Zgounder Silver Mine Poured 35,997 ounces (1119 Kg) of Silver Ingots in November

BLAINVILLE, QUÉBEC–(Marketwired – December 22, 2016) - Maya Gold & Silver Inc. (“Maya” or the “Corporation”) (TSX VENTURE:MYA) announced a production of 35,997 ounces of silver (1119 kg) during the month of November 2016 at its Zgounder silver mine in Morocco.

November 2016 Operations Highlights

  • 35,997 ounces (1119 Kg) of silver ingots were produced from 5012 tonnes of processed dry material having an average head grade of 299.7 g/t Ag;
  • A total recovery rate of 74.48% was achieved.

The silver production fell off by 8.2% over the previous month primarily due to lower concentrations of the mineralized material processed as well as a lower rate of recovery. The head grade of material processed during the month achieved 299.7 g /t Ag against 403 g/t obtained during October. The head grade decrease is principally related to accrued underground development work preparing mining sites to provide sufficient mineralized material which will be able to feed at full capacity the flotation cells a near future.

Forward looking information

Zgounder Silver Mine

The decision to commence production at the Zgounder Silver Mine was not based on a feasibility study of mineral reserves demonstrating economic and technical viability, but rather on a pre-feasibility study. Accordingly, there is increased uncertainty and economic and technical risks of failure associated with this production decision. Production and economic variables may vary considerably, due to the absence of a complete and detailed site analysis according to and in accordance with NI 43-101.
