Starcore Announces 2nd Quarter Production Results






Starcore International Mines Ltd. (TSX: SAM) announces production results for the second fiscal quarter ended October 31, 2021, at its San Martin Mine in Queretaro, Mexico. The production continues to be stable continuing to produce profitable ounces at a rate that is improving every month along with the improving gold and silver market prices that we are experiencing.


The most relevant item during this quarter are the increases in proven and probable reserves as a result of the continuous exploration work being performed by DDH and development. As an example, the development of the manto-breccia zone discovered in the Cuerpo 31 earlier this year has resulted in a great deal of the improved production for the current quarter.


“We are pleased at how the exploration has been improving quarter by quarter and we are now starting on the exploration to find the manto – breccia deposit of the Cuerpo 32, which is the continuation of the Cuerpo 31 after the fault,” stated Salvador Garcia, Chief Operating officer of the company.
