Does this mean that Barrick will try and claim that the Mina Pascua Mining Rights owned by Jorge are different than the ones owned by Barrick? Will Barrick claim that Pascua Lama and Mina Pascua are two separate ore bodies?
It appears that Barrick is avoiding the portion of the mining claim that is in dispute. All they have to do is develop the portion that is not in dispute and the Lopihanda "tribe" can just go in there with gold pans and water packed in by burros. Eventually the opportunists will see reality and make a reasonable deal to abandon their questionable claims. cl
