Mexico mining output up in June

Mexico’s mining output increased in June as the sector rebounded from last year’s COVID-19 suspensions.

Production was up 11.5% year-on-year, according to statistics agency Inegi. Output was up 15.2% in H1.

The June rise was far lower than the 42% rebound recorded for May.

The bulk of Mexico’s mines were halted in April-May 2020 due to a pandemic-related lockdown, before restarting in June after the sector was deemed essential.

Separate physical production data showed a 31.7% rise for May, with non-coking coal, zinc, gold, silver and lead registering the biggest increases.

June figures have not yet been released.

Mexico is the world’s biggest silver producer and a top 10 miner of gold, copper, lead and zinc.
