- SLW’s Q2 results were a mixed bag as despite record production, its bottom line fell due to a slight increase in costs and a 17% decline in price.
- SLW, however, seems to have hit the bottom as silver pricing looks set to improve going forward due to improving industrial demand and lower production due to idling of mines.
- SLW’s operating costs are historically fixed at $4 per ounce of silver and $400 per ounce of gold, indicating that an increase in prices will lead to margin enhancements.
- SLW is well-positioned to satisfy the improving demand for silver on the back of its Constancia and Salobo mines, which will drive its overall production 40% higher by 2019.
