Avino Silver & Gold Mines is an experienced, Vancouver based mining and exploration firm with properties in Mexico and Canada.

The company's primary goal is to reactivate the Avino silver-gold-copper-zinc-lead mine in Mexico, which Avino operated for 27 years beginning in 1974. Low metal prices and the closure of a key smelter forced the operation to close in 2001.

Current metal markets and high-grade discoveries on the property's San Gonzalo vein have greatly improved the economics and feasibility for potential production.

Since 2007, Avino has invested in extensive rehabilitation and modernization of the mill. A 10,000-tonne bulk sample in 2010 is expected to move the project closer to a production decision.

Our key objectives for 2010:
  1. Execute the San Gonzalo bulk sample program.
  2. Continue developing the San Gonzalo resource
  3. Resume production as quickly as possible
  4. Expand resources, reserves and the mines output
  5. Identify and explore new targets on the property
Avino also holds precious metals properties in British Columbia and the Yukon Territory.

Established in 1968, Avino was one of the first foreign-owned junior mining companies to enter Mexico following the revolution of the 1920's. The Avino mine, abandoned at the start of the revolution, was selected as the company's highest priority target.

  • Operated the Avino mine under partnership for 27 years.
  • Produced 16 Moz of silver, 150,000 oz of gold and 24Mlb of copper.
  • Acquired full control of the mine.
  • Identified and continued to explore high potential areas of the property.
  • Completed an NI 43-101 compliant resource estimate for the property's new San Gonzalo resource.
  • Re-habilitated and upgraded the plant and facilities to prepare for ongoing mining operations
  • Explored and developed properties in BC and the Yukon Territories.

Our team consists of successful mine-builders, geologists and financiers. Collectively we have over 150 years of industry experience.. We have built long-standing, valuable relationships in Mexico, and these connections will greatly assist our continuing development in a land of exetptional mining opportunity
