Underground hydraulic fill tailings system successfully implemented at VMC; Tailings material is now being deposited underground in one of the numerous voids that have been created over Valenciana’s 450-year mining history. Topia processing capacity increased approximately 10% due primarily to the optimization of a new tailings filter press.

Principal central maintenance shop has been completed in Guanajuato, and is now fully operational; the Company estimates that over US$1 million has been saved through the refurbishment of discarded and neglected equipment recently acquired through the MMR transaction.

Production guidance for 2023 remains unchanged; silver equivalent production is expected to range from 4.6 to 4.8 million ounces.
