Canada's Gammon Gold said the labour strike at its El Cubo mine has been declared illegal by the Federal Labor Board.

In June the company suspended operations due to a labour disruption launched by union workers.

Gammon Gold chief executive officer Rene Marion said the ruling is an important first step in resuming operations at the mine.

The company will work through all legal channels to recover access to the facilities to assess the potential resumption of mining opportunities.
