Earlier this month, one of those Fools, slugger17, nicely summed up the bull case for our community:

I think precious metals will be the only safe haven as economies continue to struggle. It currently seems that the demand for silver will only go up from here. There will be some ups and downs but the overall picture seems to point to higher and higher prices over the next decade. Up until now [Great Panther] has been a well run company with little debt and good cash on hand. If they continue this trend, I think they can profit handsomely from the rise in the silver market and so will investors.

Of course, despite its four-star rating, Great Panther may not be your top choice.
