SilverCrest Metals – 2024 Production, Cost and Exploration Guidance

February 29, 2024

Chris Ritchie, President of SilverCrest Metals (“SilverCrest” or the “Company”) (TSX:SIL – NYSE:SILV) joins me to discuss the Company’s 2024 guidance on silver and gold production, costs and exploration. See the table below, from the February 20th news release, that details the guidance ranges for this year at the Company’s Las Chispas Project in Mexico.


I ask Chris how the costs, on the all-in sustaining cost (AISC) front, compare to the numbers outlined in the Company’s Technical Report, released last year. I also have Chris compare the costs across the silver producers. We discuss how the Company is working to control costs throughout this year and into next year. On the growth front I ask about the ongoing underground development and exploration budget of between $12-14million for the year.


We all know costs have continued to rise throughout the entire mining sector. Chris outlines how SilverCrest is focused on the balance sheet, continuing to hold bullion and separating itself from the other higher cost silver producers.
