PROFEPA REPORT CONFIRMS NO CONTAMINATION OF SOIL FROM OVERFLOW OF CONTINGENCY POND AT THE SAN JOSE MINE, MEXICO IN OCTOBER 2018
The Federal Attorney's Office for Environmental Protection (PROFEPA) has completed its investigation into the overflow of the contingency pond at the dry stack tailings facility that occurred at Fortuna Silver Mines Inc.'s San Jose mine on Oct. 8, 2018, which was caused by heavy seasonal rains (refer to
Fortuna news release dated Oct. 11, 2018). PROFEPA's final report confirms that the overflow did not contaminate soil. Therefore, no remediation is required.
The company awaits a final report from the Mexican National Water Commission (CONAGUA). The company reiterates its commitment to safeguarding the well-being of the environment, local communities and its work force.
