Semafo unsure of resuming work at Guinea gold mine

Sept 30 (Reuters) – Canadian gold miner Semafo said it is unsure when it will be able to resume operations at its Kiniero mine in Guinea, where it recently halted work.

“The stoppage is a precautionary measure following a protest by local residents around the property. At this time, we cannot ascertain when operations will resume,” said Benoit Desormeaux, Semafo’s chief operating officer.

The company had also evacuated all its expatriate workers from the mine in Africa after protests by locals over jobs turned violent earlier this month.
