Police clearing protesters at Goldcorp's Penasquito mine

Police started to clear trucks blocking Goldcorp Inc.'s Penasquito gold mine in Zacatecas, Mexico, Oct. 4, the company confirmed to SNL Metals & Mining the same day.

"State government and law enforcement officials commenced the orderly removal of vehicles illegally blocking roadways earlier today," Christine Marks, director of communications, said by email.

Zacatecas Gov. Alejandro Tello said the eviction was carried out peacefully, NTR Zacatecas reported.

Tello also noted that he would not allow blackmail to occur and that the law must be respected.

An investigation into the leaders of the protest would be initiated, the governor said.

The blockade began last week, and Goldcorp has said truckers started it after the company tried to diversify its supply chain. Other issues, in particular water contamination, have cropped up at the blockade, according to media reports.

In August, Reuters reported that Goldcorp was having problems with elevated selenium in groundwater on the mine site, though it was said not to have been an issue beyond.
