The door is opened for an even harder line against those protesting a $4.8B gold and copper mine to be opened by Newmont (NEM) and Buenaventura (BVN) in Peru after Salomon Lerner - arguably the 2nd most powerful man in government - resigns. President Humala - who would have sided with the protesters a few years back - this week ordered the military to step in against the demonstrators.

    The correct symbol for Newmont Mining is NEM. Sheesh.

    Why I always warn miners are not the same as buying real PMs.
    Law suits an gov takeovers too. Not just indigenous peoples !

     

    Dr Ferguson's 6 part series is worth a look. While it's still available.
    Watch the first show an you'll understand why LA indigenous peoples don't want mining !

    A miner's tax should only be allowed if the bureaucrat who wants it is willing to pick up their shovel with the people in the ditch.
