Mines owned and operated by Canadian mining companies in Burkina Faso are continuing to operate unaffected by the political situation in that country.
Iamgold said that the supply chains for its Essakane mine, located about 330 km from the capital Ouagadougou, had not been impacted by developments in Burkina Faso.
