Lundin Gold Inc reported that operations are returning to normal as the movement of key supplies and personnel to and from its Fruta del Norte gold project have resumed with the lifting road blocks in Ecuador. The Company's efforts are now focused on ramping up activities safely. Now that the Project is on the national power grid, the Company expects that commissioning activities, which had been cut back, will return to the normal plan within the next few days.

Lundin Gold Inc had earlier reported that the ongoing civil unrest in Ecuador has started to have an impact on the activities on its Fruta del Norte gold project. As a result, the company has curtailed some activities in certain areas of the Project. The ongoing road blockades which erupted in the country on October 3, 2019, have prevented the movement of key supplies and personnel to and from Fruta del Norte. In an effort to mitigate the impact of this disruption, the Company has temporarily ceased or reduced activities related to mining, earthworks and commissioning of the process plant. The powerline connecting the Project to the national grid has been energized, thus alleviating the demand for fuel for power generation.
