About Us


Our vision is to become a premier mid-tier producer of precious metals, benefitting both our stakeholders and the communities in which we operate.

Golden Minerals Company (TSX and NYSE American:  AUMN) is a Colorado-based precious metals exploration and development company that offers investors leverage to silver and gold prices.

We seek to establish Golden Minerals Company as a premier mid-tier precious metals mining company, with efforts focused on properties in Mexico, Argentina and Nevada (USA). We own or control a portfolio of precious metals projects -- including the Velardeña Properties and Rodeo gold project in Durango State, Mexico; El Quevar, an advanced exploration silver project with district potential located in the Salta province of Argentina; the Sand Canyon gold-silver project in northwestern Nevada; and around a dozen additional projects located within the traditional silver-producing areas of Mexico. 

We have leased one of our two Mexican processing mills to Hecla Mining Company since mid-2015, and Hecla has secured the use of this facility through 2020. This arrangement continues to provide us with cash flow that in turn supports our exploration activities.

We are led by accomplished and driven management and directors whose decades of multi-faceted experience combine to provide strong strategic direction for the company. Our team is united in working toward realizing Golden’s vision.

Vision & Strategy

We seek to execute our vision by:

  • Focusing primarily on silver and gold properties located in Mexico, Argentina and Nevada
  • Advancing the Rodeo gold project - with mining and processing projected to start in early 2021
  • Continuing to prepare the Velardeña Properties for a potential restart of mining using bio-oxidation for gold processing
  • Advancing the El Quevar Project (Salta, Argentina) via partner-funded exploration (Barrick)
  • Exploring high potential properties already in pipeline in Mexico, Argentina, and Nevada
