Darren Blasutti, president and CEO of Americas Silver, commented:

We delivered a solid operational quarter due in large part to the restructuring plan we put in place earlier this year combined with our continued focus on cost reductions and productivity improvements despite lower lead grades at the Galena Complex. For the remainder of the year, our focus will be on improving our Cosalá Operations mine planning, securing financing for our San Rafael project and increasing mining in higher lead grade areas at the Galena Complex in order to maintain our momentum on lowering costs to achieve or exceed our stated guidance for the year.
