2017 was the best year for gold since 2010 and the question is whether the white metal can emulate its yellow counterpart. The year definitely started out strong for silver, with silver prices reaching its peak of $17.37/oz in January and the price has since oscillated at a relatively high level between $16/oz and $17.5/oz

In general, mining stocks, leveraged to the underlying commodity prices, outperform direct investments in the ETF or bullion. To take advantage of the impending silver bull run, investors would do well to take a closer look at  Golden Arrow Resources Corporation (TSXV: GRG | OTCQB: GARWF) (“Golden Arrow”).

The company owns 25% of Puna Operations Inc., a joint venture with SSR Mining, consisting of the Pirquitas mill and the Chinchillas project in Argentina. Golden Arrow is also actively exploring on its more than 200,000 hectares of properties in the country.

December 2017 was a big month for Golden Arrow; its environmental impact assessment at its Puna Operations was approved and construction started at the Chinchillas project and the Pirquitas mill.

Now first delivery of Chinchillas’ ore to the Pirquitas mill is imminent, with management indicating that we could see delivery by the second half of 2018 and full-scale production by 2019.

Nikolaos Cacos, Director and VP of Corporate Development at Golden Arrow had this to say of the impending production:

“Chinchillas, at full production will be the seventh largest primary silver mine in the world with an annual average silver equivalent production of 8.4Moz, over a period of eight years.”

In essence, the Puna Joint Venture with SSR Mining is expected to be a cash generating operation by the second half of the year, generating estimated annual revenues for Golden Arrow equal to around 2 million oz of silver equivalent.
