From Silver Hall of Fame

Pan American Huaron mine

The mine was acquired by Pan American in 2001. Silver, zinc, lead, and copper mineralization is present as epithermal veins, mantos, and limestone replacements. Mining is undertaken using a combination of mechanized sub-level long hole stoping, and mechanical and conventional cut and fill.

Huaron operates an 870,000 tonne per year nominal capacity mill using froth induced flotation technology to produce silver in copper, lead, and zinc concentrates.
