In March, the company acquired a new silver stream on the El Mochito Mine operated by Ascendant Resources Inc. The agreement saw Maverix purchasing 22.5% of the silver produced from the mine, which Ascendant expects to produce between 850,000 and 1,200,000 ounces of contained silver in concentrate in 2019.

Maverix made an upfront payment of US$7.5 million for streaming rights, with an option to acquire an additional 17.5% for US$7.5 million at a later date.

"Maverix was pleased to add a cash flowing silver stream on Ascendant's producing El Mochito mine to our growing portfolio this quarter, as well as increase our revenue by 10% compared to the first quarter of 2018," commented Dan O'Flaherty, president and CEO of Maverix.

"Our results this quarter were consistent with our expectations and we remain on track to meet our previously announced guidance for 2019. Maverix will continue to focus on actively evaluating potential opportunities to expand our portfolio of high-quality royalties and streams."

Production guidance achievable

The Vancouver-based company said in a statement that it remains well-positioned to achieve its current production guidance of 22,500 and 24,500 ounces of gold for 2019.

“As a number of our paying assets are continuing to ramp up operations throughout the year, we expect our attributable gold equivalent production to be weighted towards the second half of 2019,” it said in a statement.

The streaming company is preparing for a US listing to expand its shareholder base.

Shares of Maverix were most recently trading at C$2.69 in Toronto and US$1.99 on OTC markets.
