VANCOUVER — Tahoe Resources (TSX: THO; NYSE: TAHO) has expanded resources and tabled an updated feasibility study at its high grade Escobal silver mine in southeast Guatemala, setting the stage for expanded silver production starting next year.

The underground mine reached commercial production at the start of this year and has yielded 15.1 million oz of silver in concentrate in the first nine months of 2014.

The new feasibility study looks at ramping up operations from the current 3,500 t/d to 4,500 tonnes. Tahoe hopes to hit this production level by the end of next year.
