Fresnillo third-quarter silver output dips, Mexico labour reforms hurt

Oct 27 (Reuters) - Precious metals miner Fresnillo Plc reported a 4.7% fall in third quarter silver production on Wednesday, and said the new labour reforms in Mexico had resulted in an increased number of staff vacancies at its underground mines.

The company, which owns seven operating mines in the Latin American nation, said the new labour reforms in the country restricting the ability to subcontract labour has affected equipment availability and utilisation rates at some of its operations.
