Levon is focused on silver because management believes silver prices will soon return to a long-term, unprecedented bull market. Here’s why:
- 1Increasing demand in both the industrial and investment sectors
- 2A high silver/gold ratio-currently exceeding 80:1
- 3A growing stream of new uses for silver
- 4Financial uncertainty worldwide
You can read a more detailed analysis of our position in the Silver section of the website. We have chosen to focus on Mexico because we believe it’s the best place in the world for mineral exploration and mining. Financial stability, a booming economy, efficient and modern infrastructure and highly skilled mining labor represent just a few of the reasons we operate in Mexico. Our team consists of successful mine-builders, geologists and financiers. Collectively we have over 150 years’ experience in the industry with particular knowledge of operating in Mexico.

Mexico presents one of the best places in the world for mineral exploration and mining. Here’s why:
- Political and financial stability
- 100% foreign ownership of assets allowed
- Easy and economical access from anywhere in North America
- Modern and growing infrastructure for communications and transportation
- An emerging economic powerhouse
- Educated and skilled labor force
- Detailed, current and accessible government geological database
Mexico’s GDP growth hit 1.1% in 2013, after 3.9% in 2012 and 5.5% in 2011. The strong economy has kept Mexicans at home or returning to home. A recent article in Wall Street Journal noted that the net rate of migration of Mexican workers to the United States has recently fallen to zero. The biggest driver of this growth has been exports, mostly to the U.S. Also, construction in Mexico has expanded dramatically, pointing to longer-term prosperity.
