I'm sure you saw that on yahoo for abx. Says it will take 18 months to comply with the environmental aspect of what chile needs to start mining. I say shut the damnnnnn mine down and sell it to someone else that chile wants to work with. Save 4B in money and find gold somewhere else. This is killing the company you stupid managment dopes.
Barrick is in a no win situation. You can't sell what you don't own. Ask Barrick about the 2001 injunction covering Pascua Lama titles, then ask them why Barrick is facing criminal charges of fraud and malicious use of the Pascua Lama Protocol.
ABX knows exactly why they included those titles Amarillo 1-3000 and Tesoro 1 1/30 to Tesoro 12 1/5 in their Pascua Lama 6K and 43-101. It's fraud by Barrick and they are criminally Charged in Chile for it.
