When it comes to silver, Mexico outshines the entire world. As the largest global producer of silver, the industry has great expertise to share. In 2018, Mexico produced 3,690 tons of silver, with Zacatecas, Durango and Chihuahua as its top three producers. Although Oaxaca has climbed the ranking in terms of production, Mexico’s south still faces many challenges to uncover its silver reserves. As in previous years, Zacatecas, Durango and Chihuahua held the Top 3 spots in the ranking. Fresnillo plc was the country’s crown jewel, producing 61.8 moz in 2018.
