More on the Torex Gold ( mine blockade

Yesterday morning IKN was the first to tell you about the latest round of community relations problems at the Torex Gold ( Media Luna mine in Guerrero, Mexico. 

It wasn't an April Fool.

Last night Mexico's Milenio newspaper ran this report on the problems, i.e. hundreds of locals from three small towns around the mine who are blocking the mine entrances (and letting workers out, but not in) because TXG hasn't kept its word on the social programs it promised, plus the local fishing community is still annoyed about the way the mine is polluting local rivers and killing the fish.

To date no resolution between the two sides.
To date TXG hasn't bothered to tell the market about this obviously material piece of news.
