McEwen Mining CEO Rob McEwen tells TheStreet's Joe Deaux the company is holding back production for its second Mexico mine that just received permitting. McEwen says the gold mining company wants to wait on production there until there is a higher silver price. McEwen says the 12% increase in gold and silver reserves in its San Jose mine in Argentina is a result on more spending on exploration. Speaking about junior miners, McEwen says they have a long way to go to reach old highs.
