Great Panther Silver (TSX: GPR; NYSE American: GPL) (“Great Panther”; the “Company”) announces its fourth quarter (“Q4”) and 2017 production results from its two wholly-owned Mexican silver mining operations: the Topia Mine in Durango and the Guanajuato Mine Complex (“GMC”), which includes the San Ignacio Mine.
James Bannantine, President and CEO, said:
“Great Panther’s 2017 production was consistent with the previous year, however, this was a considerable achievement given the work completed to accommodate the tailings expansion and plant improvements at the Topia Mine in the first quarter of the year.
We are also pleased with the recent completion of the permitting process for the Phase II tailings storage facility at Topia. While the regulatory process took longer than we expected, our team did an outstanding job of maintaining operations by extending capacity while improving the state of the existing facility.”
