Sierra Metals has restarted operations at its Peruvian mines after the country’s government loosened restrictions on mining activities.
In addition to calling back furloughed employees and contractors, the company announced it would soon ramp up operations to make up for lost output during the COVID-19-related shutdowns.
The company is also resuming operations at its Bolivar mine in Mexico after tthe country’s government allowed mining services to restart earlier this month. However, its Cusi mine will remain under care and maintenance.
The miner also noted that all employees being called back to its Yauricocha and Bolivar mines would complete a testing and screening process. It also plans to include a quarantine period for these workers before they begin active work.
