Finally, we have a positive surprise with Avino Silver - Sprott Asset Management takes position in the company. To pass Sprott's DD means a lot in the Silver market. Erick Sprott is personally very bullish on silver and silver junior miners, you can find his interview with Jim Puplava on his website. Looks like Avino Silver finally has found its footing in this market and gets vote of confidence from Silver market insiders.
Presenatation: An Emerging Silver Producer
"The best store of value is Gold and Silver - the best safe is the mother earth: question is how much do they have exactly and whether management finally has waken up with these silver prices. We have history on our side here: replacement value of the recently modified Mill is more than the market cap of all this junior Silver mining company."
