Minera Andes is in my opinion one of the best miners in the industry, and although it's not a pure silver miner, it should be put on the same list with the other top miners like First Majestic, Greath Panther, Endeaveour, Silvermex and Silver Weathon.
The CEO Rob McEwen is like the Warren Buffet of the mining industry. In the below clips he explains his views.

At the current time MAI.TO is one of the cheapest miners there is. With a price of 2.17 today is valued at 12 times earnings, which is really cheap for a miner with such growth prospects.
Hope there are more shareholders here which can add to the discussion.
