The Mirasol Silver Mine is located 5.5 kilometers southeast of the Guadalupe Mill. It was a greenfields discovery by the IMPACT team. It began production in the third quarter of 2014 after exploration drilling produced a number of high-grade intersections including 216 g/t silver over 7.1 meters, 985 g/t silver over 1.8 meters and 288 g/t silver over 3.2 meters.
Mirasol is playing a key role in the transition to mining higher grade silver veins in response to lower silver prices. In 2015 the mine contributed 15% of the feed to the Guadalupe mill. Diluted mining grades at Mirasol during Q4-2015 ranged from 176 to 179 g/t silver. Mirasol is expected to contribute significantly to overall production in 2016.
