Aurcana Silver (TSXV: AUN; FRA: UHY0) has started production at its Virginius mine in Ouray, Colorado. The company aims to reach full capacity of 244 tonnes (270 US short tons) as early as the end of September, already generating positive cash flow. By the end of the year, this could equate to a calculated production of between one and one and a half million ounces of silver. Aurcana then plans to produce 4.5 million ounces of silver in 2022 and 6 million ounces in 2023. At that time, Aurcana then also plans to bring its second asset, the Shafter Mine in Texas, into production and, with 9 to million ounces of annual production, finally rise to the rank of a mid-tier silver producer.
