CHILE – Chile’s environmental court has rules that the Pascua-Lama gold project belonging to Toronto’s Barrick Gold has not damaged glaciers within the project area.

“We are pleased that the court has confirmed what the technical and scientific evidence demonstrates, that these ice bodies have not been damaged by activities at the Pascua-Lama project,” said Barrick’s executive director for Chile Eduardo Flores.

Barrick (Barrick.com) continues to monitor the glaciers, capturing data from 27 points, and providing that information directly to regulatory authorities.
