--Fresnillo shares fell after the company cut its guidance for silver and gold output this year

--Second-quarter silver and gold production fell 6% and 5.4% respectively on year

--The company guided toward a negative impact of around $135 million on its adjusted production costs

Shares in precious metals miner Fresnillo PLC (FRES.LN) fell Wednesday after it cut its full-year production in silver and gold due to lower-than-expected grades at its namesake mine and construction delays at one of its plants.

Fresnillo, the world's largest silver miner, said it now expects to produce between 55 million ounces and 58 million ounces of silver in 2019, down from an earlier range of 58 million ounces to 61 million ounces.

The company also shaved its full-year gold production guidance to a range of 880,000 thousand ounces to 910,000 thousand ounces, down from a previous 910,000 thousand ounces to 930,000 thousand ounces. It attributed the decrease to delays in the construction of a leaching pad.

Shares at 0939 GMT were down 1.4% at 908.40 pence.

During the second quarter, Fresnillo's silver production, including its silverstream contract, fell 6% to 14.4 million ounces, from 15.3 million ounces in the year-ealier period. Gold production fell 5.4% to 221,307 ounces, the company said.

Fresnillo also said it expected a negative cost impact for the first half of the year of around $135 million. The company said its first-half adjusted production costs would be hit by previously disclosed accounting reclassifications and growth initiatives, among other factors.

Despite the cut to guidance and production falling on year, analysts weren't too perturbed by Fresnillo's output. Analysts at Morgan Stanley said silver production came in 1% ahead of its own estimates, while Citi analysts said the result was 4% higher than they had estimated.

Chief Executive Octavio Alvidrez said Fresnillo's production has continued to recover toward targeted levels since the first quarter, which he attributed to "the positive impact of operational measures and investments we have made into infrastructure, equipment and infill drilling."

Compared with production in the first three months of the year, second-quarter production of silver and gold rose 9.7% and 4.8%, from 13.1 million ounces and 211,110 ounces respectively.
