Our Mission

Our goal is to become a premier senior producer in the silver mining sector. We find, build, and operate quality silver mines in a sustainable way to create value for our stakeholders. By continually improving what we do and how we do it, we aim to make a positive difference in peoples’ lives. In addition to maximizing the potential of existing operations, we have a compelling pipeline of exploration and development projects to facilitate our goal of becoming a premier senior silver producer.

About this Report

Our 2017 Annual Review and Sustainability Report, which is presented on this website, discusses our commitments and performance last year related to the operational and sustainable topics that matter most to our stakeholders.


Our material issues and impacts shape the content of the report, and our process for identifying these is detailed on the Material Topics section. We view material issues as those topics that:

  • have a direct or indirect impact on our business, including the ability to create and preserve economic, social and environmental value
  • have the potential to influence the perception of stakeholders who make decisions or assessments regarding our significant economic, environmental and social impacts

1 The Company reports non-IFRS measures which include cash costs net of by-products on a payable silver basis, total production costs per ounce, all-in sustaining costs per ounce and direct production costs per tonne, in order to manage and evaluate operating performance at each of the Company’s mines. These measures, some established by industry organizations, are widely used in the silver mining industry as a benchmark for performance, but do not have a standardized meaning. These measures are reported on and reconciled in the Company’s MD&A.
