Aftermath Silver


Primary ticker: TSXV:AAG, OTCQX:AAGFF
Stage of development: Exploration
Primary minerals: Silver, Gold, Copper and Manganese
Project to promote: Berenguela, Challacollo
Project location: Peru, Chile

Aftermath is one of the leading silver development stories based on the 165Moz silver between the Berenguela and Challacollo Projects. Berenguela also has a strong copper component, but the manganese could be worth as much as the silver and copper combined given the emergence of a strong battery metals manganese sulphate market.

Both projects are potentially large open pittable mines, which is exceedingly rare in the silver space and will be highly sought after due to their economics. Both projects are located near infrastructure and lend themselves to the Green Metals narrative. Berenguela has the potential to be a company maker project and Challacollo looks like it could be a minimum 10-year open pit silver mine.
