Yamana Gold Inc. (AUY: Quote,YAU.L,YRI.TO) provided preliminary operational results for the fourth-quarter and the full year 2012, and updated the company's outlook for 2013 - 2015.

Production during the fourth-quarter 2012 reached a record level of 322,800 GEO, at costs consistent with guidance. For the full year ended December 31, 2012, total production for the Company was also a record of over 1.2 million GEO consisting of 1.02 million ounces of gold and 9 million ounces of silver.

Production in 2013 is expected to be in the range of 1.44 - 1.60 million GEO. This will be an increase of at least 20% over 2012 production, which is expected to be delivered through quarter over quarter growth and similar to 2012, production in the second half of 2013 will exceed production in the first half of the year.

Production in 2014 is expected to increase by at least 33% from 2012 levels to a range of 1.60 - 1.77 million GEO. This increase will be in part due to a full year of production from C1 Santa Luz, Ernesto/Pau-a-Pique and Pilar, the Gualcamayo expansion, and the Suruca oxide and Corpo Sul expansions at Chapada.

Silver production is expected to be consistent at between eight to nine million ounces in each of 2013 and 2014.

Planned production beginning in 2014 and continuing into 2015 is targeted at a sustainable level of 1.75 million GEO per year.

Expansionary capital spending for 2013 is expected to be $470 million.

Expansionary capital spending is expected to decline significantly in 2014 as the projects currently in development will be complete and there are currently no other projects for which positive construction decisions have been made.

A ban on athletes using stamina-boosting gases - xenon and argon - came into effect on Monday. The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) said Hypoxia-Inducible Factor (HIF) activators Xenon and Argon have been added to the 2014 List of Prohibited Substances and Methods List following the required three-month notice period and UNESCO's communication to all States Parties. A recommendation to revise the British manufacturing growth eased further in August to its lowest level in 14 months as output and demand increased at slower rates, survey results from Markit Economics showed Monday. The Markit/CIPS Purchasing Managers' Index dropped to 52.5 from a revised 54.8 in July. Economists had expected the score to fall to 55.1 from July's original figure of 55.4. Consumers spent less in July than in the previous month, a surprise retreat that complicates the prevailing belief that the U.S. economic situation is improving. Along with the unexpected drop in spending, government figures released on Friday showed that incomes rose at a slower pace in July than in the previous month. Meanwhile, data on prices indicated that inflation pressures remain tame.
