October 2, 2023 (Investorideas.com Newswire) Silver X Mining Corp. has announced the restart of its operations in Peru. Read on to see why analysts like this company's stock.
Silver X Mining Corp. (AGX:TSX.V) has announced in a press release that the company has restarted its mining operations on the Nueva Recuperada Project, located in central Peru. Prior to the restart, the company reported that it had upgraded its infrastructure and operations protocols at the site.
According to the company, Silver X has created a new plan to target areas on the property that have been determined to have a higher likelihood of mineralizing, including the Tangana 1 and Tangana 2 veins, the Morlupo vein, and the Cauca vein.
The company reports that it is using its stores of materials for efficiency and that the company has reduced costs by reducing staff, the use of the sub-level stopping method (SLS), and additional changes related to the upgraded infrastructure and protocol.
Silver X is also working to establish a partnership with a particular contractor to better the company's work environment.
According to Jose Garcia, the CEO of Silver X, "Today marks a significant milestone in Silver X's journey. The restart of Nueva Recuperada confirms our commitment to make Nueva Recuperada a profitable operation based on improved safety standards, efficiency, head grades, and costs."
Silver Strong as Dollar Weakens
According to Stockhead, silver was a topic of discussion at the Sydney Opera House Investor Lunch, where environmentally friendly energy was a focus of the proceedings. Silver is an important component of solar panels, which are a major form of green energy production.
Rick Mills of Ahead of the Herd noted that silver, as a commodity, tends to be stronger as the dollar gets weaker.
According to Mills, "When the dollar drops, it takes less of another currency to buy dollars needed to purchase the commodity, so the demand for that commodity will increase, leading to a price increase."
Potential Return of 270%
Red Cloud Securities released a report on Silver X earlier this month that named a target price of CA$0.85, representing a potential 270% return for investors.
According to the report, the company has a number of positive factors working in its favor, including the renewed operations at Nueva Recuperada and a new COO, Freddy Mayor Zavellos, who was a founding member.
Technical Analyst Clive Maund also reported on the company in June and rated it as a "Strong Speculative Buy" for potential investors.
According to Maund, "bullish factors to observe are how volume has declined to a relatively low level which shows the lack of interest characteristic of a bottom, the Accumulation line holding up well overall relative to price, the price well below a still rising 200-day moving average, which is a measure of how oversold it is, and how the MACD has been creeping higher all this month as downside momentum drops out."
Silver X reports that it has a number of catalysts on the horizon, including drilling on the Plata mining project, an Environmental and Social Impact Statement (ESIA), and a possible increase in plant productivity from 2,220tdp to 2,500tdp.
