Since 1969, our subsidiary SMI, listed on the Casablanca Stock Exchange, has been producing silver metal at the Imiter mine, located east of Ouarzazate in Morocco.

We are one of the leading producers of primary silver in Africa and the world. As this mineral is usually a by-product, at Imiter, silver is the main product of the deposit which makes it unique in the world.

We produce high purity silver metal (98.5% Ag) in the form of anodes.
