Great Panther restarts operations at Topia

Published by , Editor
Global Mining Review,

Great Panther Mining Ltd has re-started operations at Topia, Mexico, following a voluntary suspension in November to prioritise the health of its workforce and local community and limit the spread of COVID-19.

All employees and contractors have attended safety induction and enhanced COVID-19 protocol training. Mining resumed on 17 December 2020 and the plant is expected to begin processing ore on 21 December 2020.

Testing and tracing of COVID-19 are part of the comprehensive protocols Great Panther has implemented across all of its operations in response to the pandemic. The company will continue working closely with local government and regional health authorities to ensure continued safe operations.

The suspension of operations lasted approximately 30 days and is not expected to impact Great Panther's ability to achieve consolidated 2020 production guidance. For the 3 months ended 30 September 2020, Topia produced an average of approximately 1400 gold equivalent oz per month and accounted for approximately 9% of the company's revenues.
