Marcus, who is also the author of the book "The Big Silver Short," pointed to comments from Jeff Currie of investment bank Goldman Sachs (NYSE:GS) and Rostin Behnam of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), saying they show how policies have been used to tamp down the price of the white metal.

All financial information is prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS") and all dollar amounts are expressed in thousands of United States dollars, except per unit amounts, unless otherwise indicated.

  • Revenues increased by 55% to $14.6 million during Q3 2021 (Q3 2020 - $9.4 million).

  • Gross profit increased by 190% to $3.7 million during Q3 2021 (Q3 2020 - $1.3 million).

Carlos Silva, CEO of Santacruz, stated; "We continue to increase our mine production and revenue for the third and fifth consecutive quarter respectively. Production costs were impacted as a result of a Mexican labour reform that came into effect during the quarter. This labour reform required the Company to recognize certain labour liability accruals for their employees, including but not limited to vacation, holiday bonuses, annual bonuses, savings funds, and seniority departure payments which totaled approximately $1.3 million. In addition, a non-recurring charge to administrative expenses of $0.4 million related to severance payments resulting from the decision to place the Rosario mine on care and maintenance, various non-recurring costs associated with the Zimapan Mine acquisition and other non-cash charges also impacted the quarter-end results."
