New Pacific Reports Financial Results For The Year Ended June 30, 2014

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA â€" September 15, 2014: New Pacific Metals Corp. (“New Pacific” or the “Company”) today announced its audited consolidated financial results for the year ended June 30, 2014.Â

This earnings release should be read in conjunction with the Company's Management Discussion & Analysis, Financial Statements and Notes to Financial Statements for the corresponding period, which have been posted on SEDAR at www.sedar.com and are also available on the Company's website at www.newpacificmetals.com. All figures are expressed in Canadian Dollars (CAD) unless otherwise stated.

FISCAL 2014 FINANCIAL SUMMARY

For the year ended June 30, 2014, the Company reported net loss attributable to equity holders of $41.5 million or $0.62 per share compared to $1.3 million or $0.02 per share in the prior year.Â

Due to the flooding in summer 2014 that closed public bridge access to the Tagish Lake site, and the prolonged inactivity as a result of the Yukon government’s inaction to resolve the exploration permit’s security deposit, management has elected to cease operations at the TLG Project. Management will revisit this issue once the Yukon government replaces the bridge and addresses the permit security issue, which the Company expects to be completed in mid-2015. The Company assessed the recoverable amounts at the value in use of each cash-generating unit to determine if there was any impairment. As a result of the assessment, an impairment expense of $40.0 million was recognized against the carrying amounts of the project’s mineral interest and plant and equipment.

Excluding impairment and other non-cash effects from foreign exchange and other non-cash expenses, the Company recorded cash expenses of $1.6 million in the current fiscal year compared to $1.8 million in the prior year. The reduction in general expenses was attributed to cost saving initiatives and the reduction of travel and other general exploration expenses.

As at the end of the fiscal year, the Company had $21.7 million in cash and cash equivalents and short term investments.

FOURTH QUARTER FINANCIAL SUMMARY

For the quarter ended June 30, 2014, the Company reported net loss attributable to equity holders of $41.0 million or $0.61 per share, compared to net income of $0.2 million or $0.003 per share, in the same prior year period.Â

Net loss in the current quarter includes impairment of the Tagish Lake Gold project of $40.0 million compared to $nil in the prior year quarter. Excluding impairment and other non-cash effects from foreign exchange and other non-cash expenses, the Company recorded cash expenses of $0.4 million in the current quarter compared to $0.6 million in the prior year quarter.

  • 5.60m @ 406 g/t Ag, 1.44% Pb, 0.96% Zn, 1.02% Sb and 0.02% Cu from 93.80 metres to 99.40 metres, including 1.50m @ 502 g/t Ag, 0.87% Pb, 1.16% Zn, 0.55% Sb and 0.03% Cu from 93.80 metres to 95.30 metres; and 1.40m @ 890 g/t Ag, 2.94% Pb, 0.29% Zn, 2.58% Sb and 0.04% Cu from 96.60 metres to 98.00 metres in the hole ZK1501.
  • 2.60m @ 598 g/t Ag, 10.61% Pb, 0.75% Zn, 3.02% Sb, 0.05% Cu and 0.15% SnO2 from 5.50 metres to 8.10 metres in the trench TC1101.

The assay results are summarized in Table 1 below. Mineralization style of Zone 1 and Zone 2 are similar and both zones are hosted by altered shear structures developed in Permian turbidite sediments and are generally characterized by massive and disseminated sulfides of galena-sphalerite-pyrite in altered sandstone and dacitic dykes. The 2013 drilling program covered only a two-kilometre long section of the entire six kilometre long known mineralized zones on a drill grid of one hundred metres by two hundred metres, aiming to test the size and nature of the silver-lead-zinc mineralized structure and to confirm the assay results of historical trenching and drilling.  With successful drill results of 2013 the Company believes that the Project may have the potential of hosting significant silver dominated polymetallic resources, and the Company plans to commence resource definition drilling at the known mineralized Zone 1 and Zone 2, and, in addition, plans to continue with regional exploration to identify more mineralized zones at other prospects of the Project during the 2014 field campaign.

Cutoff of 40 g/t silver or 0.5% of the sum of lead and zinc is used in calculation of intercepts. Interval is reported as core length. True width is not available due to speculative geometry of mineralized zones caused by scarcity of drill data at this early exploration stage. Tin is reported as oxide equivalent.

Drill cores were halved by diamond saw with half core samples being shipped to the laboratory of ALS at Guangzhou for preparation and analysis.  Analysis methods are four-acid digestion with ICP-AES finish (lab code ME-OG62) for silver, lead, zinc, and copper with overlimits going to titrimetric and gravimetric analysis, and sodium peroxide fusion plus ICP-AES finish (lab code ME-ICP881) for tin and antimony.  Standard reference materials, blanks, and duplicate samples were inserted prior to shipment for assaying to monitor the quality assurance and quality control of the assay data.

Alex Zhang, P.Geo., is the Qualified Person on the project as defined under National Instrument 43-101. He has reviewed and approved the technical contents of this news release.
