PART I - FINANCIAL INFORMATION, CONTINUED:

ITEM 2. MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF RESULTS OF OPERATIONS AND FINANCIAL CONDITION, CONTINUED:

The pounds of antimony produced and sold was down 19,322 lbs from the prior quarter of 2012 and down 59,599 lbs from the same quarter one year ago, and the sales price per pound was down $0.76 per lb from the nine month period for the prior year. The pounds of product (raw material) from Mexico increased 11,627 lbs over the same quarter and 66,374 lbs over the nine months from one year ago, but were down 12,714 lbs from the prior quarter of 2012. The flotation plant at Puerto Blanco is on line since early October of 2012, and we should see increased product from Mexico in the upcoming quarters. Costs incurred in getting the Mexico plants in operation were substantial in 2012, and will continue during the remainder of the year as production is being ramped up. Conversely, we will have more antimony products from Mexico to sell, and the cost of raw material per pound of antimony produced will decrease as we are able to work more raw materials from Mexico into our production. In addition, we expect to have increased revenue from precious metals as we process more of the raw materials supplied by our Mexico division. We contracted in July 2012 to install a natural gas pipeline for our Mexico smelter operation. Our fuel costs are our second largest expense after raw material in Mexico, and we are expecting the switch from propane to natural gas to decrease our Mexico fuel costs by 75%. We have spent $132,000 on the pipeline project as of September 30, 2012, and our projections are that the total cost will be approximately $1 million. We expect the pipeline to be completed in nine months.

We had sales of precious metals since 2008 as follows:

           Silver/Gold           2009           2010            2011          2012 YTD
      Ounces Gold Shipped         31.797         101.127         161.711          72.609
      Ounces Silver Shipped     6,870.10       31,545.22       17,472.99       16,370.15

The tons of zeolite sold in the third quarter of 2012 decreased by 559 tons sold from the tons sold the third quarter of 2011, but was up by 298 tons for the nine months ended September 30, 2012. The sales price per ton was better than the prior year's sales price. We expect this to continue through the remainder of the year.

Our general and administrative costs are significantly higher than the prior year, and management is aggressively seeking ways to bring this cost down. During the three months ended September 30, 2012, we incurred approximately $88,000 in one time charges related to our listing on the NYSE MKT stock exchange.

Financial Condition and Liquidity

Cash provided (used) by operations   $            482,560     $           564,041
Cash (used) by investing                       (2,535,046 )            (2,239,441 )
Cash provided (used) by financing:
  Principal paid on long-term debt               (147,095 )              (124,722 )
  Sale of Stock                                 4,684,763               1,242,780
  Other                                          (113,908 )               113,908
   Net change in cash                $          2,371,274     $          (443,434 )

Net cash provided by financing activities during the first nine months of 2012 and 2011 was $4,423,760 and $1,132,294, respectively, and was primarily generated from the sale of common stock.


PART I - FINANCIAL INFORMATION, CONTINUED:

Our liquidity (cash) and working capital has improved by approximately $2.2 million from December 31, 2011. This was primarily due to an increase in cash, which is approximately the net cash received from issuing $4.7 million of common stock, and expending $2.3 million for capital improvements and operations. Decreases in our accounts receivable increased our cash position at September 30, 2012, and the primary decreases to cash were for payments of accounts payable, checks issued but not cleared at end of year, and payments on long term debt. We have lines of credit of $202,000 which have not been drawn on at September 30, 2012.
