Tuesday, Dec 19, 2017
GREAT PANTHER SILVER LIMITED (TSX: GPR; NYSE American: GPL) ("Great Panther", the "Company") announces that SEMARNAT, the Mexican environmental authority, has granted the Company all permits for the construction and operation of the new Phase II Tailings Storage Facility ("TSF") at its Topia Mine in Durango, Mexico.

"We are pleased with the conclusion of the permitting process without interruption of operations at Topia", stated James Bannantine, President & CEO.  "We will be commencing imminently the construction of Phase II and have sufficient remaining capacity at Phase I to continue mining operations allowing a seamless transition to deposition at Phase II."

The permits granted by SEMARNAT for the construction and operation of the Phase II TSF and the modifications to the processing plant earlier in the year will allow dry stack tailings disposal under the Company's current operating plan for the Topia Mine.


Great Panther Silver Limited is a primary silver mining and exploration company listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange trading under the symbol GPR, and on the NYSE American under the symbol GPL.  Great Panther's current activities are focused on the mining of precious metals from its two wholly-owned operating mines in Mexico: the Guanajuato Mine Complex and the Topia Mine in Durango.  The Company is also evaluating the restart of the Coricancha Mine in Peru, which it acquired earlier this year; and continues to pursue the acquisition of additional mining operations or projects in the Americas.
