Protesters block Goldcorp's top Peñasquito mine in Mexico

Tuesday, October 3, 2017

Protesters in northern Mexico blocked access for a fourth day on Monday to a gold mine operated by Canada’s Goldcorp over a water dispute, a development that could hit the facility’s production of the precious metal.

The entrances to the Peñasquito mine have been occupied since Thursday by protesters who demand the company make good on a commitment to supply nearby communities with water, said Felipe Pinedo, a leader of the protesters.
