Another Visit With Keith Neumeyer (Podcast)
Another Visit With Keith Neumeyer Podcast – TFMetals Report
With silver prices falling and now near their lows for all of 2017, what a great time to check in once again with Keith Neumeyer, CEO and President of First Majestic Silver as well as Chairman of First Mining Finance.
As most know, Keith is a staunch advocate for our cause. Whenever he’s given a chance, he “calls a spade, a spade” and deplores the level of manipulation and price management within the silver space. As the CEO of one of the largest primary silver miners on the planet, Keith’s leadership on this subject is extraordinarily valuable and important.
To that end, this discussion begins with a review of current events, in particular the “silver flash crash” of July 6. From there, we discuss the global silver market and the impact of low prices upon the miners, especially in the context of all-in, sustaining costs. Next, we discuss conditions as First Majestic and we close with a detailed review of the portfolio of First Mining Finance and an update on some of their most promising assets.
I hope you enjoy this audio. You’ll likely find it very helpful and informative and we thank Keith for once again sharing some of his valuable time with us last week.
