Silver price to hit triple-digit figures on supply and demand - First Majestic

Tuesday, August 13, 2013

The silver price will reach triple-digit figures in the long term buoyed by supply and demand, Mexico-focused miner First Majestic Silver (TSX: FR, Amex: AG) CEO Keith Neumeyer said in a call to discuss Q2 financials.

While it seems "ridiculous" to predict US$100/oz-plus prices when the current figure is close to US$21/oz, "I honestly believe that it's going to occur," Neumeyer said, with silver set to resume its upward trend.

All commodities "will revert to a supply and demand trend," he told the call, and for silver the supply and demand outlook is "extremely good" with new uses continually being discovered.

"[Silver] is a strategic metal and it's one of the most important that we use as a human race," Neumeyer said.

Silver closed at US$21.46/oz on the London Bullion Market on Tuesday (Aug 13), up from the previous day''s US$20.835/oz, but down from the 2012 average of US$31.15/oz.
