Inter-Rock Minerals Inc of Toronto, ON has announced a 2013 net loss of US$309,000 on revenue of US$10.7 million compared with a net loss of US$964,000 on revenue of US$11.1 million in 2012.

Total sales volume for the full year was 3% lower than in 2012. The decline in sales reflects the loss of a roofing customer that accounted for about 5% of sales, partially offset by strong sales to the oil and gas drilling sector.
