    wow

    ABX not only sold a SALTS / NITRATES as ex LAC 1994 concessions a.ka. PASCUA PROSPECTUS

    Its most senior management in Chile since LAC and ALAN BOND verified

    all drilling stopped 2001 perhaps C'1912'2001 legal injunction of Mr. Lopehandia did that to Pascua and ABX.

    no drilling at Pascua after 2001... 43101 is in MSX + Lopehandia concessions 2013

    all drilling for ABX 43101 was done at SALTS / NITRATES concessions ex LAC 1994'2013

    what a feast for MSX and Mr. Lopehandia, they won the ore body of PASCUAin Chile

    What a fraud for ABX hiding behind excuse after excuse SEC + OSC fraud at Pascua Prospectus

    Even if environment damages are fixed by ABX ,

    NO TAX TREATY will put off ABX shareholders from Pascua another 20 years of excuses until Munk is over decade underground buried and laughing in h e l l

    So much for PASCUA PONZI SCAM 1994 'to 2016 as ABX deceives the markets

    Lama the 7 Billion fraud has no minerals and is unable to be mined from Argentina only

    • It is confirmed by practically everyone else on this message board (including ABX insiders), Jorge Lopehandia is a lying, scamming piece of donkey dung. QUACK QUACK QUACK

      Sentiment: Hold

    • The largest gold mining company in the world, Barrick Gold and its Chilean subsidiary, Nevada Spa Mining, could lose in the coming months the Pascua deposit worth millions after a series of frauds regarding mining property and repeated poor environmental practices. The deposit is known as the Pascua-Lama, with the name Pascua from the Chilean side, and Lama from the Argentine side.

      Barrick Gold is accused of illegally extracting gold minerals along with outlawed salt and nitrate concessions. The accusations include mining gold from Chile while ignoring a provisional Supreme Court measure that prohibits mining activity and securing new contracts, conducting business in the international bank with “phony” titles, and trying to obstruct justice using false testimony, among others. The accusations have been presented by Chilean mine owner, Jorge Lopehandía, who along with Mountainstar Gold Inc, were granted legal ownership of the Pascua mine in February.

      On February 1, 2013, Alan GS Hultman, the lawyer for Mountainstar Gold Inc, received the Pascua Mine Chile property titles and its mining concessions.

      On January 16, the titles were issued in Vallenar, Chile by the Mines Commissioner, Paulo Cortes Olguín. This grants sole legal jurisdiction over the Pascua Mine area concessions and titles, to Lopehandía, who has been threatened and pressured by Barrick Gold to waive his own rights.
      The titles were authenticated by the Ministry of Justice and the Ministry of Chilean Exterior Relations and have been validated by the Canadian Embassy in Santiago, Chile. This happened after Barrick tried to invalidate Lopehandía’s actions in Canada several times.

      This is a check or almost checkmate for Barrick, because in Chile the only person authorized to grant a valid mining property certificate, or for that matter, who can validate the right [to mining property], is the Mines Commissionar, who in this case is from the the jurisdiction of the city of Vallenar.

      The Mines Commissioner established in a legal document that the concessions of the Pascua Project in Chile: Tesoros Uno 1 al 30 through Tesoros Doce 1 al 5 are in Jorge Lopehandía’s name, making him the valid title-holder from 2013 onward.

      Thus this advance ruling underscores that Barrick Gold Corporation (ABX), or its affiliates in Chile do not have titles nor have they ever had titles for these concessions.
      Secondly, the Commissionar established through the work of Lopehandía’s mining agent, Mr. Villar, that “Amarillos North (12,850 acres) and Amarillos South (8,400 acres) have been Lopehandía’s property since 1996.

      Both Lopehandía and Brent Johnson, his partner from Mountainstar Gold Inc, reiterated their confidence in the Chilean justice system, adding that “all the false declarations made by Barrick executives and their affiliates in Chile in relation to these titles, have given way to criminal chrges, and a call for jail sentences against those involved with the case.”

