Silver Production Grew By 2 Million Ounces This Year


Most economic sectors in Peru are growing and showing great investment opportunities.

During the first half of this year, silver production in Peru increased by two million ounces compared to the same period in 2016. This was the information revealed by the platform Thomson Reuters Eikon. This growth comes mostly from the Las Bambas mining deposit in Apurimac.

Some of the leading silver producing companies are Buenaventura, Hochschild Mining, Volcan Cia Minera, among others. It is curious to see this result, an elevation in the production of silver in Peru while silver production fell 8 million ounces on a global scale in the first 6 months of 2017 compared to last year, said Dante Aranda, Senior Mining Analyst at Thomson Reuters.

The strongest declines in silver production at a global scale were from Chile, Australia, Guatemala, Bolivia, Argentina and the United States, being Chile the country with the greatest decline, about 6.4 million ounces. Despite the latest statistics published by the Ministry of Energy and Mines, silver production rose in the first half of the year in Peru, +2 million ounces.

Mining activities along with infrastructure projects are the most popular options for investments here in Peru and it is also the country with the biggest reserves in silver in the entire world, you can see more of this information in this article.
