TORONTO ( – New York- and Toronto-listed Coeur d’Alene Mines on Monday resumed operations at its Palmajero silver/gold operation in northern Mexico, following the death of a miner late on Sunday night.

The Idaho-based company said it did not expect any change to its full-year production guidance.

Underground operations at the Palmajero mine were suspended after a worker fell while doing surface maintenance work. The openpit operation and milling plant remained in operation.

An official investigation into the cause of the accident continued.

The company also operates mines in the US and Bolivia.

The company’s Toronto-listed shares traded 1.34% higher at C$21.90 apiece on Tuesday morning.
