A primary Silver Producer in Durango, Mexico

September 26, 2019

Avino Silver & Gold is a primary silver producer in Durango, Mexico

Avino Silver & Gold Mines operates two silver mines in Mexico with a gold project under development in British Columbia. Through Avino’s 50-year history, their innovative and pioneering approach has fostered resilience, initiative, enterprise and long-term relationships while shaping Avino into one of the industry’s lowest-cost silver producers.

Operating in Canada and Mexico, Avino holds two producing precious metals projects plus another in trial production. The company also maintains a diversified pipeline of gold, silver and base metals exploration properties. With the exception of the Avino mine, which is owned 99.28%, all the company’s properties are owned 100%.

Avino Mine

The Avino Vein was mined during 27 years of open pit and underground production prior to 2001. It is 1.6 km long and 60 m wide on the surface and situated right next to the processing plant. The deepest level mined prior to 2001 was level 11.5 (330 m below the surface). The mine was closed in November 2001 due to low metal prices (Silver US$4.37/oz, Gold US$283/oz, Copper US$0.65/lb) 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.

Bralorne Gold Mine

The Bralorne Gold Mine, is located in southwestern British Columbia where a major drill program is targeting unexplored areas.

Avino Silver & Gold Mines acquired Bralorne Gold Mines in October of 2014, giving Avino full control and ownership of the Bralorne camp. Avino is implementing a multi-stage, multi-year plan to discover new mineralized zones, increase gold resources, expand the mine’s operating capacity and realize a much more efficient operation that will have the potential to contribute significantly to Avino’s overall production in the coming years.
