Pan American Silver Corp. is a Canadian silver mining company based in Vancouver, BC. The Company was founded in 1994 with the intention to provide investors with the best vehicle to gain real exposure to silver.
Today, after 16 years of consecutive production and financial growth, Pan American is the second-largest primary silver mining company in the world, with eight operating silver mines in Peru, Mexico, Argentina and Bolivia. The Company recently completed the acquisition of Minefinders Corporation Ltd. and incorporated the Dolores silver/gold mine to its portfolio of assets. Pan American also owns the Navidad silver deposit, one of the largest undeveloped silver deposits in the world, located in Chubut, Argentina, the Calcatreu gold project, located in Rio Negro, also in Argentina and the La Virginia development project, located in Sonora, Mexico.
Pan American's mission is to be the largest low-cost primary silver mining company worldwide. Our growth strategy is based on the continued increase of low-cost silver production through the efficient operation and expansion of our existing mines, an aggressive exploration program to replace the silver ounces mined each year and the increase of our silver Reserves and Resources, and the acquisition and development of new silver-rich deposits.
The Company has a recognized team of industry-leading professionals with a wealth of experience in exploration, project development, mining operations and corporate finance.
