery equipment.  Tungsten recovery rates were 60.0% for October and 64.2% for November.  Based on test work that has been carried out to date the Company believes that it will be able to achieve its targeted tungsten recovery rate of 65.0% with the planned addition, during the month of December 2012, of additional equipment to the processing circuit.

Lewis Black, Chief Executive Officer of Almonty commented, "Our rigorous optimization efforts have yielded the results we expected and we are on track to achieve our minimum targeted tungsten recovery rate of 65%.  Our cash operating cost are continuing to trend down towards our targeted level of $125-130 per MTU, positioning the Company to continue generating positive cash flow in the context of the current APT commodity pricing environment.  The Company is ready to capitalize on the anticipated increase in demand for Tungsten concentrate in 2013."
