Did you ever wish someone would compile the important stats for silver miners in one easy-to-read chart? And (of course) that the “someone” was someone other than yourself (because it’s not much fun doing all the digging). Well, today is your lucky day. Adam Hamilton, writing for MiningFeeds.com, has done just that. And as icing on the cake, he’s included some nice explanatory text as well. If you’ve been around the silver sector for a while, then you’ll be able to use the value in this information quickly. If you’re a newbie to silver but accustomed to gold, the basics and the terms are all the same, and the info is used in the same way.
The first thing your Gold Enthusiast does is look at AISC (All-In Sustaining Cost); the lower the better. Ideally, you want to see AISC as far below the current market price of the raw material as possible.
