(Kitco News) - Fortuna Silver Mines (NYSE: FSM) reported late Wednesday that a blockade of roads in San Jose del Progreso, which had prevented access to the company’s San José silver-gold mine in Mexico, has been lifted.

As a result, operations at San Jose were slated to resume overnight, the company said in a brief statement.

Earlier this week, the company had reported that a group of people, including a former mayor of the municipality, had blockaded Federal Highway 175 and other roads, including access to the mine, in order to protest an action taken by the Electoral Tribunal of the State of Oaxaca on a mayoral appointment.
