Global Mining Review,

Great Panther Mining Ltd has announced that the Mexican federal government has ordered an extension of the suspension of non-essential activities in Mexico until 30 May 2020 in response to COVID-19.

On 2 April 2020, the company announced a temporary suspension of production activities at its Mexican operations through 30 April 2020 in response to a first order by the Mexican government to suspend such activities.

The directive provides a potential re-start of operations following 18 May 2020 for operations located in municipalities exhibiting low, or no, cases of COVID-19. The company will continue to comply with the directive and will evaluate and seek the opportunity to qualify for the noted exemption.

Monthly production from Great Panther’s Mexican operations accounts for approximately 2% of annual consolidated production on a gold equivalent ounce basis.
