Avino Silver & Gold Mines Ltd. (TSXV:ASM,NYSEMKT:ASM) yesterday announced February 2014 production results from its Mexico-based San Gonzalo mine and Avino mine surface stockpile operations, commenting that together they put out 96,254 silver equivalent ounces.

Highlights include:

  • Silver Equivalent ounces produced in February were lower by 7% than that of January due mainly to two fewer operating days.
  • Feed grades of silver and gold together with their respective recoveries were similar to those of January with little or no change.
  • Total tonnage processed was lower by 4%, however daily throughput was higher due to higher plant availability.
  • The quality of concentrate produced was also better resulting in fewer tons produced.

David Wolfin, Avino’s president, CEO and director, commented:

We are pleased to report another month of consistent operations in February. Output was down marginally due to two fewer days in the month, however, Avino’s daily average silver equivalent production was able to equal the output achieved in January, which was a record setting month. The San Gonzalo mine continues to demonstrate consistent grades and recoveries.
