A group of area residents had blocked ground transportation to the mine, alleging the company had failed to fulfill its commitments to the community. Mr Steve Stakiw, Trevali’s vice president of investor relations, said by email “Delivery of supplies resumed over the past few days with full operations now back online and at nameplate levels.”

Mr Stakiw did not say how the problem was solved.

The company, which previously called the blockade illegal, said it had complied with all of its contractual obligations to the community and was cooperating fully with authorities.
