MEXICO CITY Oct 9 Fresnillo, the
world's largest primary silver producer, has had its explosives
permit reinstated at its Noche Buena mine in northern Mexico,
the company said in a regulatory filing on Wednesday.
Fresnillo said the permit had been suspended after a land
dispute with a local agrarian community. The Noche Buena mine,
which produced 36,690 ounces of gold in 2012 and is run by the
company's Minera Penmont subsidiary, is now operational,
However, Fresnillo said it is still awaiting approval from a
magistrate in the northern state of Sonora to reinstate
explosive permits at its Herradura and Soledad mines.
"Fresnillo Plc is currently evaluating the impact on the
2013 gold production guidance and will be in a position to
update the market following the lifting of the suspension of the
explosives permit at Herradura and Soledad," the company said.
