“Our strategic focus for the last several years has been to lower operating costs and improve productivity at both of our operating mines while transitioning the Galena Complex from silver-copper to silver-lead production,” said Darren Blasutti, President and CEO of Americas Silver Corporation. “We also made substantial capital investments over the last two years, which will allow us to increase our silver-lead resource to a level that should maintain current production rates at Galena for the next 7-9 years.

Primero Receives Legal Claim Filed by Mexican Tax Authorities

McEwen Mining Regains Compliance With NYSE Listing Standards

Chief Owner, Rob McEwen, stated: “This is wonderful news and it highlights our strong operational performance in 2015, where we increased our gold/silver production, decreased our production cost/oz., generated free cash flow and steadily built our treasury over the year. Also, during the year we declared and paid our first ever semi-annual capital distribution. Our share price appreciation since July, 2015 reflects the value in exercising financial discipline and resisting the temptation to finance at the bottom of the market. We refused to give away our future upside. We have not and will not sell metal streams, sell royalties or hedge our future production. At this time, we are debt free, we have $33 million in cash and bullion. As you can see, we have no pressure on our balance sheet and we will be paying our second capital distribution on February 12th. This is a great way to start 2016.”
