Avino Silver temporarily halts mining at Avino

2020-07-10 08:00 ET - News Release

Mr. David Wolfin reports


Members from the Mexican mining union have blocked the entrance to Avino Silver & Gold Mines Ltd.'s Avino mine near Durango, Mexico. The group includes the company's unionized workers. The company remains receptive to having good-faith discussions with representatives of the authorized union. As a result of the strike at the site, the company has temporarily halted mining and mill processing operations.

"We have many dedicated workers and community supporters that have expressed their interest and backing. Avino has a strong desire in supporting the community surrounding our mine site and supporting our shareholders by working diligently towards an end to this slowdown," said David Wolfin, president and chief executive officer. "Our team in Mexico is handling this difficult challenge, and it is consequently very disappointing for all of us that this strike has held up the hard work and progress following the completed ramp-up of operations."

We seek Safe Harbor.
