During the first two months of 2020 ca. 82 kt of ore was processed at the Silver Mine. This yielded ca. 264 000 ounces of silver, 353 tons of lead, 741 tons of zinc and 634 ounces of gold in the concentrates.
We expect to process 480 – 540 kt of ore in 2020 whereas in 2019 Silver Mine processed 343 kt of ore. Correspondingly, the silver production in 2020 is forecasted to be 1.4 - 1.7 million ounces. Production target is conditional to the receiving of an updated environmental permit. One of our aims is to stabilize the volatility of the head grades which helps to maintain good metal recoveries at the processing plant and ensures steady cash-flow.
