Guanajuato Mine Complex
The Guanajuato Mine Complex is Great Panther Silver's flagship operation. The property consists of 32 claims, totalling 2,621 hectares. The concessions are 100% owned by Great Panther's Mexican subsidiary, Minera Mexicana El Rosario, S.A. de C.V. The main claim block covers 4.2 km of the highly significant Veta Madre vein structure and is located on the Central Plateau of Mexico in the State of Guanajuato. The City of Guanajuato, where the mines are located, is 380 km by road northwest of Mexico City and is serviced by an international airport near the city of Leon.
Robert F. Brown, P. Eng., Vice President of Exploration for the Company is the Qualified Person for both the Guanajuato mine and the Topia mine, under the meaning of NI 43-101. Charles Brown, Chief Operating Officer, oversees aspects of Great Panther Silver's mines relating to mining and metallurgy.
San Ignacio Property
The San Ignacio Property is a group of contiguous leases of covering approximately 4.5 km in length of the strike of the precious metal bearing La Luz vein system which is located about 8km to the north west of the city of Guanajuato in the state of Guanajuato, Mexico. Great Panther holds a 100% interest in the Property through its wholly owned Mexican subsidiary, Minera Mexicana El Rosario, S.A.de C.V.
Silver was first found in the area in 1548 and there are seven historical shafts and numerous pits on the property.
Great Panther Silver began actively exploring the area in 2009 and initiated a diamond drilling program in October of 2010 and is still ongoing. A total of 9,600 metres of drilling have been budgeted for 2012.
A NI 43-101 compliant initial Mineral Resource Estimate was released in May 2012, superseding the one released in October 2011. The new Inferred mineral resource is estimated to contain 6,894,000 Ag eq oz in 826,000 tonnes averaging 121g/t silver and 2.28g/t gold (using a 125g/t Ag Eq cut-off). This version 2 resource estimate fills in and expands the strike length of the mineralized zones to 650 metres. It also increases the tonnage by 35%, and the Ag eq oz by 53% over the previous estimate.
The San Ignacio Project is expected to realize its potential during 2012 with an intensive exploration and mine development program being planned and will no doubt add to the growth potential for 2013.
