Great Panther Mining Limited (TSX: GPR, NYSE-A: GPL) has temporarily suspended operations at the Topia silver-gold-lead-zinc mine in Mexico due to covid-19 cases among the workforce.

Great Panther’s Tucano and Guanajuato mine complex remain in operation.
The suspension is not expected to impact the company’s ability to achieve its production guidance, Great Panther said in a press release.
