The Ottoscope™ reports that Fortuna (FVI.v) has hedged around 65% of its zinc (Zn) and lead (Pb) production. The Zn is hedged at around U$1,200/MT (that’s U$0.544/lb) and the Pb is around $1,100/MT (that’s U$0.499/lb). This means that with the bias toward Zn over Pb at its Caylloma mine, the global average hedge price is a touch under U$0.53/lb. This hedge is for the first six months of 2009 (i.e. it started in January and finishes June ’09).
All silver production remains unhedged.
