  1. First Majestic significantly increased the Indicated Resource by 245% to 30.4 million silver equivalent ounces and improved the grade by 15% to 449 AgEq g/t following a successful infill drill program designed to improve the confidence of the deposit. With an updated total resource of 67.9 million silver equivalent ounces, this project is expected to increase production and reduce costs at Santa Elena once production commences in 2021.
