Silver and gold producer “Fresnillo” denied on Wednesday August 12th media reports that thieves had stolen around 300 kilograms of gold from one of its mines in northern Mexico, saying the true figure was 4.5 kilograms of gold and silver worth about US$165,000.
“Fresnillo”, which mines silver and gold from six mines in Mexico and is controlled by mining giant Peñoles, said it was cooperating with authorities investigating the theft from its Herradura mine in the northern Mexican state of Sonora.
The company said nobody was injured in the heist but gave no further details. Mexican media reports on Wednesday August 12th said thieves stole around 300 kilograms of gold.
“The haul was worth about US$8 million,” McEwen Mining said.
According to “Fresnillo”, the Herradura mine employs more than 1,500 people and produced 98,359 ounces of gold in the first quarter of 2015. It has reserves of 5.3 million ounces of gold.
