Investment Concerns

Silver Standard’s Pirquitas silver mine in Argentina would end San Miguel open pit activities in 2016 and begin lower grade stockpile processing. Stockpile processing would likely extend through late 2017.

The company is exploring the Chinchillas silver-lead-zinc deposit “which could extend the life at Pirquitas, but this may not prove economical,” Hacking wrote. He added that the valuation on the stock was “relatively full.”
