Great Panther Mining says Tucano mine continues at full capacity as two employees test positive for coronavirus

Proactive Investors Thursday, 7 May 2020
Great Panther Mining Ltd (TSE:GPR) (NYSEAMERICAN:GPL) said operations at its Tucano mine in Brazil have not been affected by news two of its employees there have tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19). Both workers are stable, have mild symptoms, and remain in isolation monitored daily by the local health authority, the precious metals producer said, as it updated on activity at its mines, which span Brazil, Mexico and Peru. READ: Great Panther provides an update on Mexican operations as government extends coronavirus lockdown Tucano continues to operate at full capacity with strict COVID-19 mitigation protocols, which the company implemented in mid-March, the company added. Meanwhile, at its other Mexican operations and the Coricancha mine in Peru, it said there are no suspected or confirmed cases of the disease, and both sites continue to comply with the temporary government restrictions. Great Panther is planning to resume a safe ramp-up of operations at Topia in Mexico on May 18 this year, while the Guanajuato mine complex in the country is expected to restart operations on May 30. At Coricancha, which is on care and maintenance and is not material to operations, the site, under Peruvian government rules, would be allowed to resume operating activities in July. "In the first quarter of 2020, the company undertook a limited mining and mill processing campaign of approximately 25,000 tonnes; however, these activities were temporarily suspended following the federal government-mandated restrictions and will be potentially rescheduled towards the end of the third quarter," Great Panther said. It added that restarts in Mexico and Peru will be in a "phased approach following health guidelines and government regulations in each jurisdiction" to protect the health and safety of the firm's workforce and communities.
