Goldcorp: Trucking contractor behind 'illegal blockage' at Penasquito mine

Goldcorp Inc. has clarified that the blockade at the Penasquito mine complex in Mexico was not in response to a tailings leak, but initiated by a local trucking contractor.

In a Sept. 30 email to S&P Global Market Intelligence, a spokeswoman for the company stated that "a trucking contractor who is concerned about losing business" had set up what she called an "illegal blockage," as Goldcorp is making efficiency improvements at Penasquito and looking to diversify its supply chain.

She said operations at the mine are not affected, adding that the company met with the contractor's representatives and expects to resolve the issue shortly.

An earlier report had suggested the blockade was in response to a long-running leak of contaminated water from the mine complex, and the protesters were demanding payment for environmental damage, jobs and water for their communities.
