Peruvian silver mine production is expected to decline for the third consecutive year in 2020, to 114.2 million ounces (Moz), against 136.2Moz, a year ago. COVID-19-related labor shortages at Uchucchacua mine, coupled with temporary suspensions at the Arcata, Huaron and Morococha mines, were the primary factors attributable for the lower production in 2020. Moving ahead, the country's Ministry of Energy and Mines plans to raise its mining gross domestic product (GDP) and investments to 14.4% and US$5.4 billion respectively in 2021, to revive its economy from the COVID-19 pandemic. Over the forecast period (2021-2024), Peruvian silver mine production is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 2.5%, to reach 140.2Moz.
