Fortuna’s San Jose mine in Mexico resumes operations as blockade ends

In a brief report late Wednesday, it said an illegal blockade of roads in the municipality of San Jose del Progreso that prevented access to the mine has ended.

Earlier this week, the Canadian company said a group of people led by the former mayor of San Jose del Progreso had erected the blockades to protest state actions to revoke his appointment as mayor.
