BVI company resumed operations at San Andres gold mine

Thursday, February 14th, 2019

Aura Minerals Inc. made an announcement that it has resumed limited mining operations at its San Andres gold mine in Honduras. By words of the President and CEO of the BVI company, they have been closely working with local and national authorities and community to resolve the situation of the illegal occupation of their private lands by a small number of individuals. For the near-term, Aura will continue limited operations and expects to return mining activities to normal level progressively as the rule of law is enforced.

Aura’s President also said: “We are pleased to resume limited operations as the local economies were very detrimentally affected by the suspension. The suspension of operations negatively affects a number of stakeholders including our shareholders, close to a thousand employees and contractors and thousands of other Hondurans as the mine directly and indirectly, through taxes and a number of Aura initiatives, supports hospitals, schools and road maintenance among others.

Aura is focused on mining in complete terms – the so called 360° Mining. BVI company’s producing assets include the San Andres gold mine in Honduras, the Ernesto/Pau-a-Pique gold mine in Brazil and the Aranzazu copper-gold-silver mine in Mexico. The Company continues to explore options at Sao Francisco, and has two additional gold projects in Brazil and one gold project in Colombia.
