Silvercorp Metals (T & NYSE: SVM) received a positive Preliminary Assessment report on its 100% owned Silvertip project in B.C., Canada. Two scenarios were presented: a seasonally operated mine (six months/year, non-winter) that processes 500 tonnes per day, vs. a 200-tonnes-per-day mine that operates year-round. According to the PA, the seasonal mine and mill offer greater economic benefit in terms of capital return and cash flow than the year-round operation. Mine life would be longer, too, and they’d avoid the extreme cold weather and heavy snow.
