Cerro Moro Argentina

Cerro Moro is a gold-silver development project located in Santa Cruz province of Argentina.  The property contains a number of high-grade epithermal gold and silver veins, which are expected to be mined by a combination of open pit and underground mining.  The formal decision to proceed with construction was made in early 2015 and initial production is expected to begin in the second quarter of 2018.  Cerro Moro is expected to produce 85,000 ounces of gold and 3.75 million ounces of silver in 2018.  The medium-term target is production of 130,000 ounces of gold and 7.0 million ounces of silver per year.

In 2017, the project progressed according to plan and in early 2018 the focus moved from construction to commissioning and operational readiness.  Cerro Moro is expected to ramp-up production at the 1,000 tonne per day processing plant in the second quarter of 2018.

The Cerro Moro project offers significant opportunities for the conversion of mineral resources* into mineral reserves and for further discoveries on the property.  Yamana is targeting the addition of 1.0 million gold equivalent mineral resources to the mineral inventory over the coming years.
