Fresnillo explosives ban to end in Oct

FTSE 100 miner Fresnillo yesterday said it expects a temporary ban on using explosives at some of its mines in Mexico to be lifted next month. Fresnillo had reduced its full-year gold output guidance to 465,000 ounces following the ban and reiterates its guidance despite more mines being affected than expected. The company expects to make up any production shortfall by the end of December.
