Tahoe Resources Inc. is a mineral exploration, development and mine operating company. The Company's principal business activity is to operate the Escobal mine, a mining operation in southeastern Guatemala. The Escobal deposit is an intermediate-sulfidation fault-related vein formed within Tertiary sedimentary and volcanic rocks within the Caribbean plate. The Escobal vein system hosts silver, gold, lead and zinc, with an associated epithermal suite of elements, within quartz and quartz-carbonate veins. It is also engaged in the acquisition, exploration, development and operation of mineral properties in the Americas for the mining of precious metals. The Company produces metal-bearing concentrates. Silver, gold, lead and zinc are recovered by differential flotation, producing silver-rich lead concentrates and zinc concentrates, which are sold to third-party smelters under concentrate sales arrangements.
