Hochschild, which floated on the London Stock Exchange in 2006, operates mines in South and North America. The focus is gold and silver.
Last week, Hochschild received an encouraging scoping study and an upgrade of reserves for the Inmaculada gold-silver project in southern Peru. Inmaculada is owned 30% by Hochschild and 70% by IMZ.
Measured and Indicated mineral resources are now estimated at 3.8mt at an average grade of 4.3 g/t gold and 129 g/t silver respectively, suggesting the mine contains approximately 532,000 ounces of gold and 15.8m ounces of silver or 796,000 ounces of gold equivalent.
This new M&I resource estimate represents a 245% increase in gold ounces and 225% increase in silver ounces compared to the previous resource estimate.
