Sierra Metals Inc. has reached an agreement with residents from the town of Alis following the blockade of the main access road to the Yauricocha mine, operated by the company’s subsidiary, Sociedad Minera Corona. Efforts to ensure critical safety and maintenance have been ongoing at the mine throughout the blockade. Safety inspections and reviews are underway to support a safe and progressive restart to operations at Yauricocha. Sierra Metals said it will continue to collaborate with the host communities in its area of influence to promote their development while supporting long-term, stable operations at the Yauricocha mine. At this time, it is not clear when the mine will reach its pre-suspension production levels.
