WORLD’S LARGEST SILVER MINES: Suffer Falling Ore Grades Rising Costs
The world’s two largest silver mines have seen their productivity decline substantially due to falling ore grades and rising costs.  Gone are the days when silver mines could produce silver at 15-20 ounces per ton.  Today, the Primary Silver Mining Industry is likely producing silver at an average yield of 4-5 ounces per ton.In my newest video, I discuss the changes that have taken place in the world’s two largest silver mines, the Cannington Mine in Australia and the Fresnillo Mine in Mexico.

WORLD SILVER PRODUCTION: 3 Charts You Won’t See Anywhere Else
The rate at which global silver production increased over the past century is quite astonishing.  When Columbus arrived in America (1492), the world was only producing 7 million oz of silver a year.  Today, the world’s largest primary silver mine, Fresnillo’s Sauicto Mine, produced three times that amount in just one year (22 million oz, 2016).  Yes, we have come along way in 500 years.Just think about that for a minute.  One silver mine last year produced three times the global amount in 1493.

Silver Miners’ Q3’17 Fundamentals
The silver miners’ stocks have really languished this year, grinding sideways to lower for months on end.  This vexing consolidation has fueled near-universal bearishness, leaving silver stocks deeply out of favor.  But once a quarter when earnings season arrives, hard fundamentals pierce the obscuring veil of popular sentiment.  The silver miners’ recently-reported Q3’17 results reveal today’s silver prices remain profitable.

Two-Thirds Of The Top Primary Silver Miners Suffered Production Declines In 2017
It has been a rough year for many primary silver miners as two-thirds have suffered declines in production.  Also, many high ranking silver producing countries are also experiencing a pronounced reduction in their domestic silver mine supply.  According to the data put out by World Metal Statistics, Chile’s silver production is down 20% in the first eight months of the year, while Australia is down 19%, Mexico declined 2% and Peru lower by 1%.The Silver Institute will be releasing their 2017 Sil

Silver, Stock Markets and TANSTAAFL
SILVER: Silver has been the money of commerce for several thousand years.  In contrast, unbacked debt-based fiat currencies have been a devaluing money substitute for decades. According to the St. Louis Federal Reserve, total debt securities and official national debt have increased exponentially for decades.  Prices for the stock market, silver, gold, food and most other necessities increase similarly. National debt has risen at 8 – 9% per year since 1913.  Since then the value of the dollar h

Global Silver Mining Industry Productivity Falls To The Lowest In History
After the Primary Silver Mining Industry enjoyed a brief increase in productivity over the past two years, it fell to the lowest ever in 2016.  The reason the primary silver mining industry’saverage yield increased in 2014 was due to the addition of Tahoe Resources high-grade Escobal Silver Mine.Tahoe’s Escobal Silver Mine’s average yield in 2014 was an astonishing 16.3 ounce per ton (oz/t).  Not only did Escobal Mine enjoy one the highest silver yields in the world, it produced over 20 million

Silver Miners’ Q4’16 Fundamentals
The silver miners’ stocks have had a roller-coaster ride of a year so far.  They surged, plunged, and then started surging again last week on a less-hawkish-than-expected Fed.  Such big volatility has spawned similar outsized swings in sentiment, distorting investors’ perceptions of major silver miners.  But their recently-reported fourth-quarter operating and financial results reveal the true underlying fundamental realities.

MAG Silver's World-Class Property Just Keeps Getting Better
MAG Silver appears to have the Midas touch: Everything it drills turns up silver—with a gold byproduct and lots of zinc, lead and copper thrown in for good measure. MAG's first drill hole discovered the Juanicipio vein and hole #16 discovered the Valdecañas vein, both world-class deposits. In this interview with The Gold Report, MAG CEO George Paspalas discusses the company's JV in the Fresnillo Trend, the latest off-the-chart deep discoveries and where MAG goes from here.

Bill Holter: 115 million ounces -- not even close to possible
I thought I would put today in perspective for those throwing in the towel on gold and silver. Some 23,000 silver contracts were sold in just a few minutes this morning. This equates to 115 million ounces. For perspective, there are only two countries in the world that produce this much in one year, Mexico and Peru. China roughly produces 115 million ounces but the production is not normally sold onto world markets. Looking at this from a "company" perspective, no single company even comes close

Production Plunged At The World’s Largest Primary Silver Mine
The largest primary silver mine in the world experienced a huge decline in its production due to falling ore grades.  The Cannington Mine, now run by South 23 Ltd., suffered a huge drop in its silver production during its 1H 2017 reporting time-period.  Some companies, such as South 32, start their fiscal new year in July.  BHP Billiton, who owned the Cannington mine since its start-up in 1997, spun it off to South 32 back in 2015.According to South 32’s production report, the Cannington Mine sa

Candidate Trump To President Trump, And All It Entails
Finally, gold recaptured its 50-day moving average of $1,190/oz – not for a lack of Cartel attempts to prevent it; having “lost” this widely watched technical support level in the aftermath of the heinous, historically blatant “post-Trump destruction” raid; after having surged, rightfully so, from $1,280/oz to $1,340/oz in the election’s immediate aftermath.  After which, the “powers-that-be,” shocked by the world-changing loss they believed to be impossible, were forced to shift their manipulat

Market Intervention Crushed Profit Margins At Largest Primary Silver Mining Producer
The profit margin trend at the world’s largest primary silver mining company has experienced a rapid decline over the past several years.  Fresnillo PLC in Mexico, is the largest primary silver mining company in the world.  Last year, Fresnillo PLC produced 47 million of silver and 762,000 oz of gold.For all their hard work, Fresnillo’s profit margin versus its cost of sales fell to an all-time low of 7% in 2015.

Silver Miners’ Q3’16 Fundamentals
The silver miners recently finished reporting their third-quarter results, offering a hard fundamental look into this sector.  This reality check is valuable given the fierce winds of bearish sentiment buffeting silver stocks in recent months.  Despite their huge correction, the elite silver miners’ fundamentals remain strong.  They are producing at costs far below prevailing silver levels, with profits poised to soar as silver recovers.
