Langille said record production for the year and September quarter from the Parral tailings retreatment project in Chihuahua enabled the company to generate $43.1 million net income for the period, reversing the previous year's $41.1 million impairment, and $12.6 million of free cash flow.
"Parral had an excellent year which resulted in a reversal of a previously recorded impairment of $41.1 million, which really reflects on how strongly that asset is performing now," said Langille.
"With our $52.7 million cash balance and the cash flow from our Parral operation, we are well positioned to continue the rapid advancement of the Los Ricos district."
Parral produced $39.5 million revenues from 2.2Moz silver-equivalent sales at $14.82/oz AISC for the year to September 30.
GoGold has the Los Ricos South and Los Ricos North projects, 25km apart, in a historic mining district about 100km northwest of Gaudalajara in Jalisco state.

GoGold expects to publish a preliminary economic assessment on Los Ricos before year-end, and complete about 100,000m of drilling at Los Ricos North in 2021. An initial resource for the northern project is expected to be posted by June next year.
GoGold has a strong following among institutional owners including Sprott Asset Management, Van Eck, Fourth Sail and Merck.
