Cerro Corona, which is about 60km away from the proposed Conga project but is on the same public road, has been able to secure supplies to maintain production for a further week and is considering alternative supply routes should the protest action be prolonged.
Gold Fields is monitoring the situation and will keep shareholders informed should potential supply disruptions impact production at Cerro Corona.
