Silver: 200% Supply Deficit, Soaring Demand & Shrinking Production

Benoit La Salle, President & CEO of Aya Gold & Silver Inc. (TSX: AYA | OTCQX: AYASF), recently shared insights with Small Cap Steve at the Rule Symposium in Boca Raton, Florida. Drawing from over 25 years of experience in developing and operating mining projects in West Africa, La Salle offered valuable perspectives on the silver market and Aya’s operations.

La Salle emphasized the increasing demand for silver, driven by its use in solar panels, armaments, and communication technologies. He provided an optimistic outlook on silver prices, saying: “Four years ago, silver was $14. It came up 40% so far this year — I mean in the last 12 months — we’re seeing $30-$31. I believe we’re going to be seeing $50 in the next 24 months.”

Aya Gold & Silver holds a unique position as the sole significant silver producer in Morocco. La Salle highlighted the country’s mining-friendly environment and the company’s high-grade, pure silver deposit as key advantages.

As for the company’s growth trajectory, production is expected to surge from 2 million ounces in 2023 to 7-7.5 million ounces by 2025, all while maintaining remarkably low production costs. 

La Salle also shared his philosophy for successful mining ventures, emphasizing three critical factors: world-class deposits, strong management teams, and creating value through resource expansion. This approach underscores Aya’s strategy for sustainable growth in the competitive mining sector.
