Santacruz Silver Reports Second Quarter 2018 Financial Results

“During the second quarter we saw the beginning of the turnaround in our mining operations.” stated Carlos Silva, Chief Operating Officer of Santacruz. “Although the positive changes to our production volumes and operating costs were modest we firmly believe that we are now on the path to improved operating results at both Veta Grande and Rosario.” Mr. Silva continued, “With the mill expansion at Veta Grande completed and a better delineated mine plan on its way, our focus now is to improve underground stope production at both mines. Anticipated improvements include an increase to the grade of mineralized material being fed to both mills as well as higher metal recoveries which are expected to result in increased production and a lower unit cost of production.”
