American International Ventures Inc. (AIVN) is a gold and silver mining company with a focus on acquiring and producing from historical mines which have proven past gold production in the politically risk devoid, and investor friendly regions of Nevada and Baja, Mexico.
AIVN is a junior company with a defining advantage; a focus on actually producing gold and silver, opposed to most juniors who "explore" for gold, sometimes for up to 10 years. AIVN's properties are ready to mine and ready to cash-flow for investors by means of the company's large inventory of mining equipment, and their management team made up of decades of mining, geology, engineering, and investment banking experience.
AIVN's flagship mining property "The Mother Lode" in Baja, Mexico, is an enormous mining district, with a rich history starting at the turn of the 20th century when over 200,000 Oz of gold was mined in only 10 years. Only 10% of the property has been tested for gold; the areas that have, returned consistently high grade results. The Mother Lode mine is currently under construction by AIVN to start a 200 ton/day placer operation (70% complete).
In Nevada, USA AIVN controls 13 historically proven mines: of which 3 have been optioned for sale to Nevada mining company's providing AIVN with on-going cash-flow and assets in the form of the purchasers publically traded shares; 2 are high-value advanced stage projects awaiting permits from the State; and 8 of which are advanced stage projects AIVN plans to JV to partners and retain ownership or a royalty without further financial commitment.
In the future AIVN plans to institute a physical gold or silver dividend, if and when feasible, as investors increasingly demand investments which yield income, and as "money" inevitably becomes more synonymous with precious metals.
