Golden Minerals Company offers investors leverage to gold and silver prices. We successfully transitioned from exploration company to gold-silver producer when we commenced production at our Rodeo gold-silver open pit mine (Durango State, Mexico) in January 2021.

We hold independently-prepared Preliminary Economic Assessments (NI 43-101-compliant) on four of our precious metals projects that total $164M in net present value – with all PEA’s prepared based upon gold and silver prices well below current levels. The Rodeo gold project presents a low capital cost/high profit margin opportunity to realize significant cashflow that can be used in part to self-fund production start-up at the larger silver/gold Velardeña Properties. Repeated testing of sulfide concentrates using bio-oxidation processing technology demonstrates improved gold recovery from pyrite concentrates and potential for Velardeña to become a highly profitable operation over at least a 10-year mine life. Both Velardeña and our district-scale El Quevar silver project in Salta, Argentina present additional upside in the form of significant resource expansion and thus value appreciation.
