Investment Highlights

  • Near-Term Restart Opportunity: 18-24-month target to restart mining at the past-producing La Parrilla Silver Mine Complex (produced over 34 Moz AgEq between 2006 and 2019).
  • Excellent In-Place Infrastructure: ~$150M in in-place infrastructure including a 2,000 tpd mill and partial mining fleet. Fully permitted for production. Modest restart capital.
  • Significant Re-Rate Potential: Drill program underway at La Parrilla to grow mineral resource base near developed areas. Targeting 2H 2024 for new resource and PEA mine plan to support restart. Significantly undervalued compared to peers.
  • Further Upside Optionality: San Diego is one of the largest undeveloped silver projects in Mexico. Investigating potential milling synergies with La Parrilla. Regional exploration work at La Parrilla.
