Fortuna's Growing Fortune
In case you were wondering why I was a little quiet over the past week, particularly during a week that was not lacking noteworthy developments for the sector, it's because I was down in Oaxaca Mexico touring Fortuna Silver Mines' new San Jose silver/gold mine. I have so much to relate to you all from the experience, and will aim to publish my report(s) next week, but in the meantime I wanted to encourage you to spend some time familiarizing yourselves with the company's story.
The company has done a phenomenal job building and now operating this mine, and similar to the experience of visiting Endeavour's operations, quality is evident at every single turn.
Have fun doing your homework, and feel free to share your findings, thoughts, and conclusions here. After I publish my findings, I'll be prepared to join in the conversation, answer questions, etc.
There was so much to see, we went well into the evening, and I thought the crushing circuit looked cool all lit up at night:
My fluency in Spanish gave me some very special access, including a lengthy tutorial from a project geologist who brought me step-by-step through the current geological interpretation of the deposit and the prospects for resource conversion and exploration upside. I emerged from the experience with as holistic an understanding of a project as I think one can hope to gain with a quick visit.
Stay tuned ... much more to come. And enjoy digging into Fortuna's story and prospects in the meantime.
