Silver Production

Silver mine production rose for the ninth successive year in 2011, to a fresh record of 761.6 Moz (23,689 t). Production from primary silver mines fell modestly due to lower processed grades and one-off disruptions at several large operations, including the world’s two largest primary mines, Cannington and Fresnillo. These losses prevailed over production gains originating from a handful of new mines ramping up. However, growth was seen for silver produced as a by-product of gold and lead/zinc mining.
