Business Description

Industry: Metals & Mining » Industrial Metals & Minerals
Compare:BHP, RIO, CLF, XSRAY, AAUKY » details
Traded in other countries:AUM.Canada, 7GB.Germany
Golden Minerals Co. was incorporated in Delaware under the Delaware General Corporation Law in March 2009 and is the successor to Apex Silver Mines Ltd for purposes of reporting under the U.S. Securities Exchange Act. It is is a mining Company with a focus on exploration, development, providing mining services, and growth through strategic business transactions. The Company is an emerging precious metals producer, primarily engaged in the operation and further development of its recently acquired Velardeña gold, silver and base metals mines in the State of Durango, Mexico, and in the advancement of the 100% owned El Quevar advanced silver exploration property in the province of Salta, Argentina. The Company's business strategy is to establish Golden Minerals as a mid-tier precious metals producer, focusing on expansion of production and operational improvements at the Velardeña Operations and continued advancement of the El Quevar project. The Velardeña Operations are comprised of four mines and two processing plants within the Velardeña mining district, which is located in the municipality of Cuencamé, in the northeast quadrant of the State of Durango, Mexico. Of the four mines comprising the Velardeña Operations, the Santa Juana, San Juanes and San Mateo underground mines are located on the Velardeña property. The Santa Juana mine, which has been the focus of ECU's mining efforts since 1995, is currently a producing mine, as is the San Juanes mine. The San Mateo mine is currently in the development stage. The Company owns a 320 tonne-per-day flotation sulfide mill situated near the town of Velardeña. The mill has fully operational lead, zinc, and pyrite flotation circuit which produces lead, zinc and pyrite concentrates from the sulfide ore. On the Chicago property, the oldest rocks outcropping are Cretaceous limestones of the Aurora Formation which are highly folded. These limestones are affected by the intrusion of the Tertiary dioritic stocks and dykes. The general geology of the Chicago property is very similar to the geology of the Velardeña property. The Company's El Quevar silver project is located in the San Antonio de los Cobres municipality, Salta province, in the Altiplano region of northwestern Argentina, approximately 300 kilometers by road northwest of the city of Salta, the capital city of the province.
