    According to our 'expert', it's a tough time to be a base metals producer... Unfortunately, he/she has failed to calculate exchange rates, either because he/she is incapable of doing such a task, is ignorant to the fact it exists, or some other lame excuse. Anyhow, below are some back of the paper calculations to show you that, being an Australian base metals producer, its actually a very good time.

    AUD 0.7733....... (0.7796)

    Copper US$5714 becomes $7389 in Aussie....... ($7289)
    Lead US$1839 becomes $2378 in Aussie....... ($2380)
    Zinc US$2159 becomes $2791 in Aussie....... ($2767)
    Tin US$18,225 becomes $23,567 in Aussie....... ($23,995)

    Brackets indicate previous week's values.

    Based on companies reconfirmed 2014 production guidance:
    25kt of zinc = $ 69,775,000
    6kt of lead = $14,268,000
    2.5kt of copper = $18,472,500
    Total = AuD$102,515,500

    Note: The amount of revenue will differ from the total above as a percentage is used to pay for the smelter, etc.

    DYOR and check accuracy of calculations.
