Financial and Operating Results

Earnings

Net earnings were $66.5 million for the quarter, or $0.52 per share ($169.4 million, or $1.37 per share). The lower net earnings are primarily attributable to:

- higher tax expense of $45.6 million, largely due to future tax expense recognized as the Company draws down its future tax asset;

- the effect of the appreciating Canadian dollar, estimated at $16.8 million;

- lower copper sales volumes, offset in part by higher zinc sales volumes, resulting in lower revenues;

- higher volumes of purchased zinc and copper concentrates, which increased operating expenses by $13.2 million;

- lower profit sharing expenses, which decreased operating expenses by $7.3 million;

- higher depreciation and amortization expense, which increased by $7.3 million; and

- higher exploration expense of $6.6 million, as part of HudBay's $45.2 million exploration program for 2007.

During the first nine months of 2007 (year to date) net earnings were $198.7 million or $1.57 per share ($398.2 million or $4.00 per share). The lower net earnings are primarily attributable to:

- higher tax expense of $225.4 million, largely due to future tax expense recognized as the Company draws down its future tax asset;

- the effect of the appreciating Canadian dollar, estimated at $35.2 million;

- higher depreciation and amortization expense, which increased by $21.4 million; and

- higher exploration expense of $17.8 million.

(6) Production includes Balmat payable metal in concentrate shipped, including pre-commercial production in 2006.

(7) Excludes inventory changes at Considar Metal Marketing Inc.

(8) Zinc sales include sales to Zochem and the Balmat payable metal in concentrate shipped (including to HBMS) in 2007.

Partially offsetting these negative impacts were higher revenues from increased year over year sales volumes and metal prices net of increased operating and other costs.

Adding back non-cash tax expense in the quarter of $22.6 million and excluding the unfavourable $16 million impact(9) from the appreciation in the Canadian dollar versus the US dollar, HudBay's Q3 2007 net earnings on this basis were $105 million. Year to date earnings on this basis were $337.3 million. The Company continues to benefit from its significant tax pools, and minimal cash income taxes were paid year to date. The benefit of these tax pools is expected to continue for the balance of 2007, resulting in minimal cash income taxes this year. The Company expects to continue to pay Manitoba mining taxes in 2007.

Revenue

Total revenue for Q3 2007 was $319.8 million ($346.2 million) reflecting the negative $23 million impact of the appreciation in the Canadian dollar versus the US dollar, lower copper sales volumes and marginally lower prices for zinc and copper in Q3 2007. This was partially offset by higher sales volumes for zinc, gold and silver, together with higher realized prices for gold and silver. Total revenue year to date was $1,027.2 million ($815.9 million) reflecting higher metal sales volumes together with higher realized metal prices year to date 2007. This was partially offset by appreciation in the Canadian dollar versus the US dollar.

Through the third quarter, the Company continued to receive attractive prices, which include finished metal premiums that were above LME averages.

Operating Expenses

Operating expenses for Q3 2007 were $188.8 million ($173.5 million). The Q3 2007 increases are primarily attributable to increased sales volumes and higher costs of production. Sales of zinc, gold and silver were all higher in Q3 2007 while copper sales volumes were somewhat lower. Increased costs of production are from higher volumes for purchased zinc and copper concentrates, commercial production at Balmat as well as generally higher costs for mining and processing operations. The impact of the appreciating Canadian dollar and lower employee profit sharing costs also contributed to the year over year change in operating expenses.

Operating expenses during the first nine months of 2007 were $570.7 million ($434.4 million). The year to date 2007 increases are attributable to significant increases in sales volumes and higher costs of production. Sales of zinc metal were 24% higher and sales of copper metal were 15% higher. Increased costs of production are from higher volumes for purchased zinc and copper concentrates, commercial production at Balmat and generally higher costs for mining and processing operations, net of the impact from the appreciating Canadian dollar.

HudBay's Q3 2007 cash cost per pound of zinc sold, net of by-product credits, was negative US$0.15 (negative US$0.82) and year to date was US$0.26 (negative US$0.52). A reconciliation of this non-GAAP measure is provided in the Company's Q3 2007 MD&A.

