Newmont Corp. said its profit and sales fell for the third quarter as its attributable gold production decreased.

The gold miner on Thursday posted net income attributable to shareholders of $3 million, compared with $839 million in the prior year. Earnings per share were flat, compared with $1.04 in the year-ago period.

Adjusted earnings were 60 cents a share. Analysts polled by FactSet were expecting 76 cents a share.

Sales fell to $2.9 billion from $3.17 billion. Analysts were looking for $3.14 billion.

Attributable gold production fell 6% to 1.45 million ounces from the prior-year quarter due to lower throughput at Nevada Gold Mines as a result of a mechanical failure in May. That led to a partial shutdown of its Goldstrike mill until it was fully repaired in September. It also saw lower leach production, mill recovery and ore grade milled at CC&V, lower throughput, grade milled and recovery at Boddington and lower throughput at Tanami, as the mine was placed under maintenance in July.
