?Quarterly silver production of 15.5 moz (including Silverstream), up 6.3% vs. 3Q17 due to the contribution of the new Pyrites Plant, higher ore grades at Fresnillo, Herradura and Ciénega, and higher volumes of ore milled at San Julián phase II. 3Q18 production in line with 2Q18.

?Quarterly gold production of 225 koz, down 3.5% vs. 3Q17 as a result of higher than normal speed in the recovery rate at the leaching pads in 3Q17 and the lower grade and volume of ore deposited on the pads at Herradura in 3Q18.
?Quarterly gold production down 3.7% vs. 2Q18 mainly due to a lower speed in the recovery rate at the leaching pads at Herradura in 3Q18, and the lower ore grade and recovery rate at Noche Buena.
