The Week in Mining highlights developments in Mexico’s mining industry. At the government level, the country’s senate ratified the trade agreement with the US and Canada and reassuring declarations came forth from the Ministry of Economy. On the sector’s forefront, Fresnillo’s debt outlook was reduced, Azure is set to start its fully-funded Oposura project and Mexican Gold Corp. reshuffled some of its key executive positions. Gold prices raced to levels not seen since 2013, potentially galvanized by the Fed’s dovish declarations. Also, informed that technology has been key in improving mining safety, while Rio Tinto unleashed the world’s biggest robot in Western Australia.

Finally, do not miss this week’s Interview of the Week with Octavio Alvídrez, CEO of Fresnillo, where we discuss how the Mexican champion has weathered the economic downturn and remained at the top of the industry.
