Guatemalan Supreme Court Reinstates Escobal License

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Sept. 10, 2017  -- Tahoe Resources Inc. (TSX: THO, NYSE: TAHO) ("Tahoe" or the "Company") reported today that the Guatemalan Supreme Court issued a decision that reinstates the Escobal mining license of Tahoe's Guatemalan subsidiary, Minera San Rafael ("MSR"). This decision reverses the Supreme Court's preliminary decision to suspend MSR's license in connection with an action brought by the anti-mining organization, CALAS, against Guatemala's Ministry of Energy and Mines ("MEM"). CALAS alleges that MEM violated the Xinca indigenous people's right of consultation in advance of granting the Escobal mining license to MSR. 
 
As part of its decision, the Supreme Court ordered MEM to conduct a consultation under ILO Convention 169. Per the ruling, MEM has been ordered to consult with the Xinca indigenous communities within a certain geographic area and report results of the consultation to the satisfaction of the Court within 12 months. Tahoe is seeking clarification from the Supreme Court on the specific geographical departments to be included within the scope of MEM's consultation. Although Tahoe believes that MEM complied with ILO Convention 169 before it issued the Escobal license, it will fully support MEM in any of its future indigenous engagement and will encourage MEM to involve independent ILO 169 experts to assist in this process.
