Avino Silver & Gold Mines Ltd. very kindly dropped us an invite for their 50th birthday celebrations at the Vancouver Convention Centre this week. Upstairs from the bustling VRIC18 and AME Round-up (More on those later!) a well set room and a healthy splash of tequila met us at the door, cheering, smiles, a few tears and a lot of laughter followed for many. From the traditional first nations dancing to the Mexican themed live band it was a great evening out.
Avino are celebrating 50 years as an operating mining company in Mexico, along with their more recent progress at Bralorne (BC) and, the clapping of hands and congratulations were well deserved.
Take a look at some of the photos we snapped, let us know if you want a higher quality copy.
Thanks Avino, see you in another 50?
Tonight we’re heading over the road with Mining Finland to research our upcoming ‘Exploration Focus’ piece in Scandinavia. Say hello and smile for the camera everybody!
