Business Description

Industry: Metals & Mining » Silver
Compare:CDE, SLW, PAAS, AG, HL » details
Traded in other countries:MAG.Canada, MQ8.Germany
MAG Silver Corp. was originally incorporated under the Company Act of British Columbia on April 21, 1999 under the name '583882 B.C. Ltd.'. On June 28, 1999, in anticipation of becoming a capital pool company, the Company changed its name to 'Mega Capital Investments Inc.' On April 22, 2003, it changed its name to 'MAG Silver Corp.' to reflect its new business upon the completion of its Qualifying Transaction. The Company is in the mineral acquisition, exploration and development business. It is in the exploration stage and there is no assurance that a commercially viable mineral deposit exists on any of its properties. The Company's property interests are located in Mexico. Its three most material properties are its 44% joint venture interest in the Juanicipio property and the 100% owned Cinco de Mayo property. The roughly 8,000 hectare Juanicipio property is located in Zacatecas State, Mexico just outside the mining town of Fresnillo. The Juanicipio property lies 5 kilometres west from the main production head-frame of the Fresnillo Mine and approximately 2 kilometres west from the Saucito Vein, owned by Industrias Penoles, S.A. de C.V. and currently undergoing production development. The Cinco de Mayo property is located approximately 190 kilometres northwest of the city of Chihuahua, in northern Chihuahua State, Mexico. Cinco de Mayo was acquired by way of an option agreement dated February 26, 2004. The mineral exploration industry is intensely competitive and the Company competes in all aspects of its operations with a substantial number of large established mining companies with substantial capabilities and greater financial and technical resources than it. The Company's operations are subject to environmental regulations promulgated by government agencies from time to time.
