Newcrest Mining has posted a 2017-18 net profit of $US202m, which is 34 per cent lower than previously. A $US155m insurance payout arising from seismic events at the Cadia mine partially offset impairment charges associated with other assets. Newcrest has also advised that gold production at its Lihir mine is expected to be within the range of 950,000 and 1.05 million ounces in 2018-19. Rival gold miners St Barbara and Saracen Mineral Holdings have reported net profits of $227m and $75.6m respectively.
