Strike halts Bolivia silver mine, exports - union

LA PAZ, March 30 (Reuters) - A week-old strike at Bolivia’s San Cristobal mine has totally paralyzed production and exports of silver, zinc and lead, a union leader said on Wednesday.

    San Cristobal is the world’s third-largest producer of silver and the sixth-largest producer of zinc, according to Japan’s Sumitomo Corp (8053.T), which owns the mine. (Reporting by Carlos Quiroga; Writing by Eduardo Garcia)
