VANCOUVER, April 5, 2017 /PRNewswire/ – GREAT PANTHER SILVER LIMITED (TSX: GPR; NYSE MKT: GPL) (“Great Panther”; the “Company”) announces that Robert Archer, President and CEO, has advised that he will be stepping down during 2017 and will work with the board of directors (the “Board”) to find his successor.  Accordingly, the Board has retained a globally recognized recruitment firm to conduct an executive search for a new President & CEO who will maximize the Company’s growth opportunities over the next five to seven years.  Mr. Archer will remain in his current executive role until a suitable successor has been appointed, and thereafter as an ongoing member of the Board.
