Avino Silver and Gold focused on operations in Mexico and Canada
Avino is a low cost primary silver producer. Their vision is to help empower and connect the world by supplying metals for investment, technology and industries. Primarily through operations in Mexico and Canada.
The company’s main asset is in Durango, Mexico. There, they produce an equivalent of 2.7 ounces of silver annually. The company is also focusing on the Hanging Wall Breccia Zone; they are doing underground development drifting to this new area.
Avino Silver & Gold Mines acquired Bralorne Gold Mines in October of 2014, giving Avino full control and ownership of the Bralorne camp. Furthermore, the Bralorne Gold Mine, located in southwestern British Columbia, operated under trial production status between 2010 and 2014 and remains in the exploration and evaluation stage.
In late 2017, Avino decided to pause development and expansion activities and renew their focus on exploration. Because of this, they plan to facilitate an operation capable of sustaining profitable production at a higher throughput over the long term.
Ultimately, the goal of the current exploration is to target under-explored portions of known veins. In addition, they want to target new discoveries in nearby under-explored areas that share similar geological structural attributes to the Bralorne, Pioneer and King Mines.
