The first silver doré bar production at First Majestic’s T.FR Del Toro Silver Mine in Zacatecas, Mexico was announced December 4, 2013. In making that announcement, First Majestic CEO Keith Neumeyer stated, “The commencement of silver doré production at Del Toro is another significant milestone for First Majestic this year. The Del Toro Silver Mine continues to be a substantial growth driver for the Company as silver production ramps up from this new mine. With the plant construction nearly complete, this achievement puts First Majestic on track to reaching its tenth consecutive year of growth in silver production.”
We had the opportunity to speak with Mr. Neumeyer December 16th, 2013, “Since 2005 we have invested approximately $150 million dollars in the Del Toro mine. It’s the Company’s largest investment ever so achieving production from Del Toro is our most important achievement in 2013.” said Neumeyer.
