Mexico Goldmine Blockade Lifted


Newmont Goldcorp confirmed on Wednesday the lifting of an almost four-week illegal blockade affecting its Peñasquito gold-silver mine in Mexico, which will cost the operation thousands of tonnes in terms of lost output. The world’s No. 1 gold miner said operations remained temporarily halted at the northern Zacatecas mine, but noted it was working closely with the federal and state governments toward a sustainable, long-term solution.
