A judge told a radio station in the Argentina province of San Juan that he had lifted a suspension on leaching operations at Canada-based Barrick Gold’s Veladero mine on Thursday.

Judge Pablo Oritja said on Radio Light FM he understood Barrick had finished all required work following its third cyanide spill in 18 months and had ordered an end to restrictions put in place in late March. A Barrick spokesperson in Argentina said the company had not been formally notified.
