ROAD TOWN, British Virgin Islands, July 8, 2021 — Aura Minerals Inc. (TSX: ORA) (B3: AURA33) (“Aura” or the “Company”) informs that it has decided to temporarily suspend operations at its San Andres Mine in Honduras as the result of illegal blockades by a small group of individuals from the local community. An investigation is currently underway to understand their demands.
The Company is also working with the local authorities to safely resume operations and will keep the market informed of any significant developments. The Company will not update its production guidance as a result of this suspension of operations at San Andreas Mine, for the moment.
