Mexican protesters agreed to lift a blockade at Newmont Goldcorp’s Penasquito mine on Friday, according to a government document seen by Reuters, ending a standoff that led to the mine stopping production for more than a month.

An official at the Interior Ministry, which issued the document signed by protesters and company representatives, confirmed its authenticity.
