Americas Gold and Silver Corporation, a growing North American precious metals producer, is pleased to announce that the Relief Canyon mine, located in Nevada, United States, has declared commercial production effective January 11, 2020.


First gold poured February 2020.

Since the return of the Company’s large radial stacker in December, the operation has consistently met the required stacking rates, which was the final item required to declare commercial production.

Full ramp-up from the operation targeted by mid-May 2021.

“I am pleased to announce that Relief Canyon has achieved commercial production following a challenging 2020,” stated Americas Gold and Silver President & CEO Darren Blasutti. “The Relief Canyon team worked hard to overcome the common teething pains in commissioning a new operation, the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the failure of our large radial stacker. I look forward to a successful 2021.”
