Great Panther trades on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the symbol GPR and on the NYSE American under the symbol GPL.
The Company's Tucano Gold Mine is located in Amapá State in northern Brazil, approximately 200 kilometres from Macapá, the state capital. Comprised of a series of open pits located over a 7-kilometre strike length, the operation is an established gold mine found within the Vila Nova Greenstone Belt, the southern-most extension of the Guiana Shield, which is host to numerous significant gold deposits in Suriname, Guyana and French Guiana. The gold is hosted in a shear zone, within a banded iron formation, and is recovered in a 10,000 tonne per day conventional grinding and leaching plant.
Tucano lies within a tenement package that covers nearly 200,000 hectares, which has been largely unexplored. The key to unlocking the potential of this district is through exploration. Great Panther is executing a three-pronged exploration strategy to unlock the value of the district, focused on resource replacement, near-mine resource expansion and longer-term organic growth through regional exploration.
Coricancha is a gold-silver-copper-lead-zinc underground mine located in the central Andes of Peru, approximately 90 kilometres east of Lima, in a historic mining district where mining has occurred since the 1800s. On care and maintenance since August 2013, Coricancha has a permitted and operational 600 tonnes per day processing facility along with supporting mining infrastructure.
Sustainability is an essential part of Great Panther’s mission: to safely, sustainably and profitably produce gold and silver, for the benefit of our investors, employees and communities. Our sustainability strategy focuses on three key areas: health and safety, environmental responsibility, and community engagement and development. Through continuous assessment and ongoing training, we work together with our communities to solve sustainability challenges and reach positive, shared outcomes.
