Restart of operations at San Jose



Hochschild Mining PLC ("Hochschild" or "the Company") is today announcing that, as expected, following permission from the authorities in the Santa Cruz province in Argentina, the Company has restarted limited operations at the San Jose mine. As detailed in the release dated 30 November 2020, a significant increase in Covid-19 infections had resulted in a temporary lockdown of various mines in the region with San Jose mandated to halt operations. A reduced level of staff are now on-site to oversee the final production of the unit's revised 2020 output target.


The Company remains on track to meet its revised full year guidance of between 280,000-290,000 gold equivalent ounces or 24.0-25.0 million silver equivalent ounces.
