Similarly, fuel costs, plant maintenance and salaries were all significantly lower as well.
Leading Edge posted a comprehensive loss of C$3.45mln compared to C$2.85mln loss posted a year earlier.
The company said the majority of the increase in loss is down to the recognition of share-based compensation which totalled C$1.5mln (2015: C$17,000).
At the end of the period, Leading Edge had cash in the bank of C$2.7mln, versus C$3.2mln at the end of 2015.
