Pan American Silver Corp. (NASDAQ: PAAS) (TSX: PAAS) ("Pan American" or the "Company") today reported unaudited results for the quarter ended June 30, 2022 ("Q2 2022").

"Operations at our flagship asset, La Colorada, have improved significantly, with silver production rising to approximately 1.7 million ounces in Q2," said Michael Steinmann , President and Chief Executive Officer. "However, Pan American's Q2 results were markedly impacted by the underperformance at Dolores and our determination that recording an impairment of this asset was required. The remaining operations performed largely in line with our expectations, recovering well from the impact of the COVID-19 Omicron wave in the first quarter of 2022. We continue to expect consolidated production to be weighted to the back half of 2022, especially for the Gold Segment due to mine sequencing at Shahuindo and La Arena. Our financial position remains solid with cash and short-term investments of $241.3 million and an undrawn line of credit of $500 million ."

Consolidated Q2 2022 Highlights:
  • Silver production of 4.5 million ounces and gold production of 128.3 thousand ounces.

  • Revenue was $340.5 million , inclusive of a negative $9.3 million adjustment on open concentrate shipments, largely related to the decline in metal prices towards the end of Q2 2022. Revenue in Q2 2022 excluded inventory build-ups of 34.2 thousand ounces of silver and 8.5 thousand ounces of gold.

  • Net loss of $173.6 million ( $0.83 basic loss per share), impacted by a pre-tax impairment charge of $99.1 million recorded for Dolores and $62.8 million in net realizable value (NRV) inventory adjustments, primarily at Dolores.

  • Adjusted loss of $6.5 million ( $0.03 basic adjusted loss per share) excludes the impact from the Dolores impairment and the heap inventory write-down.

  • Operations generated $20.8 million of cash flow, net of $42.4 million in tax payments and a $19.5 million build-up in working capital.

  • Silver Segment Cash Costs and All-in Sustaining Costs ("AISC") per silver ounce were $12.10 and $17.30 , respectively. Excluding NRV inventory adjustments, Silver Segment AISC was $15.90 per ounce.

  • Gold Segment Cash Costs and AISC per gold ounce were $1,132 and $2,051 , respectively. Excluding NRV inventory adjustments, Gold Segment AISC was $1,540 per ounce.

  • As at June 30, 2022 , Pan American had working capital of $513.9 million , inclusive of cash and short-term investment balances of $241.3 million ; a long-term investment in Maverix Metals Inc. ("Maverix") with a fair value of $112.5 million ; and $500.0 million available under our sustainability-linked credit facility. Total debt of $63.2 million was related to lease liabilities and construction loans.

  • A cash dividend of $0.11 per common share has been declared, payable on or about September 2, 2022 , to holders of record of Pan American's common shares as of the close on August 22, 2022 . Aligned with the Company's dividend policy, the dividend is comprised of a base dividend of $0.10 per common share and a variable dividend component of $0.01 per common share. The dividends are eligible dividends for Canadian income tax purposes.

  • Management has updated its Guidance for 2022. See the "2022 Guidance" section of this news release for further details, and the Company's Management's Discussion and Analysis for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022 .
Dolores Update

Management identified the following impairment indicators at the Dolores Mine as part of our quarterly review of impairment indicators:


Year-to-date 2022 silver and gold production being less than that expected, driven by lower grades in Phase 9B of the open pit. The exploration drilling originally conducted for Phase 9B of the open pit had some high-grade intercepts that were to be mined during the first half of 2022. These high grades were not fully realized during mining. Management now believes that these high-grade intercepts contributed to a localized overestimation of the contained ounces within Phase 9B. The updated mineral resource and production plan for the life of mine adjusts for this overestimation on the remainder of Phase 9B;


inflationary pressures, which have particularly affected this shorter-life asset where most of the mining will be completed in the next two years;


the suspension of underground mining operations in Q2 2022 due to inflationary cost pressures, and the subsequent reclassification of underground mineral reserves to mineral resources; and,


a reduction in the expected duration of economic leaching to the year 2030.

These factors resulted in an impairment to the mineral property, plant and equipment, as well as a net realizable value ("NRV") inventory adjustment, largely related to the heap inventory.


a pre-tax impairment charge of $99.1 million; and,


an NRV adjustment of $55.4 million.

ILO 169 Consultation Process for Escobal Advances to Next Phase

The final meeting of the pre-consultation phase of the ILO 169 consultation process for the Escobal mine in Guatemala was held on July 20, 2022 , and was formally announced at a joint news conference held by the Xinka Parliament and the Guatemalan Ministry of Energy and Mines. A total of eight meetings were held during the pre-consultation. The process has now advanced to the consultation phase, with the first meeting scheduled for August 21, 2022 .

This news release should be read in conjunction with Pan American's unaudited Condensed Interim Consolidated Financial Statements and our Management's Discussion and Analysis for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022. This material is available on Pan American's website at, on SEDAR at and on EDGAR at .


Based on results for the first six months of 2022 and the expected results for the remainder of the year, Management provides the following update to the 2022 Operating Outlook included in the Company's 2021 MD&A dated February 23, 2022 :

  • The estimates for silver and gold production have been reaffirmed, but are expected to be at the low end of the ranges, primarily due to the production shortfall at Dolores.

  • The estimates for Silver Segment Cash Costs and AISC have been reaffirmed.

  • The estimate for Gold Segment Cash Costs is expected to be at the high end of the original guidance range and the estimate for AISC, excluding NRV adjustments, has been revised from between $1,240 and $1,365 per ounce to between $1,450 and $1,550 per ounce. The revision reflects the production shortfall at Dolores, global inflationary pressures and an increase in estimated consolidated sustaining capital spending.

