TORONTO, Feb. 6, 2012 /CNW/ - Pacific Coal Resources Ltd. (TSXV: PAK) is
pleased to announce that it has resumed operations at its La Caypa
mine, which were stalled by an illegal work stoppage by unauthorized
personnel as announced in the Company's January 30, 2012 news release.
Operations at La Caypa resumed Saturday morning, and the Company's
production returned to normal levels by Sunday morning. The Company
will decisively work on catching up on lost production.
The disruption was cleared up when the Barrancas municipality issued an
order for the unauthorized personnel to clear the premises, which was
enforced by local police. The police force that participated in these
events is still at La Caypa and will remain stationed there throughout
next week. The Company wishes to acknowledge its security team and in
house counsel, as well as the local authorities who helped facilitate a
peaceful resolution to these events.
