Update re Santa Cruz Regional Lockdown

 

 

Hochschild Mining PLC ("Hochschild" or "the Company") is today announcing that a significant increase in Covid-19 infections in the Santa Cruz province in Argentina has resulted in a temporary lockdown of various mines. The Company's San Jose operation has therefore been mandated to halt operations and is currently undertaking a deep-clean of the site's facilities and equipment. Subject to permission from the authorities, Hochschild is expecting to restart limited operations on 4 December 2020.

 

The stoppage is not expected to affect the Company's revised full year guidance of between 280,000-290,000 gold equivalent ounces or 24.0-25.0 million silver equivalent ounces.
