UPDATE: And gotta like this from the MD&A: "Adjusted operating costs for 2013 were forecasted to be in the range of $675 to $725 per ounce of gold sold. Management now anticipates that adjusted operating cost per ounce will be approximately $650." That's because it means 4q13 op cash costs are now being estimated by the company at $530/oz.
