Hochschild provides update on COVID-19 cases at Inmaculada
Hochschild Mining PLC ("Hochschild" or "the Company") is today announcing that, despite taking a number of preventative measures, including a comprehensive testing programme as well as quarantine for all employees, there has been a number of workers testing positive for Covid-19 at the Inmaculada operation. In the circumstances, the Company has naturally prioritised the health of its employees above business continuity and temporarily halted operations.
As before, Inmaculada will continue with a reduced workforce operating care and maintenance activities at the site. Hochschild expects to resume operations as soon as a safe and healthy workforce can return to site.
Both Pallancata in Peru and San Jose in Argentina currently remain in operation.
