It is the world’s second largest primary silver producer worldwide it has the largest silver reserves with more than 550 million ounce reserve. The recent rally in Gold and Silver have helped the performance of the stock price. The company reported strong first quarter earning, but the second quarter can see a weaker result due to the closure of several of its minings from the Covid-19.
The next several years can potentially be a very supportive market for gold and silver due to the ultra loose monetary policies by central banks.

In the first quarter of 2020, the company produced 5.6 million ounces of silver with AISC (All-in sustaining cost) of $15.26 per ounce. It also produced 156,000 ounces of gold with $969 / ounce AISC.
