PAAS is a sad example of a miner focused primarily on silver. It had near record sales last year, but almost no profits.
The relentless manipulation in silver prices prevents silver miners from making descent profits, and forces them to produce with little reward. As a result, PAAS stock price is very low even though silver and gold have rallied some.
If the banksters continue the price manipulation, I expect that some silver miners will go bankrupt because they cannot profit. That will eventually reduce the silver supply, and hopefully break the manipulation so prices can rise to their true value.
