Torex Announces a Temporary Suspension of Activities at its El Limon-Guajes Mine Due to an Illegal Blockade

Fred Stanford, President & CEO of Torex stated: “It is truly unfortunate that a selfish few put their wants above the need of so many that worked so hard to make this project a success. The majority of the community has not supported these families and community representatives have lodged legal complaints against their activities. If the Company were to submit to this sort of extortion then we would be vulnerable to similar threats throughout what we expect could be a very long life operation on the Morelos Property. Rather than establish such a precedent, we prefer to suspend operations until the authorities take the next step in providing a law and order environment in which we can operate. The authorities have been actively involved in resolving the situation and we hope that their efforts are successful soon. It would be a shame if the actions of a selfish few were allowed to destroy the potential for so many to improve the opportunities for themselves and their families.”
