The Mexican-based mining company has reported that all of its explosive permits for mine Minera Penmont had been suspended following a court decision on a land boundaries issue.

The company is confident that two further temporary suspensions at its Herradura and Soledad mines, which were affected by the same court decision, will be lifted following magisterial clarification sought by the Mexican Ministry of Defence.

Operations at Fresnillo's Noche Buena mine have restarted.
