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 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, the Velardeña Properties and Rodeo gold project in Durango State, Mexico, 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 El Quevar silver project (Salta province, Argentina) via partner-funded exploration
  • Exploring properties carefully selected for high grades, low development costs and near-term production
  • Acquiring advanced or operating properties, primarily in Mexico
  • Acquiring and advancing low cost/high potential exploration projects in Nevada and Mexico
