The guild said gold shipments account for 29% of overall mineral exports (US$2.37 billion) and 17% of the total sales registered last January.

Likewise, the top export destinations were Switzerland, Canada, the United States, India and the United Kingdom.

In the analyzed month, refined silver shipments reached US$11 million, a 43.4% increase compared to the same period in 2017(US$8 million).

Finally, SNMPE noted the future of gold and silver mining —both at national and international levels— will be addressed at the 13th International Gold & Silver Symposium
