In 2010, the Peñasquito mine achieved commercial production on schedule and on budget. Full-year 2013 gold production is expected to be between 360,000 to 400,000 ounces; production of silver is expected to total 20 to 21 million ounces; zinc production is expected to total 285 to 305 million pounds and lead production is expeted to total 145 to 160 milion pounds.
Peñasquito will be Mexico's largest open pit mine, consisting of two open pits - Peñasco and Chile Colorado - containing gold, silver, lead and zinc. Exploration continues to expand the high-grade manto deposits beneath the Peñasquito pit. Assay results have demonstrated significant potential for concurrent, high-grade production from mantos below the current pits, later in the life of the mine.
