First Majestic Silver: Target not ambitious - it's realistic!
"We are expecting 10 million ounces production in 2012. That is with the increase from La Parrilla, a little bit of increase from La Encantada and Del Toro will be contributing some ounces by the end of the year", says First Majestic Silver-CEO Keith Neumeyer. Although an analysts calls Neumeyer's goal ambitions, the manager trusts in the growth of his company.
First Majestic Silver is doing great. The company has been growing for thirteen consecutive quarters. "We will produce eight million ounces this year and ten million in 2014", CEO Keith Neumeyer says at the International Precious Metals & Commodities Show in Munich. Especially in times of crisis people see precious metals as a form of a safe haven.
