Pan American Silver Corp. reported mixed Q222 results that were heavily affected by one-off items stemming from the grade and production underperformance at Dolores. As a result, the company incurred US$155m in non-cash impairments and inventory revaluation charges. FY22 production is now guided towards the lower end of the original expectations and the gold segment cash costs at the top end. On a positive note, the annual mineral resources update revealed good resource replacement rates in the silver segment, and the company announced that Escobal is moving into the next stage of the ILO 169 consultation process. Edison Group has revised down its estimates, lowering its valuation to US$27.5/share with a current price of US$16.8. Pan American Silver is one of the largest global primary silver producers and a sizeable gold miner with operations in North, Central and South America since 1994. The company owns eight producing operations, the currently suspended toptier Escobal silver mine and a number of largescale advanced exploration projects.
