Admitting what has become obvious, Barrick Gold (ABX) says completion of the Pascua-Lama project will be delayed beyond 2014, and capital costs likely will exceed its $8B-$8.5B estimate. ABX will "evaluate all alternatives" for Pascua-Lama in light of the current legal and regulatory issues, but few expect it to give up totally on such an important part of its long-term future. ABX -2.3% premarket.