      Barrick Paralyzed for Damaging the Environment
      In addition, Barrick Gold has been ordered to pay the sum of 2,000 UTM a Chilean currency unit to calculate taxes, fines, and custom duties, close to 120 million pesos or $254,400 USD], a fine issued for irregularities in environmental mismanagement and for not fulfilling its commitments and mitigation measures of the Environmental Ratings Resolution (RCA in Spanish).

      “All mining operations in Pascua Lama are paralyzed,” clarified Mauricio Pino, the Regional Ministerial Mining Secretary of Atacama.

      The above finding was a result of the Atacama General Direction of Waters’(DGA in Spanish) detection of particulate matter in the surrounding glaciers, which the company had unsuccessfully attempted to hide.

      Barrick is accused of failures in the handling of the mine’s wastewater plant, failure in the monitoring of the glaciers located in the Cordillera mountains of the Huasco valley in the Atacama region, and failures in its efforts to avoid transporting material over the glaciers, which threatens their conservation and the sustainability of the water flow in the basin.

      Barrick risks losing its environmental permit from the Environmental Superintendent if it continues to commit these serious infractions.

      It should also be added that in October 2012, work was already stopped by the National Geology and Mining Service (Sernageomin) after they detected that the mines caused pollution and health risks to the workers.

    • And the point of all this is what? that you have poor Paragraph structure? I try to not take investment advice from posters with a 4th grade writing ability.

      • I suggest DD with Barricks title issue is required as ABX has not been truthful with respect to the 2001 Chile Court injunction against Barricks Pascua Lama titles. ABX reported the 2001 injunction in their financials in 2005 but failed to report on the outcome. Mr Lopehandia has recieved the legal rights to the injunctioned areas with his titles and certified domain. Mtstack2000 is trying to do DD and "feels" ABX is stealing 2 million ounces of Gold from Mr Lopehandia's properties but as we have provided, Mtstack2000's opinion is wrong, expert technical reports show the Pascua Lama deposit is located on the area coved by the injunction which is now Mr Lopehandia's properties which was once the flawed ABX titles AMARILLO 1-3000 never permitted for gold exploitation. Barrick has fraud in the SEC and OSC and Pascua Lama Protocol regulatory books.

        Check out Mtstack agrees Barrick is committing fraud by including Tesoro and Amarillo 1-3000 concessions in Barricks books as he/she says only 2 million ounces are located on that property not owned by ABX but faking ownership in Barricks books:

        Mtstack2000 quote "When Barrick concluded its extensive exploration program in 1999, they could claim 20 million ozs of gold reserves, which included both the LAC original amount and their newly discovered deposits in the location of their current mine pit in Chile and Argentina. The injunction on the Amarillo/Tesoro claims was put in place in 2001, necessitating the removal of the LAC original 2 million ozs from their reserves leaving the 17.9 million oz to which they now attest. All of the resources that Barrick claims for Pascua Lama are from the, as Mr. Albanez terms it, "new project" in a totally separate location from the original LAC areas. "

        "TECHNICAL REPORT LOCATION: MINA PASCUA (PASCUA-LAMA) PROJECT, CHILE

        Catalino Albanez Vergara, Ingeniero Ejecución en Minas [T.N.: This appears to mean Mining Enforcement Engineer; hereinafter I.E.M.], Expert Mine Surveyor since 1980 and Court-accredited Expert for the Appeals Court of La Serena, domiciled at “Pasaje Los Olivos 955”, La Serena, hereby states:

        1.-Nevada Mining Company 1994 PASCUA-LAMA PROJECT THE AMARILLOS 1 THROUGH 3000.- This mineral deposit (PASCUA-LAMA project) is located inside of the AMARILLOS 1 THROUGH 3000 mining properties and it is in turn located within the groups of mining properties TESORO FIVE and TESORO SEVEN, where they are located as shown in the report presented to COREMA and the pertinent entities and public opinion for the purpose of obtaining the corresponding sectoral permits for the development of the mineral deposit denominated PASCUA-LAMA, which is complemented with photographs from “GEOGLE” [presumably “GOOGLE”] showing the whole yellow mountain (alteration deposit) which is also mentioned in the official Survey Record, in the chapter entitled “Acceso al HM” [Access to HM]; the same is described in later surveys of the TESORO FIVE and TESORO SEVEN groups.