  • The estimate for sustaining capital has been increased from between $200.0 million and $210.0 million to between $240.0 million and $250.0 million due to a change in the financing of certain planned sustaining capital investments (funding projects directly rather than entering construction loans), which will decrease future expected cash outflows and loan obligations. The estimate for project capital has been decreased from between $80.0 million and $95.0 million to between $55.0 million and $60.0 million , based on expected delays in spending at both the La Colorada Skarn and Timmins projects. The decrease in capital for the La Colorada Skarn project is due to delaying the design and initiation of the access ramp developments to optimize alignments with the highly efficient bulk mining method designs being considered. The revisions bring the total capital expenditures anticipated for the year to between $295.0 million and $310.0 million .

These estimates are forward-looking statements and information that are subject to the cautionary note associated with forward-looking statements and information at the end of this news release. The following tables provide Management's 2022 Guidance forecasts, as at August 10, 2022 , including revised Gold Segment AISC and revised capital expenditures.

Alternative Performance (Non-GAAP) Measures

In this news release, we refer to measures that are not generally accepted accounting principle ("non-GAAP") financial measures. These measures are widely used in the mining industry as a benchmark for performance, but do not have a standardized meaning as prescribed by IFRS as an indicator of performance, and may differ from methods used by other companies with similar descriptions. These non-GAAP financial measures include:

  • Cash Costs. Pan American's method of calculating cash costs may differ from the methods used by other entities and, accordingly, Pan American's Cash Costs may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other entities. Investors are cautioned that Cash Costs should not be construed as an alternative to production costs, depreciation and amortization, and royalties determined in accordance with IFRS as an indicator of performance.

  • Adjusted earnings and basic adjusted earnings per share. Pan American believes that these measures better reflect normalized earnings as they eliminate items that in management's judgment are subject to volatility as a result of factors, which are unrelated to operations in the period, and/or relate to items that will settle in future periods.

  • All-in Sustaining Costs per silver or gold ounce sold, net of by-product credits ("AISC"). Pan American has adopted AISC as a measure of its consolidated operating performance and its ability to generate cash from all operations collectively, and Pan American believes it is a more comprehensive measure of the cost of operating our consolidated business than traditional cash costs per payable ounce, as it includes the cost of replacing ounces through exploration, the cost of ongoing capital investments (sustaining capital), general and administrative expenses, as well as other items that affect Pan American's consolidated earnings and cash flow.

  • Total debt is calculated as the total current and non-current portions of: long-term debt, finance lease liabilities and loans payable. Total debt does not have any standardized meaning prescribed by GAAP and is therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. Pan American and certain investors use this information to evaluate the financial debt leverage of Pan American.

  • Net cash is calculated as cash and cash equivalents plus short-term investments, other than equity securities less total debt.

  • Working capital is calculated as current assets less current liabilities. Working capital does not have any standardized meaning prescribed by GAAP and is therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. Pan American and certain investors use this information to evaluate whether Pan American is able to meet its current obligations using its current assets.

  • Total available liquidity is calculated as the sum of Cash and cash equivalents, Short-term Investments, and the amount available on the Credit Facility. Total available liquidity does not have any standardized meaning prescribed by GAAP and is therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. Pan American and certain investors use this information to evaluate the liquid assets available to Pan American.

Readers should refer to the "Alternative Performance (non-GAAP) Measures" section of Pan American's Management's Discussion and Analysis for the period ended December 31, 2021, for a more detailed discussion of these and other non-GAAP measures and their calculation.

How to Invest in Silver (Updated 2022)

How to Invest in Silver (Updated 2022)

How does one invest in silver given the metal’s notorious volatility? That’s a question on many investors’ minds.

Silver has long been an attractive vehicle for not only displaying and storing wealth, but generating it too. Silver bugs rave about the growth opportunities to be had in a price rally. However, what goes up must come down, and the silver market is prone to deep dives.

Before investing in silver, one should consider the pros and cons, the several ways it can be added to a portfolio, the elements that affect silver’s movements and where its price could be headed.

VIDEO — Nick Santiago: Silver Breakout Has Begun, Gold to Follow After Hitting US$1,500


Back in January, Nick Santiago of was bearish on gold in the short term.

Speaking at a time when the yellow metal was just below US$1,800 per ounce, he said he was expecting a "pretty substantial decline" in the next year or so — in fact, he saw gold potentially falling as low as US$1,450.

With Q3 drawing to a close and gold near US$1,625, Santiago still thinks it has further to fall.

Should You Invest in Silver Bullion? (Updated 2022)

Investing in silver bullion has pros and cons, and what’s right for one investor may not work for another.

Interest in the silver market tends to flourish whenever the silver price increases, with investors beginning to wonder if it is the right time to add physical silver to their investment portfolios.

While silver can be volatile, the precious metal is also seen as a safe-haven asset, similar to its sister metal gold. Safe-haven assets can protect investors in times of uncertainty, and with tensions running high, they could be a good choice for those looking to preserve their wealth in difficult times.

What Was the Highest Price for Silver? (Updated 2022)

Like its sister metal gold, silver has been attracting renewed attention as a safe-haven asset.

Although it continues to exhibit its hallmark volatility, many silver investors believe that a bull market is on the way for the precious metal. Experts are optimistic about the future, and as a result, some market watchers are putting forth price forecasts and asking themselves, “What was the highest price for silver?”

The answer reveals how much potential there is for the silver price to rise. Read on for a look at silver's historical moves, and what they could mean for both the price of silver today and the white metal’s price in the future.
