TSX- and LSE- quoted First Quantum Minerals has temporarily suspended normal operations at its Guelb Moghrein copper-gold mine in Mauritania due to strike action by some unionized employees.

“The company has sought a negotiated resolution. While these efforts continue, steps are now being undertaken to further scale back management resources at site until a decision to restart normal operations is made,” First Quantum Minerals said in a statement.
