General Moly reports that it finished Q2 2016 with a cash balance of approximately US$12.3 million and US$17.3 million in restricted cash.

The company’s joint venture operating company Eureka Moly LLC, which operates the Mt. Hope rare earth mining project, ended Q2 with a balance of US$14.7 million (100% basis) in a cash reserve account that is expected to fund ongoing projected care and maintenance expenses through 2020.

For Q2 ended June 30, 2016 the company reported a net loss of US$1.9 million, compared to a net loss of US$6.8 million for the prior year period. The decrease in quarterly net loss was primarily due to reduced overall ongoing expenditures in 2016 versus 2015.
