He attributed the increase in gold production compared ot the second quarter to “a direct result of the improved gold grades and recoveries."

Despite the increased output, the company is sticking to its 2017 guidance of 4.0 - 4.1 mln Ag eq oz (based on a 70:1 silver:gold ratio).

The silver mining company also said that it is still awaiting final approvals for the Topia Phase II tailings facility. Since its formal application in July, the environmental assessment study has lapsed and requires resubmission with the inclusion of expanded technical information.

It plans to file this by mid-October and a response to the resubmitted study and the overall permitting is expected within two months of filing.
