Earlier this year we reported that the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) estimated global silver production and Mexican silver mining production grew in 2015.

We also noted that the Silver Institute projected that global silver mining production grew in 2015.
Earlier this week, we reported that investment bank Société Générale projected silver mining production would fall for the “1st time in over decade“.

According to the Mexican Geological Service’s “Value and Volume Production of Silver” report issued by the Mexican Government, silver mining production in 2015 grew 3.25 percent in 2015 vs. 2014.
The Mexican Government’s numbers square with the primary Mexican Silver Miners’ reports that shows year over year and/or record silver mining prodution in 2015.
