Canadian miner Pan American Silver is “optimistic” that it can negotiate the reopening of its Navidad mine, which was closed by officials in the Argentine province of Chubut, the company’s chairperson Ross Beaty said on Thursday.

The project has been on hold since 2013 when it ran afoul of provincial rules banning the use of cyanide in openpit mining.
