Pan American Silver reduces certain activities at the Dolores mine
Wednesday, May 30, 2018
Pan American Silver Corp. has initiated steps to reduce certain activities at its Dolores mine in Mexico following recent security incidents along the access roads being used to transport personnel and materials to and from the Dolores mine. The Company is working with state and federal authorities to provide safe access to the mine. The mine site remains secure. Ore stacking to the leach pads and the processing plant are currently operating at normal rates.

"Our priority is the safety and security of our personnel. We have been monitoring the situation, and with the recent incidents that have occurred along the access roads, we have determined the prudent course of action is to suspend personnel movements to and from the mine until the roads are safe for our employees," said Michael Steinmann, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company.

The Company will maintain personnel at the mine at levels necessary for site security and reduced operating activities.
