Torex Announces Suspension Of Employment Contracts


TORONTO, Ontario, December 18, 2017 – Torex Gold Resources Inc. (the “Company” or “Torex”) (TSX:TXG) announces, with great regret, that it has suspended the employment contracts of its workforce in Mexico. This suspension is the direct result of an illegal blockade of its ELG Mine, by the Los Mineros Union, an outside union that wants to take over representation of the employees who already have a union. Since the blockade began, on November 3, 2017, the Company has continued to pay its workforce, except for the minority that have participated in the illegal blockade. The suspension of the employment contracts was effective on December 16, 2017, and will affect all employees in Mexico, with the exception of a small number that will manage the Company’s ongoing responsibilities.
