Avino Silver & Gold Mines Ltd. (ASM: TSX/NYSE American, GV6: FSE, “Avino” or “the Company”) is pleased to announce its second quarter, 2018 production results from its Avino property near Durango, Mexico.
Silver equivalent production in Q2, 2018 increased by 6% compared to Q2, 2017 due to extra production from the commissioning of Mill Circuit 4. Copper production in Q2, 2018 increased by 31% compared to Q2, 2017, and silver and gold production decreased by 16% and 11%, respectively; the latter are due to lower silver and gold feed grades from the Avino and San Gonzalo mines.
