Gatos Silver (GATO)

Gatos Silver is a silver dominant exploration, development and production company that discovered a new silver and zinc-rich mineral district in southern Chihuahua State, Mexico. To-date, 14 zones of mineralization have been defined within the district and all are characterized by silver-zinc-lead epithermal mineralization. More than 85% of the approximately 103,087-hectare mineral rights package has yet to be drilled, representing a highly prospective and underexplored district. The Company recently built and commissioned its first operating mine and mineral processing plant at the Cerro Los Gatos deposit, which is expected to produce 12.2 million silver equivalent ounces annually.

Financial report summary

  • If securities or industry analysts do not continue to publish research or reports about our business, or if they issue an adverse or misleading opinion regarding our stock, our stock price and trading volume could decline.
Management Discussion
  • For the three months ended September 30, 2021, we experienced a net loss from continuing operations of $14,999 thousand compared to net income of $433 thousand for the three months ended September 30, 2020. The $15,432 thousand decrease in net income from continuing operations was primarily attributable to the $10,000 thousand Term Loan closing fee paid to Dowa, the $1,847 thousand decrease in equity income in affiliates from the LGJV operations, and the $4,029 thousand increase in general and administrative expense due to: 1) higher legal, consulting and directors and officer’s insurance costs related to public company governance and reporting requirements, 2) increased stock-based compensation expense, and 3) costs relating to a separation agreement entered into with a departing executive officer during the current year quarter.
