Outlook for the balance of 2024

  • Continue exploration of the expanded property package along the Otu fault to build total resources and identify the next mine on the Company’s Antioquia properties.
  • Bring the permitted Machuca mine into production and complete the permit application process for the Nechi mine to increase minable resources to feed the el Limon and El Bagre mills.
  • Advance the formalization process of small miners working on the Company’s concessions, aiming for 10% of the ounces produced to be from these small miners.
  • Continue discussions with local permitted small miners to facilitate contract processing at the El Limon mill.
  • Review additional strategic additions to the Company’s concession package, focusing on trends identified by the exploration program.
  • Drill the Cordero deposit at depth using the new underground drill purchased by the Company to confirm the deposit’s extension, increasing the Cordero resource.


Geoff Hampson, Soma’s President and CEO, states, “The transition to a conventional mining method continued in Q1, increasing costs per ounce. This transition will largely be completed by the end of Q2, coinciding with the opening of higher-grade zones. The combination of higher grades, reduced development and waste rock, and an increase in the number of stopes will all contribute to a strong second half of the year. We are very pleased with the progress made in understanding and interpreting the structural geology, which we believe will lead to additional resources, even in some of the mines on our property that were thought to be depleted.”
