Protesters threaten to halt production at Goldcorp's Penasquito mine in Mexico

Protesters are demanding payment for environmental damage, jobs and water for their communities as they are blocking the entrance of Goldcorp Inc.'s Penasquito mining complex in Mexico, Reuters reported Sept. 29, citing Felipe Pinedo, a protest leader.

The protests are in response to a long-running leak of contaminated water from the mine complex. The company did not disclose the leak publicly and is facing at least five separate class-action lawsuits regarding the situation.

The access blockage started Sept. 26, and the demonstrators are now threatening to halt production if demands are not met. The gold miner will run out of material by Oct. 1 if the protesters do not open the entrance immediately, a company source told Reuters, adding that the mine is running at low capacity.

Mexican regulators are probing whether Goldcorp breached any policies while handling the leak at Penasquito.