Depreciation and amortization increased in Q3 2007 to $23.9 million ($16.6 million) and increased to $69.1 million year to date ($47.7 million). The increases primarily reflect the inclusion of Balmat beginning Q1 2007, increased depreciation and amortization expense at the Trout Lake mine and higher production tonnage at the 777 mine.

Tax Expense

Tax expense in Q3 2007 was $27.8 million compared with a net tax benefit of $17.8 million in Q3 2006. The Q3 2007 tax expense comprises $21.5 million of income tax expense ($28.0 million tax benefit) and $6.3 million of mining tax expense ($10.2 million). Certain previously unrecognized tax losses have been recognized in the quarter, having the effect of increasing the future tax asset and reducing tax expense.

Year to date tax expense was $135.1 million compared with a net tax benefit of $90.4 million in the first nine months of 2006. The year to date tax expense is comprised of $98.9 million of income tax expense ($109.0 million benefit) and $36.2 million of mining tax expense ($18.6 million). Importantly, the income tax portion is largely a non-cash expense due to the draw down of the Company's tax asset, which was recognized in 2006 and is associated with prior losses.

CORPORATE HIGHLIGHTS

2007 Exploration Program Delivering Results

HudBay continues to make excellent progress in the execution of its 2007 exploration program.

1. Significant New Zinc Discovery at Lalor Lake - On October 23, 2007 HudBay announced additional results from its diamond drill program at the Lalor Lake mineral property in the Flin Flon Greenstone Belt. To date 25 drill holes have been completed or are in progress. Based on data from 16 holes that contain widths and mineralization which have been used in the conceptual estimate, indications are potentially 18 to 20 million tonnes at 7.7% to 8.8% zinc(10). Encouraging precious metal assays were not included in the estimate and may provide additional exploration potential. The Lalor Lake deposit is near HudBay's Snow Lake concentrator which has significant additional capacity.(11)

2. First half 2007 Exploration Update -- HudBay's $45.2 million exploration program for 2007 includes drilling of electromagnetic anomalies, known deposits, structural re-interpretations to discover new ore bodies as well as exploration in our operating mines to potentially increase our ore reserves and extend the life of our existing mines. Land holdings now total 422,079 hectares including 381,874 hectares in the Flin Flon Greenstone Belt. Year to date, approximately $31.3 million ($11.4 million) was spent on exploration activities at all locations.

3. NI 43-101 Report Completed on Tom and Jason Deposits -- In July 2007, HudBay completed a National Instrument 43-101 compliant in-situ mineral resource estimate for its Tom and Jason deposits in the Yukon Territory. The mineral resource estimate for the two deposits totalled 6.43 million tonnes of indicated mineral resources grading 6.33% zinc, 5.05% lead and 56.55 grams per tonne silver and 24.55 million tonnes of inferred mineral resources grading 6.71% zinc, 3.48% lead and 33.85 grams per tonne silver. This confirmed the combined deposits as one of the largest undeveloped zinc/lead deposits in North America. The Tom and Jason deposits are located in close proximity to each other on a property of 5,278 hectares, close to the Yukon- Northwest Territories border. The property is approximately 400 km east of Whitehorse where the deposits straddle the North Canol Road and share a common airstrip.(12)

4. VMS Venture Option Agreement -- In August 2007, HudBay announced it had entered into an option agreement with VMS Ventures Inc. (VMS) covering 573 hectares in the Snow Lake area of Manitoba. The agreement builds on HudBay's own $45.2 million exploration program for 2007 and further leverages the Company's exploration opportunities. With the VMS agreement, HudBay now has option agreements in place with six mineral exploration companies in the Flin Flon Greenstone Belt.

Health, Safety, Environment and Product Quality

HudBay's lost time accident frequency rate, based on 200,000 hours worked was 0.9 year to date, unchanged from the same period in 2006. During the third quarter of 2007, the White Pine Copper Refinery received notification after external audit that it was being recommended for certification to OHSAS 18001:1999, ISO 14001:2004 and ISO 9001:2000. There were no significant environmental non-compliances during the quarter.

(10) The estimate of potential tonnes and grade of the Lalor Lake potential mineral deposit are conceptual in nature. The basis upon which the disclosed potential tonnes and grade has been determined is provided in HudBay's news release dated October 23, 2007. There has been insufficient exploration to define a mineral resource and it is uncertain if further exploration will result in the Lalor Lake deposit being delineated as a mineral resource.
