Tahoe Resources provides Escobal update
Tahoe Resources reported that a group of protestors near the town of Casillas in Guatemala has been blocking the primary road that connects Guatemala City to the Escobal Mine near Minera San Rafael. Protests appear to relate to a variety of issues, including some unfounded claims that mining at Escobal is causing seismic activity more than 20 kilometers away in Casillas. The company is working with the government, community leaders and others to resolve the situation peacefully and expeditiously. We expect lawful and peaceful engagement in the coming week will result in the resolution of this conflict and open transportation routes. While the company's shipments and supplies have been delayed, the company does not expect any adjustments to its annual production or cost guidance as a result, and anticipates production and financial performance to be in line with mid-year expectations at the end of Q2.
