More on the Avino Mine
The Avino Vein was mined during 27 years of open pit and underground production prior to 2001. It’s 1.6 km long and 60 m wide on the surface and sits right next to the processing plant. The deepest level mined prior to 2001 was level 11.5 (330 m below the surface). The mine closed in November 2001 due to low metal prices and the closure of a key smelter. From 1997 – 2001, the mine and mill, averaged 1,000 tpd and achieved up to 1,300 tpd. During the final 3 full years of operation, production averaged 1.7 million ounces of silver equivalent annually.
Following several years of redevelopment, the Company completed its Avino Mine and mill expansion in 2014. Full scale underground operations commenced at the Elena Tolosa area of the mine on January 1, 2015.
The Company’s mission and strategy is to create shareholder value through its focus on profitable organic growth at the historic Avino Property and the strategic acquisition of mineral exploration and mining properties.
