Invertirán 854 MDD En Proyectos Para Extraer Plata

Ciudad de México – Pese al descenso en la exploración para el desarrollo de minas de plata provocado por los bajos precios del metal, la inversión prevista para este y el próximo año en nuevos proyectos es superior a 854 millones de dólares, anticipó la Cámara Minera de México (Camimex).

En 2015 la fortaleza del dólar fue la principal influencia en el precio de la plata, con un precio promedio de 15.7 dólares la onza; sin embargo, el alza en las tasas de interés anunciada por la Reserva Federal de Estados Unidos provocó que de un nivel máximo en enero de 18.2 dólares por onza, en diciembre se ubicara en un mínimo de 13.7 dólares.

Por sexto año consecutivo México se colocó en 2015 como el principal productor de plata en el mundo, seguido de China y Perú, con una extracción de 191.5 millones de onzas, 3.3 por ciento más que en 2014.
