The deeper extensions of the Cata Alto 1 and 2 zones have been explored and found to be significantly higher grade and production improvements are now anticipated with the addition of high grade ore from the Alto 1, 1a and 2 zones at the 510 metre level.

Year to date, the combined metal production is 1.65 million Ag eq oz, as compared to 1.69 million Ag eq oz, for 2010. The estimated production for the fourth quarter is expected to improve to 550,000 Ag eq oz for a yearend total of approximately 2.2 million Ag eq oz. Production targets for 2012 and beyond are currently under review and management expects to provide further guidance in the fourth quarter.

A new General Manager, Mr. Graham Parsons, MBA, has been appointed for the Guanajuato Operations. Mr. Parsons is fluent in Spanish, having worked in underground operations and open pit projects in Spain, Argentina and Venezuela. He brings a wealth of international mine engineering and operations management experience to Great Panther.