        CONCLUSIONS REGARDING LEGAL TITLE AUTHORITY AS AT JUNE 15, 2011. To this date there are no valid marginal annotations on these title deeds in the name of Barrick Gold Corporation-ABX of Canada, Barrick Chile or Minera Nevada Limitada, according to an original copy of same which I have before me. The original 2011 copy DOES certify by means of a marginal annotation the litigious rights of Mr. Jorge R. Lopehandia Cortes as the first-claim legal right to title.

        FINAL CONCLUSION The properties LOS AMARILLOS 1 through 3000 and TESOROS should not have been included in the list of mining properties as being the property of BARRICK GOLD CORPORATION-ABX of Canada, due to the fact that these properties have not been nor are they now registered in the name of said firm at the Registrar of Mines of the City of Vallenar, in the Atacama Region, Republic of Chile, in conformity with Chilean law. Moreover, these title deeds could not have been transferred or sold or contracted in any manner whether in Chile or abroad due to the fact that a prohibition is in place, granted by a Chilean Court which prohibits the carrying out of actions or execution of contracts."

      • That's a very good motto. In fact, I think taking investment advice from anyone who posts on a message board should be eschewed. :)

    • Please provide:

      1. UTM coordinates of the "Pascua ore body".
      2. Number of Amarillo Sur concession(s) on which it lies.
      3. Drill results with grade/resource estimate for the UTM coordinates/Amarillo Sur concession(s) provided in 1 & 2.

      The above requests are called "evidence".

      Thank you for your cooperation.

      • Please provide:

        1. ABX ownership of Tesoro 1 1/30 to Tesoro 12 1/5 and proof of ABX having the legal right to exploit the Pascua Lama deposit with AMARILLO 1-3000?
        2. Proof ABX owns AMARILLO Sur based on Barricks affidavit in Ontario court for liable vs Mr Lopehandia?
        3.Drill results with grade/resource estimate and UTM of Barricks Pascua Lama Project by a title by title bases?
        4. Status and results of the 2001 Chile court injunction covering AMARILLO 1-3000 based on Barricks 2005 financial report to investors?
        5. Status of each title ABX included into the Pascua Lama Protocol, SEC and OSC regulatory filings including proof of title and/or certified domain?

        ABX is the one facing criminal charges in chile for their fraudulent use of titles as well as class actions on Pascua Lama for committing securities fraud.

        The above is called evidence.

        Thank you for your cooperation.

      • Mtstack2000 you are wrong and the opinion of experts are right. The deposit of Pascua Lama on the Chile side of the project is located on AMARILLO 1-3000 which Barrick has zero legal rights to mine. Mr Lopehandia has the legal rights with his titles. Please stop protecting Barricks fraudulent ownership of Tesoro 1 1/30 to Tesoro 12 1/5 and AMARILLO 1-3000, those properties are on the land Mr Lopehandia owns which has also been subject to the 2001 Pascua Lama Chile court injunction preventing ABX from ownership. Barrick reported the injunction in their 2005 reports but ABX has failed to report on the outcome of the injunction. The outcome is that Mr Lopehandia has the legal rights as proven by the mines commissioner in Vallenar giving Mr Lopehandia certified domain.

        It should be great news for everyone who is against corruption in that Mr Lopehandia has more proof to back up what expert reports have been saying, the deposit of Pascua Lama is located on Mr Lopehandia's titles which is located on Barricks fraudulent AMARILLO 1-3000 titles.
