For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016, the Company generated $4.9 million and $24.4 million of net cash flow from operations, respectively. We ended the third quarter of 2016 with liquid assets of $62.5 million composed of cash of $38.8 million, precious metals of $16.6 million and marketable securities of $7.1 million. The Company has no debt, and has not done any financings, sold any metal streams, royalties, or hedges against precious metals. As at October 31, 2016 we had liquid assets of $60.3 million.
Our 2016 production guidance remains 99,500 gold ounces and 3.3 million silver ounces, or approximately 144,000 gold equivalent ounces. However, we are reducing our original guidance for total cash costs and all-in sustaining costs ("AISC") from $780 and $935 per gold equivalent ounce, respectively, to $700 and $860. This is attributable to the reduced cost levels at the El Gallo Mine in the first nine months, which we expect to continue for the rest of this year.
In addition, the Company announces the promotion of Xavier Ochoa from Chief Operating Officer to President and Chief Operating Officer, effective immediately. Simultaneously, the Company announces the departure of its former President, Colin Sutherland.
