* Sees significant increase in H2 production
July 12 (Reuters) - Canada’s Great Panther Silver Ltd GPR.TO reported higher second quarter production and said new equipment delivered in the first half of the year would lead to a significant increase in output in the latter half of the year.
The Vancouver, British Columbia-based company said combined silver production -- at its Mexican silver mining operations in Topia and Guanajuato -- in the current second quarter totaled 410,583 ounces.
It had produced 333,358 ounces of silver in the prior quarter.
