Silver production, Chinese new year, and 70 active drills; we cover a lot of ground in this episode of Mining Now with Lon Shaver, Vice-President. Silvercorp Inc. is a Canadian mining company producing silver, lead and zinc metals in concentrates from mines in China. Over the last 15 years they have produced over 79 million ounces of silver and 1.1 billion pounds of lead and zinc between their GC Mine and Ying Mining District. Lon discusses their approach of not going to equity markets and generating free cash flow through ups and down. He also unpacks Silvercorp’s growth strategy through an aggressive drilling program, investments, possible acquisitions, and working as an incubator both financially and through corporate support for jr mining operations.
