On Tuesday, January 25, 2022, silver mining company Gatos Silver divulged that it had identified errors in a previously issued technical report titled “Los Gatos Project, Chihuahua, Mexico,” and that it found “indications that there is an overestimation in the existing resource model.” The company said that it “now estimates a potential reduction of the metal content of CLG’s mineral reserve ranging from 30% to 50% of the metal content remaining after depletion.” Gatos Silver also warned that the “mineral resource and reserve estimates in the 2020 Technical Report should not be relied upon.”
Gatos Silver’s press release states that the company is currently working with independent engineering consultants to “better understand the magnitude of the overestimation, including conducting a detailed reconciliation of production to previous models and reserve calculation estimates,” but anticipates that this reconciliation work will not be completed until the second half of 2022.
Following the news of the error-plagued Technical Report, Gatos Silver’s stock plunged as much as 70% on Wednesday, January 26, 2022, causing significant harm to investors.
