Protests force Lundin to reduce activity at Ecuadorian gold project

The ongoing civil unrest in Ecuador over the government's austerity drive has started to impact Lundin Gold Inc.'s operations at the Fruta del Norte gold project.

The company curtailed some activities in certain areas of the project after ongoing road blockades prevented supplies and personnel from moving to and from the project.

Lundin said Oct. 13 that it temporarily ceased or reduced activities related to mining, earthworks and commissioning of the process plant at the project to mitigate the impact of the disruption.

However, the company still expects to achieve its target of first gold production this quarter.

The company noted that the project is receiving power through a line connected to the national grid, and work related to the outstanding permits is ongoing.

The protests also forced a copper mine in the country to temporarily limit operations amid safety concerns for its workers.
