MAG Silver Announces Planned Retirement of CXO

MAG Silver Corp. (TSX NYSE American: MAG) ("MAG", or the " Company ") announces the planned retirement of Co-Founder and Chief Exploration Officer (" CXO "), Dr. Peter Megaw, effective May 21, 2024. Peter has been an integral part of MAG Silver's success, applying over 45 years of relevant experience to our silver and gold exploration efforts, with the past ten years dedicated to serving as MAG's CXO.

Peter's retirement marks the culmination of over 20 years of dedicated service to MAG. Under his leadership, Juanicipio, one of the world's leading silver deposits, was discovered, financed, developed and is now in operation. Beyond the discovery of Juanicipio, as Co-Founder, Peter played an integral role in the development of the Company including its IPO, seven years of service on the Board, its acquisition of strategic exploration properties in prolific jurisdictions and its growth into the substantial silver producer it is today. Peter will continue as a consultant to the Company following his retirement from executive duties at MAG.

"On behalf of MAG, I would like to extend heartfelt thanks to Peter for his tireless efforts and leadership," said George Paspalas, President and CEO of MAG. "While he is retiring from executive duties, we will continue to benefit from his wisdom and expertise in his ongoing consulting role. Peter's vision as a founder, passion for geology, commitment to excellence, and dedication to our projects have left an indelible mark on MAG Silver."

In his new role as a consultant, Peter will provide strategic guidance and insight to MAG's management team, drawing upon his extensive experience in Juanicipio's geology as well as advancing the hub-and-spoke thesis at the Deer Trail property in Utah.

"It has been a privilege to have had a hand in MAG's remarkable journey over the last two decades and a great honor to collaborate with a brilliant group of colleagues over that time. Working with Dan MacInnis and George Paspalas, CEOs who really get exploration, has made all the difference for me…and MAG," said Peter Megaw, outgoing CXO of MAG. "As I segue into a more relaxed lifestyle of writing, family and mineralogy, I look forward to continuing to contribute to MAG's ongoing success by supporting her exploration team as they advance the enviable portfolio of assets we've assembled. MAG has a bright future and I am excited to remain involved in shaping her trajectory."

Top 10 Silver-producing Countries (Updated 2024)

There are many factors to consider when investing in silver-focused stocks, including the silver price outlook, the company's management team and whether its assets are in one of the top silver-producing countries.

Location can be key, and knowing the top silver-producing countries can help investors made sound decisions. For example, high silver production in a particular nation might indicate mining-friendly laws or high-grade deposits.

So which country produces the most silver? In 2023, Mexico was once again the world’s leading silver-producing country. Global silver production increased marginally for the period, rising to 26,000 metric tons (MT) due to increased output out of Mexico as well as Chile, where new silver mines have come online or are ramping up output.

Chris Marcus: Can the Silver Price Hit US$50 in 2024?

Chris Marcus, founder of Arcadia Economics and author of "The Big Silver Short," broke down silver's rise above US$30 per ounce, outlining the wide array of factors that are driving the metal right now.

He said that silver has followed gold, which started to move around mid-February and early March, spurred on by expectations that the US Federal Reserve was going to cut interest rates. It still has not done so.

"It's been interesting that you would see gold start rallying then, and then silver follow," said Marcus. "I wonder if there's some degree to which, when you have forces like the US debt and the deficits, and the Fed's balance sheet growing over time ... eventually there's going to be some times where you see (gold and silver) start to move."

ASX Silver Stocks: 5 Biggest Companies in 2024

Precious metal silver is often compared to gold, and is important in jewellery and as a safe haven.

Unlike gold, silver also has many industrial uses, including in the production of electronics, automobiles, medicine and photography, and, of course, silverware. Energy transition applications are a growing demand sector for silver — the metal is valued for its conductive capacity, which makes it particularly useful in the production of photovoltaic panels.

Silver supply has tightened in recent years as industrial demand rises, and this was one of the factors that helped the silver price break through the US$30 per ounce mark in May for the first time since 2013.
