"Fortuna Silver Mines Inc. annual production is set to grow to 7+Moz Ag in 2014. . .this figure does not reflect the Trinidad North discovery at San Jose, which we believe has the potential to boost its annual production to 9+Moz by 2016. . .this gives the company an improving growth profile with significant upside. . .we believe Trinidad North has been overlooked in the current market environment. . .therefore, we adding are the company to our Canadian Focus List. . .our recommendation remains at a Speculative Buy."
Itinerant, Seeking Alpha
"Fortuna Silver Mines Ltd. has been growing production for six years in a row and guidance is for another 10% growth in 2013 to 4.4 Moz silver and 23,300 oz gold. . .the company is prepared to use the strong balance sheet to their advantage should an opportunity for a development project present itself. . .at the moment, Fortuna is one of the safer bets in the silver space."
"Fortuna Silver Mines Inc. reported continued exploration drilling success at the Trinidad North discovery at the company's San Jose mine in Mexico. . .drilling continues to intercept high-grade silver-gold mineralization over wide widths with the mineralization remaining open to the north and to depth. Amongst the most recent results was a highlight intersection of 736 g/t Ag and 4.8 g/t Au over 19.3m."
Andrew Kaip, BMO Capital Markets
"Fortuna Silver Mines Inc. released assays from drilling at its San Jose mine in Mexico. . .results from the released drill holes returned a weighted average grade of 547 g/t silver and 3.3 g/t gold over an average true width of 3.7m, which is appreciatively above the San Jose reserve grades of 190 g/t silver and 1.58 g/t gold. . .exploration results from the current drilling program, along strike of the Trinidad vein, have returned encouraging grades and are within reach of current underground mine development."
Benjamin Asuncion, Haywood Securities
